Why participate in Google Circles?
Adding people to your Google Circles and other people adding you to their circles is something which should be done because it continues adding significant value to the articles and blog posts you are already writing, including posts on your website and in forums.
How does it add value to me? The more people that have added you to their circles, the more weight everything you write carries. Think of it as being an author. Each person that adds you to their circles says you are credible. This increases the weight and value Google assigns to you as an author and what you publish. The more weight Google applies to you as an author, the higher your rankings will be for what you publish. Google has stated that it will continue providing results from sources with the highest credibility.
How can I participate in Google Circles?
Establish a G-mail account. If you have a G-Mail account, you have a Google plus option in the far left of the top menu bar you see while reviewing E-Mail. Google plus is a forum where you can post any thoughts, articles of interest you have seen, and more. A main option is to add people to your Google circles or for other people to add you to their circles. Add people organically. As you come across them through your regular work, you can add them and they can choose to add you. If you comment on their work or their google plus posts, they may add you. If you have a rapport established with someone already, you can ask them to add you to their circles and you can reciprocate. You can also contact friends and add each other to your circles.
As you obtain more credibility, you will notice that many of the articles and blogs you write will rank significantly higher. They will be read and approved of by some in your circles. The ranking of your publications is also boosted by those whose circles you are in that click
