    Does Google plus help you gain traffic ?

    I have an account in google plus , I don't use it often. Do you use it often ? is it helping you increase traffic to your hubs ?

    Yes, absolutely. I wrote a Hub discussing some of the benefits of Google+ just the other day. The Ripples feature is great for figuring out who's shared your Hubs and who to target future marketing efforts towards. It's very easy to network with others, too, and having Google+ back links is a very valuable tool in boosting your search engine ranks. They have a lot of credibility, obviously.

    Yes, I use Google+ extensively (it's my main social network) and particpate in the communities there. I post relevant links to hub pages together with context in the groups and Google+ currently drives around half the traffic to my hubs.

    I recommend getting involved in the new communities features and joining some like minded circles. It doesn't take long to build a presence, I've been actively posting there for 2-3 months and have around 4,000 followers.

    Feel free to follow me on Google+ if you would like:

      if you are getting quality traffics from your hubs why is your hub score 0 ?

      I've only just joined HP and have published lots of hubs, I understand that reduces the score. My hubs themselves are rating between 65 and 75 at present.

    It's an obvious choice, but it has a long way to go to overcome the momentum of FB and others. Look at the share buttons on most sites and you'll see that almost always G+ is dead last in the counts.

      But as Lana said we might get good quality back links, what do you think ?
