Google Says No-
Google says no-Today I am sharing why google says no and also announcing the giveaway winner for the Spring has Sprung Giveaway. I know I don’t usually post on Wednesday because the hop starts this evening. But, every month I have a giveaway here at Katherines Corner and sometimes I also have the privilege of being part of a group giveaway. Those of you who enter my giveaways may have noticed that I do not have the follow me on google plus entry option. That is because Google Plus says NO! No to giveaways.
You can find the exact details HERE on the google plus policy section. But in a nutshell it means- “Publishers ( that would be bloggers etc.) may not promote prizes, monies, or monetary equivalents in exchange for Google+ button clicks.”
I would love for you to add me to your google plus circles ( you can click on my google icon on my right sidebar). But I will never ask you to follow me via google for a giveaway entry. Being blacklisted by google is NOT something anyone wants. Especially those of us who work so hard to keep our blogs visible. So just a gentle nudge my sweet bloggy friends to rethink your giveaway setup plans.
As long as I’m on the subject of giveaways I always welcome your participation in the group giveaways. You can find out how to join in the fun and be part of one of my upcoming giveaways by visiting my Advertising page. 🙂
Please join me in congratulating the winner of the Spring has Sprung Giveaway. Big congratulations to Anna P of the blog This Thing Called Life!
