    In what sense do you mean that "Google+ is helping SEO"? Do you mean having a Google + page for your business?

    I recently validated a business on Google Places, and that process automatically generated a Google+ page for the business, too. I haven't had it long enough to know what effect, if any, it's likely to have. The link from that page to my website is not "nofollow", although it has some markup I don't recognise (but presumably Google understands it ). But it's just one link, so I hardly think that will make the slightest difference one way or another.

    Frankly, I don't expect any SEO benefits from the page. I don't see how it would help there. What we might see is a modest increase in traffic, especially if people post reviews on the Google+ page. The business is tourism-related, so it's quite possible that folk will want to share comments on how much they've enjoyed themselves.

    It sounds like you don't know what SEO is - it is about improving your position and appearance in search results pages. Nothing else. If Google+ means that you get more direct traffic then that's great, but it doesn't say anything about SEO.

    In terms of SEO is concerned, there is no information that it is helping SEO or anything else. It is just the views of the users, who thinks that Google+ is better for the SEO as compared to the other social networking sites.

    I think there is nothing to do with SEO when it comes to Google+ and it is not helping SEO for ranking purposes. Google+ usually used for important events and updates.

    Creata google+ profile or site and ask people to give you +1(they can be your friends too) and you will see how it will helps to your wesite.
    You will create backlink from Google itself.

    Believe me Google+ site (with posts from your website) and a lot of posts +1's it's much better then Google+ site with no +1's. But you must do that constantly(I mean ask for +1's)

    Google plus in a way helps in SEO, especially if you want to boost or establish your Google Authorship, your Google+ profile will correlate the content you publish on the web.
    As much as possible, the required fields such as adding your profile image, website URL, business description must be completed. Have your Google Plus page get verified by Google to get more credibility.

    I am not really an expert on SEO, but one way connecting your Google+ account to your website can be useful is that it lets you show your Google+ profile picture next to your website.

    Here is an official information from Google: https://support.google.com/webmaster.../1408986?hl=en

    Basically what this does is that when your site comes up in a Google search, your Google+ avatar will show up next to it (see the link above for examples).

    I read some varying stories on whether this helps or hurts when it comes to attracting visitors, but I would say it just depends on a few things, for example maybe this works better for blogs (and, of course, attractive people; I don't think you can use just about any image on Google+ as your photo).

    I did this for my personal site and I thought it looked kind of cool, but decided to disconnect my Google+ account as I don't really use it.
