I want to know Is Google Plus helpful to getting traffic?
Google plus definitely affecting rankings though extremely hard to deceive
even my legit +1s are not getting counted lol
Not unless you combine it with posting and building circles
If you do your work just with google plus to gain traffic it is not so helpful, it need hard work but it is legit one and can help. Good luck!!
Not on its own. Combine with other methods mentioned above.
It will make your website rank higher when your Google contacts search for your keywords.
It won't really have any effect on random people searching for your keywords.
You can verify this by searching for something, seeing a "So and so recommends this site!" and then logging out of your Google account and searching again. The recommended site will no longer be on page 1.
I think it depends on how many people you have in your circle.
It's also good for rankings as far as i know.
if google finds that your +1s are from 1 ip then it does not show any improvement in the ranking...
rather you can even recieve google penality..
Imo, G+ isn't really that popular compared to Facebook and Twitter. I'd rather spam the links around there tbh.
Not in my experience so far...
But it's one of the growing factors that need to be considered with another social signals now. Social proof will become increasingly important over the next year or two, as part of stable ranking increases.
Better to start off slow and steady now on your important assets...
With the recent SPYW ( search plus your world) changes the big g has made the only major benefit I can see from having a g+ account would be for a vanity search.
Now I am sure a few of you have just gone "aahhhhh" and now have $$$ signs in your eyes.
Enjoy this golden nugget of information.
It does help most of the SEO'ers have been saying that +1's are closely related to page ranking. Try getting them legitimately though
Google plus one doesnt bring traffic to your site.
Rather i could tell it might help you a bit with your SERP.
Google Plus whether gives much help or not but we need to incorporate it in our SEO efforts because this is future proof and at some point this will (may) begin to show some real effects. For now it does help but not that much.
