Post in profiles & pages are confirmed but what about "comments" ?
Simply logout and visit the page with comments. If it's visible, it should be indexed.
Comments are visible if the update they are attached to was set to "public"
I remember an article - may be one year old - where the author claimed that simple sharing links (via +1-button) were NOT indexed.
He talked about sharing links, not about the "plussing", as fas as I remember.
I don't hink it has ever changed: that all depends on the update itself. If you keep "public" unselected and only select your circles, the update is going to be private.
The only BUT is that some friends may re-share it to their pages and may choose to make it public (though they will be prompted that you probably didn't want to)...
@Ann, I remember it being default for me. So maybe they changed it ? They're always tweaking.
Not sure! I may need to register a new account with G+ to make sure but what makes you think the default has changed?
