    Google has its bias to its own products. They are giving weightage to g+ and google authorship. If you are able to do it well, it can be big boost to your rankings. We do offer professional g+ and google authorship setup to our clients. It has significantly boosted the rankings

          I created a Google+ page once from my account with the keyword and domain name I wanted ranking for and the Google + page came up on the first page of google in just a few days so I would have a tendency to say yes it does help with SEO. You just have to know how to use it the right way and make sure you read all of their rules and regulations.

    All the top social media sites are great, but google has a preference for its own network (obviously). It'd be silly to ignore twitter and facebook though.

    Well, No one can prove yet Google+ is better than others or better for SEO. Google+ is just a social media network like as other networks and it is a part of Search engine optimization.

    Yes, it is good for SEO, but not best. It drives traffic like others.

    Yes Google+ is for seo and put a big impact on seo. Google provede preference to it. And
    Google has been using Google+ to discover new content.

    Unlike Facebook, which hides data from Google, or Twitter, which directs Google not to follow most of its links, Google+ data is immediately and fully accessible to the company that built it.

    Following great people, commenting on posts, and sharing great content on g+ helps to increase your influence. Google+ pages, profiles, and communities have Page Rank. Thus not only getting lots of +1 shares helps you, but getting some from high-authority Google+ users helps even more.

      • Google + is great for SEO because it's a layer to google, not just another social media platform. Everything you post is indexed and searchable including your profile, and content within communities.

        Sharing keyword relevant content is a great way to drive traffic to your site and boost your seo. And make sure you set up your google authorship (I've got a free video on this if anyone needs help setting this up).

    Google places heavy emphasis on authorship and social signals now, especially for content published on Google+. So having an active Google+ page/profile with links back to your main site is likely to help your site SEO, since these Google+ pages are regularly indexed. Just be sure you're posting highest quality content on the pages/comments and not just seconding someone else opinion. Adding meaningful posts and comments will build your own credibility as a niche expert in the Google+ community and ensure you are added to more circles.

        Google+ is the shizzle when it comes to SEO. I'm surprised I don't see a lot more people talking about it. It's responsible for a extra 800+ searches to my website alone. Listen, the best way to utilize is to complete your "about me" section, add all your websites and social networks to it, then you can add a link back from your website to your google+ profile. It does help the more links you send back to your google+ profile. But, the best way I've found is to use keywords in your status itself, don't overdue - just make it look natural, but it does pick up in the regular search, big time

      Google+ is the best if you can gather traction. Use G+ authorship. It's important to not that G+ Links are rel=follow links unlike almost all of the other SM platforms. Links in the txt of your posted comments are no follow but the ones in the link generated box below are followed so be sure to point readers to click on those links.

      tumblr is another one that offers rel=follow links too so this should be taken into consideration.

    Okay, everyone relax and read this:
    Study Shows No Clear Evidence That Google+ Drives Ranking

    If you're using Google+ primarily for SEO then you are using it wrong.

    Here is how I would sum it up:

    Google+ shares do drive discovery of content.
    Google+ shares appear to drive indexing of content, but there is some possibility of error if the pages received links we are not aware of.
    There is no material evidence of Google+ shares driving ranking.

    The google plus community could be helpful for getting targeted visitors, but nothing more than that because they're are now Nofollow. So, expecting something from backlinks view isn't worth. Though it is powered by Google, you never know anything can possible.

    Well, yes it is. With G+ around it's easier to build google authorship which is pretty important when you want to rank well in your SERP. You can do this by connecting all your blogs to your account and even your other social media profiles. Facebook may work well in generating leads through their ads but when it comes page rank, G+ is king. It may sound bias but that's how I see it.

    I much prefer Google+ for marketing purposes rather than SEO purposes. Google+ isn't the best for promoting your website or service, certainly not as good as Facebook or Twitter. It can be useful though, and you can reach out to lots of people in a certain area because of the circles system. Although its not the best marketing platform, I still think it's important for marketers to have social media accounts on as many sites as possible.

    Imparting things on Google+ and urging others to +1 your content works basically the same path as Facebook "likes", however the effect is more affirmed in light of the fact that Google Search favors locales that have appropriated more social trustworthiness from others. In spite of the fact that Facebook and Twitter are key to promoting deliberations, both block Google from gaining entrance to much of their information, which constrains their SEO effectiveness.

    Google+ content is treated by Google much the same as any possible page on the web and stays around, gets page rank, provides page rank and shows up in indexed lists over a long period. Links from normal sites to Google+ content can additionally pass page rank authority in the other heading over to your Google Plus posts as well as pages. The utilization of hash tags in Google Plus unites each post to a search on the platform.
