    Wow. Haven't read through the whole thing but google + are the most important ranking factor at the moment ? Keyword in title is not important neither is keyword in URL ?

    Thanks for the share man but take the info with a pinch of salt.

    So Google wants us to spam links on their struggling social network? Great thinking Matt...

    This is the big problem with these correlation studies:

    Correlation studies do not reflect how the algorithm is behaving. Correlation studies reflect how SEOs are behaving.

    Just because +1s have such a high correlation, doesn't mean that's what's making the sites rank. It just means that the people who are working on the site deem it necessary to rank.

    Maybe it does, maybe it doesn't (I'm firmly in the court that it doesn't long term), but correlation studies are in no way an accurate representation of how an algorithm works. The most purchase you can get out of a study like this is that is what most SEOs are focused on.

    I dont really know about this... if this was true,my websites which have social signals would rank a lot better. as far as I know, this is a bunch of bs. What really ranks your site is high quality/pr follow links.

    Sure, all the other stuff matters.. but i wouldn't let this confuse fellow BHW members. This is far from being the truth at this current point.

    Wait, so Google +1s and Facebook Shares are more important than do-follow backlinks? I beg to differ, I mean I'm sure they're important, but I think that backlinks are and will be for the next little while, the most important factor when ranking websites.

    I could be wrong though, maybe it's time for a test of just Facebook Shares and Google +1s :)

    Imo google+ wants to get more active people/shares after its fail. So why not doing it? :) that's just my thoughs.

    Go home google, you are drunk.

    I believe those are the changes from last year, not what's more powerful right now. So Google +1's had the biggest change from last year.
