      You are most welcome 🙂

  12. Hi Nirmala,

    I agree with all of your points but doubt if Google+ will have any added SEO benefit over other networks. We are telling it everywhere and the reason behind must be because Google is offering this service. But in my opinion, Google knows it very well how the links in Google+ will be exploited and I don’t think they’ll incline to offer unfair advantage. There shouldn’t be any difference than any other networks, because, after all Google search engine must produce the most relevant results for user queries rather than how many links are there in Google+

    1. Yeah, agree with your views Suresh

      While seeing the blog post in searches, it is linked with Google Plus profile as the authorship is claimed with it.

      So in default, it is related to SEO.

      I hope that Google Plus have SEO benefits and helps to get good SERP
