    If 0.04% of web content is indexed by google where is the rest of it?

    Is that stuff without any links to it or what? If so it's not really on the net is it?

    Indeed , SO am I... There is no such thing like if you are ranking on Google then G+ is the most valuable Social source... FB analytics are far from superior when it comes to SEO...

    What say ATY?

    #9 - With them implementing the mobile checker and weighing heavy on whether or not your site is mobile, I wouldn't think anything less.
    #12 - In my experience, pages with videos did index a little faster. Not sure on how t related to their position in the serps, too many variables to consider.
    #20 - Yep, agreed. Content is king, as always.
    #25 - This is debatable. I will say that I have seen really good results with indexing and pushing links up with +1's and statuses on G+.

    #9 - Yep.
    #12 - Probably due to more time spent on page and good overall user signals.
    #20 - Amen.
    #25 - In my experience, Twitter is a close second when it comes to social signals but I think it has fallen off recently. No facts or proof on this just something that I've noticed for my website.

    Really? I've seen the exact opposite. Especially over the last 3 months, Twitter has significantly increased my index rates and traffic overall.

    I'm not talking about traffic dude. I get a lot of traffic from there as well (actually most of my social comes from there), but I think that it had more weight as a social signal in the beginning of the year. Again, I might be mistaken about this, but it's just something that I've noticed with my website's blog posts. And as for the indexing rates, I can't really debug that as I have setup new blog posts to be sent to about 20 social media sites and they get indexed in like a few hours.
