Having recently started to watch and even participate in a number of Google+ Hangouts On Air on the subject of digital marketing, SEO and PPC, I thought I’d put together a list of all of them, in chronological order of when they’re aired (i.e. Monday to Sunday).
What are they? For those who aren’t familiar with them, they’re like webinars that are limited to up to 10 participants (although more people can watch the live feed from afar), which often take the form of a Q&A or discussion of a topic – anything from something SEO-related to consulting, branding, social media, marketing in general and all sorts of other topics.
Some of them don’t have a dedicated site or page all about the events (as each event tends to have its own URL, which would be a nightmare to attempt to maintain here), so your best bet is to try the Google+ hashtag, which I’ve included with each one (when/where there is a hashtag associated with it). Failing that, try checking the host’s Google+ page.
Got one to add? Tweet me or contact me and I’ll add it to the list. The main criteria is that it must be regular to some extent (i.e. weekly, monthly, etc. – so long as it’s not just a random one-off).

Kudos to @paulgailey for a timezone tool suggestion (which unfortunately I wasn’t able to use in the end) and to @Tony_DWM, @barriemoran and @Ammon_Johns for suggestions on where to find possible G+ HOAs to add to the list.
