Direct Connect from Google search
People search on Google billions of times a day, and very often, they're looking for businesses and brands. Today's launch of Google+ Pages can help people transform their queries into meaningful connections, so we're rolling out two ways to add pages to circles from Google search. The first is by including Google+ pages in search results, and the second is a new feature called Direct Connect.

you type +netmeg you go right to my Google+ page
no actually , not if you set it up with a website url - tried it , just to grab the real estate for an important, to me, website.

entered +brandname , website listed #1. logged out etc + private browsimg in firefox.

have you noticed that there's not a single advert on any of the plus pages?
maybe that's just to encourage more people to sign up whilst its still new

The brandname would have to connect their website with Google Direct Connect first, and then it will take a while for the +brandname to work (and supposedly it won't work for everyone; Google is going to pick and choose)

Try your test again in a couple weeks.

Are most of you adding that red badge link (not just the tan +1 js button) to your websites? (Basically it is a simple link to your +1 page that you get when you complete the +1 pages setup)

On the plus side it could add page rank to my +1 page... On the downside it could divert pagerank from mysite's internal pages to google... Could no-follow but that would still lose PR...

Forget about PR...if google can parse links in JS, you still can bleed PR through them. But I don't think this has any big effect these days...

Can't create one because my country is not on the list.

Bummer. Can't get into places for the same reason.
