Are your google plus postings on page 1?
I've been excited to see some of my posts appear on page 1 of a google search and i'm sure others have also.
I ran this past someone with a lot more experience than me. His explanation was somewhat deflating for me but I understand what's happening.This is his explanation;
"Google is somewhat more complicated than that. I suspect if someone else makes the same search you will not see it there. This is because if you are using Google's Chrome browser and make a search, Google use multiple criteria to deliver the results....my explanation follows;
The idea behind this is for them to give him the best results for him. That is based on things such as his search history, his surfing history, his location and other factors that Google keep working on to stay one step ahead of the 'cheats'. Result is that a search for the same term for 2 users is never the same these days "
Therefore if you see your posting on page 1 it doesn't mean anyone else using the same keyword search will see it. If you use the "incognito" window or use jaxy to check the ranking you will get an accurate picture of where your posting ranks.
