I've got 1413 backlinks from Google . Is this Good or Bad?

 6:11 am on May 7, 2014 (gmt 0)

When I publish a news in my site, I do share the news in my Google+ account and Google+ Page account. 3 months ago, I noticed in the Google Webmaster Tools "Links to Your Site" section, that I got a total of 1413 backlinks from plus.google.com

All 1413 backlinks came from only 18 URL's that I shared on Google+. All of the backlinks are still listed in my GWT account.

Is this Good or Bad?

A high value link to your site from another site is a link that recommends your site to the visitors of the other site because your site has useful information or content that they want to share with their visitors.

Links you create on social sites are not high value links. If that were the case, all you would need to do to rank at the top is to spend some time adding your links around the net. Whoever manages to litter up the net more than the next site would be at the top.

A few good, honest inbound links can make a bigger difference than thousands of low value links.

But can that number of links be actively harmful? Or just no effect one way or the other?

It would be pretty funny if google+ were viewed as a nasty spammy site whose links did more harm than good, but let's hope it hasn't come to that.

There was some Google news regarding links posted May 6: [webmasterworld.com...]
Maybe the video has more info.

Only links from the +1 sections of profiles are dofollow now, so it shouldn't affect anything positively or negatively, except maybe personalized results.
