Does Social Media Affect Your Rankings in Online Search?

Interesting! I believe that you only get a boost from Google+ if your G+ profile is linked to your web page. I’ve been trying for months to get our outside tech person to help me with this, but to no avail. Supposedly, Google+ sent an e-mail to the “site administrator”, but no one has received it!
