    Do views from Google+ count?

    I see a lot of different Google traffic sources under traffic sources, but I do not see Google+.  Do views from Google+ count?  Thank you for answering.

    Absolutely! Views from Google + come from the following URL:
       
    plus.url.google.com

    If you look in Google Analytics, you will see visits from that URL, espcecially if you are an active Google + user who posts links to their hubs.

      Hi cebutouristspot,  that is great to know!  Wonderful.  I did not know if it is worth placing links there.

    Definitely! Google plus views are as valuable as Google.com views. The big G likes to see the use of the G+ and pushes more traffic your way.

    Did you know that blogs and websites with the G+ button get a bigger push than those without? If you check your Google scorecard in your Adsense account you will notice that Google  recommends the use of it as a part of its optimizing features.

    They sure do count. G+ is powerful. You get a great many views through it and that is important to what you have posted.

      Hi Gypsy,  thank you for answering.  I am glad to know now, as I really could not tell from my traffic search exactly where it shows up.  Have a great week!
