How to track your Google+ statistics

If you’re wondering how to monitor and track your Google+ statistics with a service from the guy that created Twitter Counter read on…

Social Statistics gives you an option to track your Google+ statistics by simply supplying it with you Google+ profile ID. This is how Social Statistics describe their service:

Google+ Statistics currently tracks and generates detailed statistics for 39,390 users and pulls in hundreds of the most popular posts, every second of the day, from Google+. Add yourself (see sidebar) so we can start tracking your personal Google+ statistics too. You will be able to see how many people added you to their circles, how you grow over time and where you rank in the list of popular Google+ users.

Although still in beta, this tool might be beneficial to you if you want to track your Google+ profile stats. Google+ Statistics is made by Boris Veldhuijzen van Zanten, co-founder of Twitter Counter and The Next Web.

Google+: A Collaborative Document

Google+ A Collaborative Document: (or how 120+ people wrote a book at the same time)

I love how communities come together to share their knowledge and tips & tricks and this Google+ collaborative document is a great example of how groups of people are able to do just that!

This is probably the most comprehensive manual of Google+ tips and tricks that is being crowdsourced through Google Docs. The actual file is quite difficult to access because so many people are attempting to view it and perhaps get a gap at including their own contribution to this book.

If you’d like to contribute to the Google+ collaborative document, you can do so here.
