Welcome to our second Friday of the month of June! Come join us today at The Ultimate Party on Google+ and help us spread the word and share a post. Thank you! The hashtag to use for our weekly party is #theultimateparty A few months ago, on a cold Friday morning, we hosted our first The Ultimate Party on Google Plus; Our goal was/remains to get G+ Bloggers and others on Google+ to connect, share interests, and grow. So join the party!
Every week, our G+ Circle expands as we add more new members to the group. Currently, we have 200+ members and, with your support, we will continue to grow. If you want to connect with savvy social media gurus, grow your fan base and be seen, Google+ is key to your engagement; it's the place to be for hangouts, parties and networking events. Join us today. It is never too late to participate and share a few posts.
There is also a very important fact to remember about a Google+ party: Every time someone +1's, comments, or shares your post, Google ranks that post higher.

Share 2-3 family-friendly posts and any information that would be helpful to other bloggers. Remember to support others at the party by re-sharing, liking/commenting on other submitted posts.
Why did we choose Friday? We chose Fridays because studies have shown superior interaction on Google+ on Fridays from 11 a.m. - 2 pm and from 7-10 p.m. We pledge to work hard to interact with posts that link up with the hashtag #theultimateparty on Friday.
Even though the linky below closes at 6:00 p.m EST, feel free to come back and comment and +1 on the posts until 9:00 pm. Please link up if you are going to party with us. We'll also create a Google+ circle based off of the link-up; so if you want to gain more followers, linking up is crucial. We also have a Google+ page called The Ultimate Party where you can receive updates and share in the threads posted on that page if you circle us!
What Is a G+ Party? A G+ Party is a networking event to meet,connect with people and exchange +1s, and share G+ posts. G+ parties have one or more Hosts who organize and promote the party. Co-Hosts are often brought in to help.
Why do we hold a G+ party and on Fridays?
- G+ postings help with SEO optimization.
- It helps our posts get higher ranking in Google's search engine.
- Friday is supposed to be the best time for interaction on G+, specifically between 11a.m. - 2 p.m. and 7 - 10 p.m. We now leave the party open until 9 p.m. for our offline workers and West Coast bloggers. One or more of us will hang out with you in the evening as many of your hosts live in the EST/CST time zones and might not be available at that time. Please link up as early as possible so that you get the most interaction on your posts.
- Joining and Sharing Our G+ Circle will help you gain more followers on G+. (We'll have a G+ circle that we share every week for those who link up.)
- Join the party to interact with and get to know other bloggers. Typically, at most online parties you follow people and never interact. Here you get to see who has the same interests/niche as you do!
