    I have a new website so naturally it is not coming up on the first page of Google for major keyword searches. If I set up a Google+ page am I likely to have this rank quite quickly - how long would it take to be listed for major keyword in the suburb that we are based.

    Love some help on this please....

    So are you doing a hyper-local site targeted at one neighborhood?

    If you make the Google+ page properly then the Google+ page might rank well but it won't do much for your website's rankings. Ranking a hyper local site for keywords that include the name of the neighborhood in question is extremely easy. Just hire somebody who knows what they're doing to build some strong, relevant backlinks for you and target those kinds of keywords.

    But either way you should still have the Google+ page, especially for a local site.

    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.

    You'll probably need more than a Google + link to get your site ranked where you want it to be ranked. In addition to that you want to do proper onsite SEO as it is not as easy as just tossing up a handful of links on a 4 page Drupal site and BOOM, page 1 Google.

    Not dismissing you so please do not feel offended, just making a point.

    Sorry, I was not clear on the question I am asking.
    I want to know how long it would take for a google+ page to rank on the first page of Google for the suburb that they are located in.
    I know we need seo for the web.site to rank, was just hoping that Google+ page would rank quicker so atleast we can start getting some traffic from the net

    No one will be able to tell you exactly how long. It all depends on your niche and competition.

    Thanks for the replies.
    Am I wrong in thinking that a google+ link will rank quicker than a web page? You know how Google lists companies with their reviews and stars...

    I believe I get your question - you want to build a Google+ or Google Local profile for a local business & know if it will rank (possibly spot 1?)
    That's DEFINITELY possible since you add your location details & Google places you in the localized results easily, however ranking as #1 for your given location or market (ie: Maryland Electricians) you'll get there with many Google+/Local Reviews (4-5 stars obviously)
    Hope that answers your question. For extra relevance you should link your site to the page too. More of your existing profiles/sites showing up + ranking for keyword = traffic.
