I was reluctant to have a Google +1 account because I already have FB but wondered if anyone here can share their experiences. Does it help your traffic to have one?
Wish i knew how it works. Still not clear to me so i haven't used it yet.
I joined it but unfortunately found it was way beyond my level of technical understanding - it's not exactly user friendly, is it? - so have never signed in since. That was a few months back and I keep getting e-mails saying that someone has attempted to connect with me on Google +. I'm ashamed to admit that I simply delete these e-mails and pay no further attention...
I don't use it for promotion but I feel the setup and layout of G+ is far better than FB
I personally don't care for Google Plus. I like the new FB timeline much better. I don't think Google Plus has done anything for my traffic but I do add people to my circles and post occasionally.
Google Plus seems so 'alien' - I've go so used to posting to Facebook or Twitter that the whole 'Plus' thing seems fake and forced. I don't like the fact that Google force me to know there is something waiting for me when I am on Google.com.
Interestingly as Google begin to really push my privacy, I am looking more into Bing these days - I wonder if that'll be a general trend, especially after the 'spying' scandal recently.
I don't believe Google Plus has brought me any traffic, and I don't expect it too either!

Anybody else dipping in traffic as of yesterday Oct 14? Apparently, Google made another algorithm change, and my traffic has taken a bit of a plunge because of it. Anyone else experiencing similar results?

Since I finished the apprenticeship, and after umpteen updates and changes made on HP, my traffic has never picked up. I can't remember the last time I saw any more than 40 views a day. My average at the moment is more...

I took a hard line last week and eliminated about 30% of my then-total hubs. These were hubs that were just not performing that well. Since then, I have noticed about 30% more traffic to my other hubs. ...

Looks like Google made another algo change earlier this week. My traffic rose about 25% on my main HP account around this time, so I'm guessing the update was the cause. My traffic is still low by historical...
