Spice Up Your Google Plus Posts With Style [Infographic]

by Evotive

google plus styling 1950s style



After sharing this infographic on Facebook, we had a couple of emails asking how to they make the formatting changes  of bold, italics, and strike through. They saw the inforgraphic but couldn’t understand it.

Where infographics are relatively new, it makes sense that not everyone is accustomed to reading them. So after sending a few messages with the translation, we decided to post it here.

Below is the infographic created by Simon Heyes

google plus styling guide

To make words BOLD:

When you know which words you’d like to have in bold font type in and asterisk *just before the words you want bold and another asterisk after the last letter of the word you want to have in bold.
example: When you want   *BOLD WORDS*  use the asterisk.


To make words italic 

When you know which words you’d like to have in italic, type in an underscore _ just before the words you want italicized,  and another underscore  after the last letter of the word you want to have italicized.
example:    When you want   _italic words_  use the underscores.


To use a strike through   strikethrough

Some people like to use a strike through, if you’re one who wants to then use a dash – before the word and a dash after the last letter of the word.
example  Watch your spaces if you want   -strikethourgh-   to draw a line through the word

Be careful not to include a space between the  symbol and the letter that you’re styling.
You will need a space between the symbol and the next plain word in your sentence.
Not to worry, you’ll be able to tell immediately if it worked or not.


Happy styling!

P.s.   Please add us to your Google Plus Circles. We’d love to see you there!   http://bit.ly/GooglePlusEvotive

I love infographics. But you now what, Aileen? When I want to post it on my blog with credit to the creator, unless the embed code is provided, it is not easy to copy the image and post it. It always shows up as too small or too big. :D Wonder how to manage that. I suppose a prt scr will work..but that’s too tedious.

Thanks – interesting post!

If you copy the image to a file on your computer and bring that image into your post as you would with any photo (have the post open), before accepting it, select the size you want (thumbnail, large, medium, full size). If you’re not sure, select a size larger than you think. Once it’s in your post, you can reduce it easily by clicking the Edit Image button that appears in the upper left corner of the image when you click on the image. On the Edit Image screen, select the percent that you want to reduce the picture size by.

You can also click the Advanced Settings tab (in the Edit Image screen) and change the size under Advanced Image Settings.

If you make a small picture larger, you’ll lose the sharp resolution so it’s always better to bring the picture in larger than you would like.

Hope that helps!

Paige, you are fabulous! Great instructional guidance – thanks for sharing that. :)


Evotive July 23, 2012 at 12:36 am

Hi Vidya. Paige wrote a great instruction outline. When it’s too big, any photo editor will work to make it smaller. When the creator’s information is too small, but the photo is fine, then it’s an option to give credit just above or below the post.


Cathy Taughinbaugh July 21, 2012 at 3:45 pm

Hi Aileen,

Good information. It’s always nice to know that we can add a little emphasis to our posts on Google+. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Cathy. Wish Facebook had these options. It is nice to be able to make something bold, and shape the emphasis.

Hi Aileen,
I truly don’t know how you keep up with all of this. Thanks for sharing it with us. I appreciate you. xo


Evotive July 23, 2012 at 12:45 am

Hi Tess. Fortunately, it’s nothing you “need” to know. Google Plus works fine without adding any styling to the text. It’s just nice to have the option. Now maybe they’ll add an option for fonts :)
Again, not necessary – just nice.


Fran Sorin July 23, 2012 at 12:11 am


I agree with Tess on this front. I am all thumbs and have a hard enough time keeping up with the ‘regular’ stuff. But what you offer are jewels. When I can grasp one of the concepts, I use them. On other fronts, I think I’m getting ready to source it out.
Thanks for what you always bring to the table Aileen. xxoo-Fran


Evotive July 23, 2012 at 12:48 am

Hi Fran. The good news is that content it is Queen, and everything else is there only to market it and support it. Keep producing great content. because without that, there’s nothing to keep your audience coming back.
Thanks for your comment :)


Betsy at Zen Mama July 26, 2012 at 12:38 pm

Thank you for the good advice. I haven’t spent so much time with google + as I should! Facebook has been the thing I’ve figured out. I’m going to reread this so it sinks in. Thanks Aileen!!

long lasting fake tan July 18, 2014 at 3:54 pm

When you think about the amount of time a person can spend in the gym or in the kitchen preparing food low in calories, you can begin to
appreciate how important it is to ensure that any weight loss product will not take a long
time to actually use it. When applying you need to be careful with the spray direction,
otherwise you can stain surrounding objects. For self-tanning what a person has to do
is to pick up a good product first. After some practice, creating curls
with a flat iron is very fast and easy. With the help of few easy steps, spray tan can be applied
from home. If you got sensitive skin, it’s better
to remove hair a couple of days before to avoid rashes.
It normalises the constitution of the face, makes arms and legs look thinner and longer, and makes dress colours look exceptional.
This ingredient is a common culprit that often causes irritation,
but there are a lot of brands that do not contain this pigment.
Remember to check carefully to make sure the equipments are clean before you start the process.

If you are light skinned or have light hair you may want to consider tinting your eyebrows.

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.
Maybe you could space it out better?
