Is this the main reason why most people join Google+, because they're hoping to use it "for SEO purposes"?
Yes. That's the only reason I do it.
I have a page for every website and my personal profile is linked to my prefesional blog.
I simply paste the news of the sites to the G+ pages via RSS.
This is like to have a blog on Blogger: yes, it's BS but a very well ranked BS.
