    Great video to help one get their head around Google+, +1 button and Google Search; and how it all fits together.

    Outside of authorship, there really isn't any benefit to promoting G+. To support it means to support G+ having more weighting in the search algorithm. Despite their claims, no-one is using it..

    Maile Ohye (woman in the video that looks like Sid from Ice Age) is a good analogy for Google + - no matter how hard they try to make it attractive, most people find it ugly.

    I stayed up to watch Google I/O keynote a few nights ago and it was scary just how deluded they are about it and it's clear their intention is to jam it into every single product in the hope it'll stick. Personally, it makes me all the more determined to avoid it. Not only is there no benefit to using it but it may actually be a threat to business as they want to move your audience from your site to theirs.

    Interesting times ahead.
