5 of the Best #Usesforwhitespace

With the Google + redesign, came a surprising amount of large white space which lacked content or use for many G+ users. The white space now has become a bit of a cult humour based topic for many geeks (myself included). It has it’s own trending hashtag and has been blogged about by many online sites.

Here I take a look at 5 of the funniest and creative #usesforwhitespace:

Here I take a look at 13 of the best looking Google Plus brand pages:

Finding websites

Google Logo officially released on May 2010

Anyone who works online will undoubtedly have used google at some point. Not everyone is aware of the different features available from google so here’s a quick overview of features that I find most useful for finding appropriate sites to advertise on:

related:  – This feature enables you to search for similar sites. This is ideal if you’re looking to place a widget or skyscraper banner, as you can find sites that will suit your target audience. e.g. related:www.yoursitename.com

~ (synonym) – This feature allows you to search for the keyword and its synonym’s, again this is useful if your searching a particular niche, for example ~car sales also includes van sales i it’s search results.

+ – not related to Google Plus, but this feature allows you to include a specific term, so if you’re searching for a term that must include two things such as salt+and pepper.

From time to time it is also useful to use a few different sources to find appropriate ad sites such as:

 – This site provides a list of top blogs based on any niche you identify, you can search by posts or by blogs.

Bing.com – Although another search engine, results often differ to that of Google, so you may find some decent sites that Google hasn’t referred you to.
