Getting Started With Google+ for iPhone

Apple has finally approved the eagerly awaited Google+ app for iPhone. While it’s definitely better than using the mobile web interface, the app has attracted much criticism from the social network’s users.

The application has been a little buggy from the start, tending to stall a little before really getting going. That being said, Google+ will certainly grow to be a much better application with all the user feedback. Besides, this is the first version of what could turn out to be the next...

Most expensive AdWords categories

If you’ve ever worked with Google AdWords, you’ll know that some keywords are incredibly expensive. I’ve found it fascinating discovering that some areas such as credit, insurance and property can have cost per clicks of tens of dollars, if not hundreds.

Facebook vs Google+ [infographic]

There’s been a lot of talk about Facebook and Google+ over the past few weeks since Google+ was launched. A lot of people think Google+ will gain more traction than Facebook, but on the flip side, a lot of people don’t think Google+ has a chance.

I’m on the fence and right now I think that it’s going to take Google+ a hell of a lot of work to become anything like Facebook. Facebook has 750 million users, that’s a huge number of people and although Google’s audience...

How to import your Facebook friends into Google+

I remember when LinkedIn added functionality allowing you to invite your contacts from all over the place. This certainly played a huge role in the success that LinkedIn has gained, as in my opinion, success is determined by engagement on social networks, which boils down to having lots of connected people.

Google+ is no different, the more people and the more interaction, the more success and it would appear that others feel the same way. Mohamed Mansour is a developer who’s created a Chrome...
