    For Google+ – even though it never took off as a popular Social Media platform for Google, it is still a good idea to post there for SEO. Google is the top Search Engine and they do factor in Google+ posts in to their algorithms for searches.

    Periscope is a great tool, but I have found that you won’t gain much traction unless you are scoping frequently. Once per day is ideal. You also need to watching other scopes and giving “hearts” and sharing others scopes with your following.
