Google+ Gets 20 Million Members in Less than a Month [Not Sure]

ComScore – a web-traffic watcher company has revealed that Google Plus has witnessed more than 20 million unique visitors in less than a month.

It is three weeks or so since Google launched its social networking platform which was welcomed with both hands by users.

It is said that Google+ has shown such a steep rising curve which no product had ever shown so far. Despite of the fact that registration on Google+ is still invitation based, it has managed to get 20 million users in three weeks after its launch.

Also the search-giant Google has not completely launched its product to all its customers – as one can imagine, Google still has a potential of one billion unique visitors on its search engine, which is somehow unused at the moment.

Distributing the overall usage worldwide, USA tops the list with more than 5 million users while India comes second in the list with around 2.85 million Google+ users.

Integration with Gmail, Picasa and above all, the new toolbar (sandbar) above Google pages has given a new boost to Google Plus’s popularity.

Comparing the progress with other competitor, Facebook and then Twitter, a Google+ user Leon Håland has made following interesting graphs:

What are real total number of Google Plus Members?

While on the other hand, no official stats at this moment have been revealed. Here we are to raise a question about the authenticity of these figures.

Since it is all about Google so we tried doing a little trick to see how things actually work and it came out with totally different figures. Using Google’s own tools to customize search results, you can do different things such as to gather Google+ profile user links and Google counts them in less than a second.

Check the given search results http://tinyurl.com/676g8bj which show that there only 1.3 million Google+ profile links, that have been indexed by Google.

So either,

  • Google indexer is pretty slow,
  • or stats mentioned above are incorrect,
  • or 18.7 Million users have kept their profiles as private (not visible in search)

You decide yourself!

    good Achievement by Google in very less day. People are Active on Plus. with lots of shares.

    • this is impossible
      first of all ,google doesn’t accept every profile on + ,so that’s impossible
      or if people are accepted then they didn’t use google+ as they pass their time on fb(as many people forget + afterr creating profile)

      i personally recommend google over fb ,as it is more professional ,secure and resourced as well as awesome staff unlikely fb which bans profile and pages without warning
      Thanks

        — first of all ,google doesn’t accept every profile on + ,so that’s impossible

        There are SEVEN HUNDRED MILLION people on facebook. And you think 10 million on + are impossible??? Even if all 700 million tried to join + surely it is not incredible that 10 million got invites and got inside the system.

        — i personally recommend google over fb ,as it is more professional ,secure and resourced as well as awesome staff unlikely fb which bans profile and pages without warning

        I wonder which alternative reality you live in. People have been very angry at google in past few days for all the profiles and accounts they DISABLED and DELETED without any mercy or appeal process. and NO ONE CAN FIND ANYONE TO CONTACT TO FIX THE PROBLEM. All because some SOFTWARE decided their names were fake.

        So much for your “professional” and “awesome staff”.

        i will beat the FB(INSHA’ALLAH)…with bringing more & more people on Google+

      More than some less than others. Normal.

  • G+ Privacy Killer

    Google Plus is privacy killer as they integrated it with G other services as Gmail/Google Profile/Google Search that real sucks… They want you to use your real name and big G wants data for Google Search & adwords, may be sometime after they gonna sell it to… it is worse then FB !

    • Shahid Saleem

      You know who else has your real name AND location? Your mobile service provider!

      But I don’t see you worried about that. So why worry about Google?

  • Shahid Saleem

    — or 18.7 Million users have kept their profiles as private (not visible in search)

    Well if that is true we will find real picture on August 1 (no private profiles then).

  • Monis Khan

    according to your trick
    facebook have

    About 7,820,000,000 results (0.09 seconds)

    • Shahid Saleem

      Facebook gives people option to remove their pages from being public. In fact, you can even set your profile so that only your friends can see you, not even friends of friends.

      Google has no system like that. Name and picture ALWAYS public.

      • Irtza Shahan

        I never found out any such thing y which u can hide ur name nd profile pic from friendsof friends on fb . kindly tell me what are u talking about . I really need to know . Thanx in advance .

    Google Plus is the future, some time on the future it will buy out FB and Twitter

  • In my opinion, google crawlers are a little slow in indexing this much big data. For example if you submit your website to google, it takes days or even weeks to show your results on google until you have some powerful wordpress plugins installed on wordpress that pings their servers continually and submitting sitemaps also helps. However this is my experience, and I am a big G+ Fan.
