    Wow great tool to use, I found many things well but I want to know someone’s Google plus page Authority….. like if he publish some of his content through his google plus profile then how much will it affect his rankings and link juice.

      Hey Ankit,

      At this moment it’s impossible to determine if Author Rank still plays a role in search and it’s even harder to determine the value of a link or mention on a G+ profile. A mention or link, published on an important G+ profile, is still valuable social reference but the value for search is probably limited.

    Really great tool, I’ve been on the lookout for my Google+ stats but haven’t really found anything that suits my fancy like this one!

    I wish I knew where those multitudes of views of my profile came from though, but that’s probably nothing that can be found out, at least not for free and outside of G+

      I’ve seen the number of G+ views shift around pretty heavy when I was developing and testing this tool. But I’ve done some recent testing and it seems the number of views displayed on a G+ property is stabilized and quite reliable. Probably due to some problem solving by Google ;-)
