Anybody still using Google Plus? Curious to know if a G+ upvote is still a ranking factor?

    Nope. Only when you're connected to a person on G+ and that person gives a +1 to a link that appears in the search results does it get a preferred placement.

    Not sure that it ever was, officially - but may still have some small benefit, as Google looks at social signals as one part (of many) in their algorithm.

    I believe no, the Social share has little impact when you are consistent and has quality followers with whom you engage. One factor from so-called more than 200 factors of SEO.
