    Hello,

    I have a very wierd problem, my website has got a lot of google+ around 22k-24k now my question is HOW this happen'd?? I dont't have any google+(the like button) on my page and I dont even have a google+ site/page w/e! Just my website and gmail account with analytics and webmaster tools and yet my site has got 22k-24k google+!

    Can anyone explain me how this happend and can this hurt my site ranking IF this is automated by some bots? And also I don't have any Google+ jackers on site.

    Looks like you're under a negative seo attack

    What type of traffic to you usually get? And the thing that was even more surprising to me was why the hell don't you have a +1 button on your website???

    I agree. It's a new way of neg seo.

    Even if you don't have G+ buttons, people can easily share it on Google + and then +1 that post. Ultimately, it will count as your G+.

    Thats really strange, Check Who shares your link and what type of profile it is..

    Is there any fluctuation in traffic you see OR any SERP movement?

    if it is negative SEO, +1's are linked to your domain and URLs, not content. So if this really is the newest method of negative SEO, it's a damn effective one.

    You are probably being attacked by black seo

    Not sure if its neg seo. It might be a theme or plugin bug. Happened to one of my site too.

    you can check with tools if the g+ likes are fake or not. If it is not fake, be careful. I tlooks like a neg attack

    Its probably a neg seo if your ranking went down.

    I thought that I was the only one who had this kind of situation. I also got around 3K to 22K of insane Google Plus on each pages of my blog. Anyway, it doesn't seem to have any effect because I'm still ranking on my main keyword.

    sorry to hear that, don't think you can erase the +1 as you don't have access to those accounts, this seems to be happening lately, you could try sending a request to google through webmater tools, explain this to them and see what they have to say about it.

    Ive read the thread's, can somebody tell me how do I get rid of this ? Should I write to google.com/contact and kindly ask for removal and explain someone is doing negative seo to me? I have HIGH PR blackhat links on my site.. so If I ask for removal will they likely check the links and then banhammer me? :/
