I agree. Google + may be far away from threatening Facebook's dominance but it's gaining in importance fast. A discussion space here might be a good idea.

I know for a fact that Google is looking at Facebook and twitter links, and now it want's to put a lot more accent on human opinion in their ranking system. Think that Google+ should be a third social media discussion!

I moved your post over here. If you'd like to suggest a new forum then this is the place to do so.

Normally we make a new forum when there's enough conversation about a specific topic to warrant it.

Let me re-activate the conversation. I also would like to see a Google Plus forum created.

Me too. Google+ is now getting more and more important, so collecting discussions about it in a forum might be a good idea.

+1 from me ;)

Have questions about ranking in G+'s internal search engine and not sure where to ask.

The question you posted is being discussed here, in the Google SEO forum...

Ranking in Google Plus's people/page search
[webmasterworld.com...]

Lol, it's not really being "discussed" at the moment, but yeah I figured that was the most appropriate spot for now.

Glad you have a sense of humor about these things, rango. ;)

I published the thread and posted the above before I'd read the replies you'd gotten, hoping to get some members who'd shown interest in Google+ to jump in.

Appreciate that - probably not a question that will have a good answer, but worth a shot. I run a quite active forum myself, so fairly familiar with the shenanigans :) Thanks for cleaning the thread up though.

Might as well stick it up Google won't let this dog die an easy death.

It should be with the others more questions would probably follow with a place to post one.

Who would ever think...

Well since there are so many +1's, I thought I'd add my $.02 and say "-1". I have no use for such a forum as I won't be signing up for G+ :-)

And no doubt that's not the only forum category you and Lame Wolf will not be posting in. Not every forum category on WebmasterWorld is going to be significant for EVERY user.

@martinibuster Exactly. Not for everyone. But for those of us who are actually trying to adapt to the shifting sands of Google, having a forum dedicated to G+ makes sense.

One should not encourage bullies..Larry is bullying with the pushing of G+..and as regards WebmasterWorld..the G+ button is on every page ( in spite of the privacy issues that the loading of it via jscript and the subsequent identifying ability that it gives to G vis a vis our "nicks" ) ..and yet it is hardly ever used..

Look at any thread here ..do you see enthusiasm for G+ ..does the button get used ? ..No..

Ignore it ( G+ ) and it will eventually go away ..and if Sergey or Eric were to grow some, and tell Larry that you catch more flies with attractive honey than by pushing their faces in the jar of "I have a mountainously sugary party too"..then G+ would maybe become something other than Larry's sulky wannabee alternative, to the party that nearly everybody is at, but which he ain't the host of..

The fact that pinterest has come from nowhere and got traction, and began after G+, and with non of the "push" and "insistence" and to be honest, "coercion" that Larry has put behind G+ ..

Speaks libraries, not just volumes, about how wrong Mr Pages approach to "social" is..

Only a tiny minority of the users of the internet and of any forum are interested in G+..

The G+ buttons and their "non use" here just show how unappealing it is ..his numbers are only what they are due to the sign ups of new android phones and tablets ( which unless you already have a Google account, give you / force you.. a G+ account to get your device to connect to any Google app or the "market" /"play" )..

Strong arming "signups" is not the way to get willing participants..and the number of dormant and unused G+ accounts shows this to be true..

It certainly doesn't merit the "cred" that a dedicated forum here would give it..

If it wasn't Larry's very own "Idea" ..it would have been shut already and the VP responsible fired, or sent to be the new ASA here..:)

Pinterest launched in closed beta, March 2010.

I, for one, much rather spend my time on G+ than on Pinterest which in my opinion classifies as a bookmarking tool, not a social one.

I prefer G+ over Twitter because it isn't hung up on stupid 140 character restrictions.

I prefer it over FB because it's a better way of networking. And I'll take Google's approach to privacy over FB's any day of the week.

I get much better engagement from G+ than other networks and find it far less spammy than any others as well (maybe because you lot can't be bothered working it out yet).

I have almost as many people following me on G+ now as I do on Twitter and have achieved that in a fraction of the time.

I feel most of the complaints about G+ are actually more old fashioned tall poppy syndrome than seriously considered arguments. And probably a good bit of sour grapes to go with it.

As an online marketer, I don't really care how the users are signed up to these services. I care about how to reach them to drive them to MY sites. There's plenty of people on G+ and they are worth marketing to as much as any other network.

Just because you don't *get* it, doesn't mean you should actively stop other people from trying to.

As I said, if the scores on the G+ buttons here is anything to go by ..the majority here are not interested..

btw ..the BBC does not have a G+ button ..it has all the others..the BBC is one of the biggest and most visited destinations on the web..and they too think, G+ ..meh..

I don't do social ( FB Twitter etc )..and only have accounts to defend my companies names being registered by others..

Compared to the other social networks there are not plenty of people registered with G+ ..especially if you discount the ones forced into registration when firing up an android device for the first time ..without them you can cut his numbers back by at least 80% , which means that the growth of active G+ accounts has stopped and his "active" numbers, are "actively" going backwards / downwards..
..

There were many well researched articles ( not sour grapes ) on many tech sites about "Larry's G+ numbers" and forced G+ sign ups via first time android sign ups, around the end of January early February of 2012

You can start a "how to market to G+ circle" inside of Larry's party..you'll find far more "believers" there..all 10 of them..

Or it's because we are wise enough not to use it.

So far in my Twitter stream people are talking about their Pinterest accounts, and the few who joined G+ are talking about abandoning or closing those accounts because of tumbleweed. I don't think G+ merits its own forum yet, because there are too many other social networks that are more prominent.

Purely from an observational point. It appears that the long term people here are not in favour of it, and it is the n00bs that are.

As for Pinterest, it is becoming the new photobucket as far as DMCA's go, but that is for another thread.

I will second Google+ forum in near future.

Practically observing, majority of my contacts use Android powered phones etc. but still they cannot migrate to g+ yet.

It will be way to difficult to move them from FB or drive there likeliness off FB at moment.

Purely from an observational point of view, there's 4 in this thread who have accounts older than you who are in favour. And there's 4 against.

Doesn't really say much either way.

In any case, I think I've made my points and you've made yours. Happy to leave it with the powers-to-be to decide when WebmasterWorld is ready.

Another vote for a Google+ forum here. If there is one for Pinterest then surely G+ should be represented? I am battling at my work to get G+ accounts online (they already are there for Twitter and Facebook). Of course if G+ manages to influence Google SERPs enough then more people would take notice.

Yeah, but not in a good way.
