    Do you think being a member of Google + helps your blog rank better in Google searches?

    The only benefit that could perhaps be reasonable to assume is that by being a member of Google (profile) your hubs are indexed quicker.

    Google has been quite open about what Google+ does for SERPs. It says that it will improve the rank for any of your friends who search on a term, so if you search on "widgets" and +1 a page, then one of your Google friends search on it, they are more likely to see your +1 page.

    They don't provide data on exactly how much influence it has, only that they say it a small factor as it is new.

    There's been some research done that suggests a 20% increase in visibility - google "rankings google +1".

    Also, check out the integration of the Google +1 information in the Google Webmaster tools - it tells you how much effect the +1 button has had for you.

    For any of it to work, of course, someone has to +1 you.

    *Probably* just as much as it would to put your blog on other Google pages (Google groups, Knol, Sites.Google.com, etc)

    I'm not much of an SEO guy but I don't think Google+ has any special edge over others as far as getting traffic.

    Certainly no! However, if you use Google+ for publicity, then it means whole lot of difference smile
