There is no denying the fact that Google+ helps provide a lot of exposure to your content. The largest number of page views I received on my previous Wordpress blog was roughly 300 over the course of a month if I was really active. In just 24 hours I have received 92 visits to this site, which is a brand new site on a brand new domain.
The only two places that I've posted to is Twitter and Google+; the stats I have show that the majority of them come from Google+. You just can't beat the community on there.
