    For those of you that want to get ahead on Google+ and start building your profiles, here's a good method of expanding your circle.

    Go to youtube and find videos like this one (appears to be the most popular at the moment).
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9ADtqqTS-Q

    This is basically where people can comment on the video with their email and hope someone with a G+ account invites them (you can probably see where this is going already).

    Scrape the comments either manually or using a comment scraper, and pay someone at fiverr to filter through them and extract all the emails. Some will simply leave a username like "bob192" so you need to append "@gmail.com" to the end of these.

    Now you can import these email addresses to gmail, yahoo or hotmail and then create a Google+ account and then import them from the email provider to G+. You can also email these people with whatever you want such as CPA offers, clickbank products etc.

    One idea which just popped into my head is creating a Google+ looking website saying they need to verify their account as there has been suspicious activity (by completing a CPA offer of course). Most people should fall for this as none of these people will be familiar with the Google+ layout and people are going crazy over invites.
    If you want to be a right bastard, you can even use mobile offers and tell them to text a premium number to get their verification code.

    Enjoy.

    PS: In the video I mentioned above, the poster says to remove your email once you've got an invite but 8/10 people don't.

    What? Phishing Google +1 site? That's a serious blackhat just to expand Google+ Circle. Don't sound like social anymore.:D

    It's not phishing because your not taking their email address or password. Your using a content locker and when they complete a survey you just redirect them to a sign up link. Your just adopting a Google+ look - people do this all the time on facebook by using facebook skins for their content locker and even iframing facebook pages in the background.

    What kind of scraper would you use to collect the emails in the comments?
