Why You Should Not Buy Google Plus Followers

Comments Off on Why You Should Not Buy Google Plus Followers

This is an article I submitted for publication on Ezine Articles, and they rejected it, like they have done with almost 90% of the articles I’ve submitted over the years there.Buy Google Plus Followers

It’s about why you should not buy Google Plus followers, and it was written after I had my Google Plus account suspended. I managed to get it back since then, but I was a little annoyed when I wrote this.

I’ve actually only submitted about ten articles on that site, so it’s more like 60% of the articles I’ve submitted there that they’ve rejected, but you get the point, it’s hard to get around the quality control, even with a high quality article like this:

So this is meant to be an explanation of why you should not buy Google Plus followers. I sell Google Plus followers, or that’s the keyword I go by when explaining my range of social media marketing services that I do for people, on that site.

Google Plus suspended my account, and did not give a reason, just referred me to the rules of content and conduct, and that was it, over a year’s hard work down the drain, with no comeback.

The rules of the site say that you cannot post a link to a site that sells or makes money from the sale of alcohol, firearms, tobacco, medical equiment, pharmecueticals, pornography, or anything they deem to be slightly unpleasant.

Basically, they can suspend anyone, for any reason, at any time they feel like it, and they don’t care one iota about your feelings on the subject.

That was all I could work out that I was doing wrong in the rules, which conveniently include that you aren’t allowed to do anything at all, or they’ll get rid of you just because they don’t like your face.

I definitely wasn’t spamming, or if I’m a spammer, then so is everyone on the site. I used sites that allowed you to promote your social profile to get followers, (that’s legal talk for buy or swap social followers), and that is allowed in the terms of service of those sites, and there is no legal case to try to prevent that.

I have no idea what I did wrong, if I knew, if it was something I could avoid next time, or fix now, I would do it, but they never even told me what it was, or gave me a chance to fix it.

Now, I am sick of being censored, being treated like a spammer, a criminal, a lower breed of human being that is not allowed to post and publish things online.

Google Plus Is A Waste Of Time

I’m not denying that it has some of the elements of Facebook and Twitter, but when you combine those two elements, you get your account suspended, unlike either of the other huge social media sites, which very rarely suspend you for anything.

I run a business, I have products and services to sell, but I am not a spam robot, nor am I trying to annoy or scam anybody, in any way.

I am sick of this idea of quality control extending to the point that I will probably not even get this article published on this site because I use the word “I” in it.

This is an utterly ridiculous state of affairs, where a person has their life dictated to them by the people upstairs running the online world, which is where most people live these days.

They aren’t even partially connected to the government, and they think they can tell us how to think, how to act, it’s like they have self-appointed themselves the high council on the proper putting together of words on the internet.

I’m not going to start swearing, I’m not going to start swearing. Don’t get the electric collar, I’ll be good, I promise!

After Having Time To Think About Google Plus

This is me writing some more today, a couple of weeks later, after getting my Google Plus account back.

It turned out that I had another account with the same name on Google Plus, and I deleted that one.

I haven’t had any more problems since then on the site, although I am still extremely wary of using it.

I wrote an article about how to add the Google Plus author tags, which may be something that Google decides to insist upon for higher rankings.

I don’t like that, but it may be important if you are claiming authorship to have a large amount of verified followers with photos. The best way to get these is through following people and hoping they follow you back.

I can do possibly that for you if they let me log in from another country, and if you are happy to give me the log in details of your Google Plus account, I work fairly cheap.

The other method is not as good, but it definitely works, getting them from social swapping sites, which is where I get most of the things I sell like Facebook likes, Twitter followers, You Tube views, tweets, shares, and many other things.

With the importance that might be placed in coming years on your Google Plus account, it’s important that you don’t get yourself into trouble and get your account suspended, as it can happen for many reasons and is hard to get back.

Your Google account is linked to You Tube, Blogger, and all the various other Google products, but the followers I sell are safe, they stick, and they are real people, even if some of the accounts don’t have photos.

If you are interested in discussing me getting you some followers on Google Plus, Twitter followers, Facebook likes, social sharing, guest posts, video production, etc, send me a message, my email is in the sidebar.

How To Add The Google Plus rel=”author” Tag On Your Blog Posts

Comments Off on How To Add The Google Plus rel=”author” Tag On Your Blog Posts

This is something that I was not looking forward to even making an attempt at, but I tried it out today, by adding a little bit of code at the top of all of my blog posts.The Google Plus rel="author" tag

As you can probably see, (if I haven’t removed it), I have a link that says copyright Rowan Casey at the top of my posts now.

The link is a special link that claims authorship of that post, and links to my Google Plus profile.

It also claims authorship of the guest posts as well, but I couldn’t be bothered figuring out how to reconfigure it not to do that.

It looks like this in code: <a rel=”author” href=”https://plus.google.com/110172400710124550294″>Rowan Casey</a> and I also had to add the URL of this domain to the contributor to section of my Google Plus profile, and make that public.

How To Add The Google Plus Authorship Code To All Your Blog Posts

I used a WordPress plugin that I use for ads called Post Layout which is free, which allowed me to add that code to the top of all of my blog posts, along with a copyright in ordinary text before it. If you want to make the copyright symbol, I can’t be bothered remembering the code for that, look it up.

The way you check that it is connected is to use the Google rich snippets testing tool. This is all for me a bit like a science fiction horror movie, but having said that it seems to have worked.

People should not have to learn code to that extent to be able to claim authorship of their blog posts, articles, videos, etc.

I publish on dozens of different sites, and I cannot imagine how I could possibly begin to start adding codes like this everywhere I write, and whether I would even want to, but that’s another question.

I found out this information on a Social Media Examiner article called Google Author Tags, and it goes on for more than that, and more than I could even understand, but if you want to learn more, read that article.

I used the rich snippets testing tool, and it said that I “might” have my profile picture appear next to search results. After all of that. Thanks Google for your wonderful way of making all our lives easier!

Why am I bothering to do this if I think it’s all so complicated and annoying? Because Google Plus are the same people who own Google, and if they decide that there will be a distinct SEO advantage for the people who have this authorship code on their pages, then that’s what they decide, and there’s not all that much you can do about it.

Google Plus Account Suspended

Comments Off on Google Plus Account Suspended

So I got my Google Plus account suspended, for no reason that I can work out. Everyone who uses the site uses it for internet marketing.

It is the internet marketing social media site, whether they want it to be, or not. It’s a place for bloggers, site owners, video makers, marketers, etc.Google Plus Account Suspended

It is not a place for socializing, or the first huge wave of millions of people were not thinking it was a better place to talk to their family and friends than Facebook.

It was internet marketers who were on that wave, people who have a reason to join yet another social media site after Facebook, You Tube, Twitter, and all of those other obsolete social media sites like MySpace.

Google Plus Will Suspend Your Account

The problem with this new and growing site is the terms and conditions. They can and will suspend your account for any reason, and they don’t even have to give you a reason.

The customer service is non-existent, it doesn’t matter if you worked on it for years, it doesn’t matter if you have friends and family and contacts, thousands of friends, followers, pages, groups, hangouts, whatever.

They don’t care, and will suspend your account in a second. I have never had a Facebook account suspended, and I briefly had a few Twitter accounts suspended, but they gave them back to me, after a bit of complaining.

Google Plus is the riskiest attempt at trying to market through social media that I can think of, only due to the fact that they have a policy that can throw people out for “hate speech” and things like that.

They have a list of sites which you can’t post. Those being anything related to the sale of alcohol, firearms, tobacco, gambling, and anything that “mimics” the effect of legal or illegal drugs.

You can’t post anything seen as being pornographic, basically anything that’s any fun at all. You post it, they suspend you, that’s it, no comeback, just gone.

This is the reason why I would not recommend anyone at all ever using the site for any reason.

Google Plus account suspended? One of millions to come, and you know why now, it’s a useless, hypocritical, impossible site to be a part of, where nobody can have any fun ever, or even talk about having fun, try to promote their site, or bang you’re gone, Google Plus account suspended.

I got another Google Plus account, which isn’t suspended, but I’m hesitant to even post this blog post on it, in fact, I definitely won’t.
