    Heh, I typed in google.com my main keyword of my nich site for reason I allready forgot and for my surprise in 8th spot it shows one of my sites G+ accounts posts. It`s funny because:
    1) My site is nowhere to be found on google
    2) It has only like 8 posts
    3) G+ account has just one or two posts and has zero friends
    4) The post it shows is just saying that I changed logo and thats it.

    Conclusion: seems nasty google is becoming highly biased towards their little G+ .... I smell something to exploit there huh. What do you think? Screenshot below...

    It's nowhere near the end. Though you won't see normal people using Google+, but you can find all the nerds and geeks who still use these facility. It's not just a Google+ profile, it offers more than social networking.

    It's kind of near the end of it's life. They're breaking it up and rebranding it. I agree they want a piece of the social media pie, but they'll never be cool with a billion less users than Facebook.

    As far as the search results - were you signed into a Google account when you were doing the search? Sometimes that can happen because of personalization.

    Are you sure that Google custom signed-in search setting is off (sorry, I don't remember the exact name of it). I know Google displays some results such as your Google+ profile if you search a keyword relating to something you posted when you're signed-in, but only you can see the result.

    Well, back in 2012 I have had an website which was targeting very popular niche and had 12000 Exact match searches, I was shocked to see the same thing at that time that My G+ account was on top 10. It was for few days but the result became as saved in cookies/cache. I just checked it today and found It is still on top 10 for my default browser. However, if i private browsing that keyword I have finding it nowhere. So You should check result with private browser and have a look on whether it is still in top 10 or not.

    yep, i admire you. if we signed in on Google then our G+ results were shown for some of the keyword. even our web page will be on the top 5 results.
