  Post Quality Mechanics
Model Post Example
Post Title - Descriptive and Relevant to your Followers
At least 50 characters of text in your post body. Ideally including a relevant link to either add value to your followers' experience on your G+ Page, or a link to your site (unless, of course, you'd prefer not to use social signals to improve your SERP rank.) #RelevantHashtag     +JohnDoe

The above example will earn a passing 'Perfect Post' since it contains #Hashtags,+PlusMentions, and is sufficient Length, though mechanics are only part of the overal Post Grade below; post engagement is also important!

Why Should I Care About Any of This?
Across all posts in our system, a post failing all tests typically sees significantly fewer signals (that is +1s, comments, and shares combined) per post. A post passing all tests (Perfect Post) typically sees significantly more signals per post. But don't take our word for it, check out some live data:
