Every week she does a Google hangout with a Google employee and sometimes another blogger.
The Google employee has helped her out big time including getting some of her stuff featured at a major Google event a couple of months ago.
This chick told my sister that even though she is relatively small right now things are about to change in the next 6 to 8 months because many of the big players in every industry are not taking advantage of G+ like they should and it is going to massively impact their SEO rankings.
She told my sister that because she is making the most of G+ including doing all those hangouts that within 8 months she will surpass many of the big players and they won't know what hit them.
Just a tip for all you bloggers out there.
