How to Add a Google+ Tab for Your Facebook Fan Page with Cercoe

How are you doing on Google+? Almost addicted? Or feels boring and staring at it? Else you just started to play with Google+ to give more exposure to your content. But the question is, did you get more attention to your content on Google+? Sometimes you may find that Google+ does better in creating conversations. But sometimes even not a single interaction. Just go through your old posts on Google+ and you may find a solution yourself. You can analyze the posts that have more interaction and try posting future posts on identified productive time slots. That's your best shot. Apart from that, what if can get more exposure for your Google+ posts on Facebook?

How to Get More Exposure?

Confused? Hmmm... How you give more exposure to your Google+ content? No... no... the first question you should ask is "Why you should show them off on Facebook?". If you have a blog or website, you can let people follow you or your Google+ page directly from your site. But do visitors make use of it? May be people just never notice it or some just read your content via email or news reader. Else you just don't have a website. But they may still engage with your page on Facebook. Therefore, you can show off your Google+ posts on it and let them find out your Google+ page or profile if they wanna follow or switch. Absolutely, this is a kind of promotional activity. Did you remember showing off Pinterest boards and pins on Facebook? Same goes here. You have to find this as a opportunity. Not as your strength to grab more followers or recommendations. 'Cause you can't forget about 900 million of users on Facebook. The more population means, you are exposed to more opportunity. So if you're interested, you can find how you gonna show them off.

This looks like a great application that I may try when I have more time. I'm all technically challenged out after this week :) I do want to add more tabs on the Facebook pages. This will inspire me to do it in the very near future. Thanks!

You're welcome Lisa :) I know what you mean. I hope many who would like to get more conversations on Google+ or spend more time on Google+ would find this one interesting. Actually to promote Google+ profile or page :)

Hi Mayura,

Thank you for this tip. I have never really had the time to analyse Google+ much so far, except for linking my content to it, but thanks to posts like this one I am learning tricks.

I will definitely follow the steps you indicate here and do that :)

Hi Sylviane,

You're welcome dear :) It's a great way to expose your Google+ content and grab more attention on it via Facebook. Sometimes your fans never notice your Google+ posts and here they can find them easily. Absolutely worth a shot :)

Thanks for stopping by and commenting dear :)

Hi! I think there is some issue with this app, when I hit the configure button it keeps routing me back to the same install screen, it never gives me the option to enter in my google plus page ID, do you have any suggestions? Please email me at cdavy7@yahoo.com~ thanks Calla! 

Mayura De Silva said...

Hi Calla,

Generally it happens if you haven't authorized the app to access your Facebook account. Are you sure, you have allowed it? If you allowed, I suggest you try it again in few hours. For me, it's working right now.Please don't expose email addresses in public Calla :) Spammers will love it.

Thanks for stopping by and let me know if it's not working.

Hi Mayura, I'm dropping by to say "THANKS" for this tutorial and for the app. I'm not sure if you are the author of the app, but it works fine and setup went smoothly. Plus, thanks for recommending the app, I thought it was difficult to setup a Google+ tab within Facebook page, but it turned out very easy. Thanks again!

Mayura De Silva said...
