If you have 0 likes maybe better to not have any...
Wrong way of thinking, first you start from 0 like everything new, then you join communities, you post on communities, other people slowly like your posts and they add you in their circles and + your page, and within some time you'll see your plus expanding.
That's the way to do it, and in fact, why should we webmasters that our employer is Google do not try to increase the popularity of G+ instead of the kindergarten of the other social giant.
I like G+ it has more serious people and communities and I have the budge in all of my sites.
