But they also added interactive menu items and the ability to add hypertext links in the “Bio” section of Google+ Profiles (a great place for keyword-rich links).
Changes like these can happen several times a year as social networks continue to innovate and upgrade their platforms (Facebook is reportedly planning more changes to their Profiles/Pages in the coming weeks as well).
Fixing Your Google+ Cover Photo
- The new Google+ cover photo size is 2120 x 1129 pixels, and it takes up about 95% of the viewable screen area.
- Images need to be higher-resolution – you can’t just stretch low-res images to make them bigger. This will pixelate the image and make it look blurry.
- Don’t jam too much into your cover photo; keep it simple.
- Make sure your logo doesn’t conflict with the cover photo. Your logo needs to stand out and not get lost in the patterns, colors, or textures of the cover photo.

Always monitor your social profiles (on all social networks) to make sure that new features, updates, or changes haven’t affected the way your pages display to visitors. As of last week, Google+ has changed the way your profile looks – so make sure you update your Google+ Profile and Business Page to conform to the new specifications.
