    Hello BHW friends, I am thinking of increasing my Google+ community to improve the SEO of one of my projects but not sure if it is useful or not.

    What is your experience?

    Anything owned by Google will be helpful to get better rankings on Google.
    The number of +1 alone could make a difference in rankings.

    Google Plus integration is great for websites. +1 is also good but don't rely on social signals too much, they can pump rankings but you need strong backlinks for long-term.

    It is useful, if you use the right keywords.

    PROFILS booster will rank you but not your website.
    The website only receives the flow of traffic only

    Oh, thank you guys.

    I was using Google+ but I didn`t get good results from organic traffic etc... As a result of this, I had some questions about if Google+ was good for SEO or not.

    I'll try to promote my community and my website with Google+

    G+ profiles does help specially if you have a lot of followers. Helps with the traffic too as you may have presumed.

    A good G+ profile shows that you are an authority and that's what SEO is about nowadays.

    It definitely is, most people disregard it because it doesn't have instant results like when you share on fb and you get visitors, but it will help in more subtle ways like better rankings in time, just keep building +1s.

    Without a doubt. Always go the extra mile when it comes to optimizing your Google properties (G+, YT etc). If you have a Social Media calendar, add the posts to your G+!!

    Sharing your website across multiple Google + accounts is an extremely quick way to get a website crawled & indexed ;).
