    Searching on the web i can't find any SEO expert talking about the influence of the G+ votes for the SEO of a websites, nothing who at less than 2-3 years.

    G+ vote are still working for SEO?

    G vote, This button definitely help in getting the attention of the reader / visitors. As like other social networks G+ is also useful and active network, which drives good organic traffic through shares, likes etc.

    G+ is a Google product. So I think if you connect with Google+, google will crawl its accounts at first. From this basis, SEO is good for your site.

    Good for indexing and drive traffic. I doubt it has SEO effect.

    Ok, i know that can drive interesting traffic from profiles but i'm talking more about G+ votes on a website and not about the G+ social, since i've removed the g+ button from my website i was wondering if it's a good move to re add it

    Yes it is working. People talk about Social signals and Google+1 is the main component of Social signals. Hope you get my points here.

    G+ is still good for driving traffic but not much effective which is in past.

    Bought G+ shares may index, and make traffic/links look more natural... but that's it. Organic button clicks index as well, but also have some positive SEO effects that Google just won't give the fake crap. Then again, by the time you have real organic traffic and real people clicking your buttons you probably are moving in the right direction anyway. So its a bit of the chicken and the egg.

    Google+1's and Google+ shares are one of the top ten factors when considering local seo.

    The Google places box where local companies rank, counts the Google+ shares, +1's and followers in my experience.
