    It can be a good way to drive traffic. But for ranking in google it makes no difference.

    Google +1's influence rankings significantly, especially in less competitive niches.

    Just by sharing could give you a boost, but it's more of a means to generating traffic unless it gets spread by multiple others.

    For traffic and authority of your website Google+ is good. Not much for ranking.

    I've heard Google+ is good for helping out with SEO, but I have no idea if that's true.

    If we knew, we'd be billionaires over night.

    I don't think many people even use G+ o_O But worth looking into. Thanks for the food.

    G plus is a white-hat SEO tool, but mostly used for generating traffic.

    Reading this thread is like watching a coin flip... Anyone have sources on this? I always thought it was just another social signal like FB...

    G+ is really a good place to share the content and it also helps to build good traffic for your website.

    There are no cons, thats for sure. The rest is speculation.

    So far I haven't found any website that ranked well due to shares on Google+.
    If you need a SEO boost try Reddit instead.

    Agreed. G+ is just like any other social media platforms. It only brings you traffic and building brands.

    It's owned by Google - that should answer every aspect of your question. All 5 of my sites have their articles posted on G+ before I do anything else. It may not be a popular social network but it will always be a powerful one...

    Google plus brings more traffic if you participate in niche communities. However, I don't see any difference on my SEO campaigns.
