Ripples Bookmarklet

// // July 20th 2012 // SEO + Social Media + Technology

Who shared your post and how did it spread on Google+? That’s what Ripples can tell you, allowing you to find influencers and evangelists.

Google+ Ripples

You can find Ripples in the drop down menu on public posts.

But I noticed that there was also a small URL entry field on the Ripples page.

Google Ripples URL Field

Sure enough you can drop in a URL and see Ripples for any page.

(Interesting how each of my shares of this post are shown separately.)

Ripples Bookmarklet

I didn’t want to go traipsing back and forth to enter URLs, so I created a bookmarklet.

Find Ripples

Drag the link above to your bookmarks bar. Then click the bookmark whenever you want to see Ripples for the page you’re on. [Clarification] This is for non-Google+ URLs only. Ripples for Google+ URLs are only available via the drop-down menu.

So stop wondering and find out who’s sharing your content (or any content) on Google+.

    This is a really cool tool. Thanks for sharing AJ! Do you know of similar tools that allow you to see who shares a specific URL on any network?

    Thanks for creating this bookmarklet, I have just added this to my bookmark list, finding influencers on the web has now become easy with tools like this and some other e.g. etc.

    This is def pretty cool to be able to look at your reach visually in this manner. Super cool AJ.

    It’s nice that Google is still trying to find a niche for GPlus in an already saturated market. I have an account but I never quite get around to doing anything with it. This (Ripples) doesn’t seem worth making the effort.

  8. Dallas McMillan // October 05th 2012

    This is awesome – make the effort for sure – very neat tool
