    Okay, so does anyone have any idea how these random people are adding thousands of Google+ followers every day? There are days where they add 10,000 and days where they drop hundreds of thousands or more. There's obviously more to it than "share good content and interact with the community". These guys are using some sort of strategy or getting help with a tool. You can't circle or +1 people as a "brand". Does anyone know how this is being done?

    If you look at the socialstatistics site and search for "Free People" or "Felicia Day" or "Thomas Hawk". These are random people with 1, 2 or 3 million +1's who really aren't doing anything "amazing" day-to-day. Free People is even a brand, but their site has mostly 0 +1's on all their product pages, so they're definitely getting help elsewhere, too.

    It makes no sense. Some of these companies or individuals don't actually get the same amount of traffic as they do +1s every day.

    Ive been using g+ since day one, what happened was, alot of these folks used Empire Avenue and linked together making missions to share and +1 each other, then they started sharing each other in circles and then google added them to the suggested users for whenever people sign up. And there ya go. now ya know.

    So once you get enough +1's Google helps you "Take off" by adding you to Suggested Users? Interesting.

    What is Empire Avenue?

    It has search value for a web-based company.
