Google + Has Made It Official
Last Update: Feb 4, 2019
A week ago, I shared a post from Jay about how to get your website rank in search engines. One of the strategies is how to post in Google Plus. My post has earned engagement from the FB group I shared the post. One of the comments was, "Google Plus strategy is a waste of time."
According to the commenter, Google plus is shutting down in April. I know it is shutting down before the end of this year but not this early. Maybe it is only me who was not informed, so I just replied that just skip the Google plus thing.
Just last Friday, I received email from Google + team that Google Plus is officially closing this April. This just proved that the comment I received is true. I assumed most of you has received the same notice from Google.
See below email.
I am having a second thought if I should share this notice or not, but I decided to just to inform those who are not well-informed. We all know that Google Plus is included in the trainings here in Wealthy Affiliate.
My main reason of sharing this information is to request to everybody who posted or created trainings which included the Google + to update their trainings (including the online certification) so as not to confuse our new members and waste their time.
Did you receive the same email I received?
Yes I think anyone with a Google+ account did get the email.
Have a great day
Yes, good idea. I will update my blog posts on the subject too.

I did and I havent used G+ for months, knowing it was going.
Thanks Dave. I just hope the trainings with Google + will be updated.
Just my take on this, but if its going away how can it be updated : )
I focus on YouTube, which is a very vibrant and lively source of traffic and Linkedin, but then I have done for years with those anyway, because people buy on those platforms
Like I say, just my take on it, I'm sorry to see G+ Go, because for the time I used it, I liked what I got from it, but it seems people are conditioned by and to use Facebook more, when that is just a social network.
