    i have a website in the health niche. i started creating social accounts in facebook, twitter, pinterset and g+. so far i'm seeing good results in the first three but nothing with G+. is it really worth the effort especially for my niche? what do you think?

    If you are planning to rank your site in future then keep monetizing your G+ profiles!
    If you are just planning to get traffic from Social media then you can stop with G+!

    cheers

    same with HoneyHelper

    you should go with pinterest instead for traffic , G+ is pretty worthless for traffic but if you got real followers and really interest in your topic you can get loyal followers there

    Nowadays Google has made it easier for great content to rank high in Google search results when you have a active Google+ page. When people who follow your niche on Google+ search for information that can be found on any of your content, that content gets pushed to the top of search results.

    G+ is abandoned. Google unlinked G+ and YT and doesn't know how to kill it.

    Nah. Just have a profile for one backlink. That's it. Anyway Google itself has announced that it will do away with Google Plus shortly. Cheers :)

    From a technical point of view I don't think g+ Will last - I just think they have their fingers in way too many pies now.
    but from an SEO viewpoint I guess as long as g+ is here you may as well try to build your account.

    Yes, of course Google plus is soon emerging to be one of the leaders in social media sector. Businesses and professionals are increasingly moving towards Google Plus to get more eyeballs for their businesses. So, Google Plus looks like a good proposition.

    Google will tend to favour sites linked on G+ over every other social media. While it may not be helpful for growing an audience, it's pretty necessary to keep it semi-updated for ranking purposes

    We are getting traffic and +1's from Google+. I think it all depends on the business you want to promote.

    Health niche should be quite decent on G+, just keep at it, it definitely helps and if you grow your account nicely it will be worth your while.

    Use Hootsuite to automate posts from your other social networks to aggregate with Google+. Build your website brand by establishing a UPS box somewhere and a Google Voice number. Set these up in a Google Business account attached to the Google+ and mark yourself as a dominant authority figure in your sub-niche. Once your site gets to #1 in rankings for your search term, the Google profile will be up there as well.

    If you have no plan of action for growing, what is the point? Scale or bail, bro.

    Google + is still worth it for ranking site since google will love that since they made it
    another reason is gplus is like getting a vote for your website. so the more gplus you have the more google will think that your getting popular to
    visitors.

    Google+ doesn't really have the large followings that Facebook, Twitter, etc. all have. You may find it is a waste of your time to invest in Google+; I personally would not
