Over the past few months, thanks to many of Google’s changes that make it more valuable, many businesses have been finding a home on Google+. In April, Google+ introduced cover photos to their personal and business pages.

I decided to follow up on our 27 Fantastic Facebook Cover Photos blog and search Google+ for the best cover photos around. Many of the same concepts that were seen in Facebook covers are still applicable on Google+ covers: multiple thumbnails, one continuous picture, great graphic design, and fantastic photography. The main difference between the cover photos are the two different styles Google lets you choose from: full and scrapbook. Let’s check out some of the best covers around:

Fantastic Photography

Photography appears to be the front-runner when it comes to Google+ covers. Here are some of the best covers featuring photography:

One Continuous Picture

Teavana and LEGO are both great examples of having a continuous photo across the entire cover. Most businesses on Google+ seem to be opting for continuous pictures using the scrapbook setting.

Great Graphic Design

Sometimes simple works best. Check out what these three pages accomplished with simple, efficient graphic design.

      It seems to be taking a little longer to catch on with some of the bigger businesses, but we’re excited to see all the changes and what people are doing with it!

    My favorite articles are ones that involve web marketing, Muppets and Legos. Seriously, great examples, Holly!
