These are the most important Google Plus directories I found until now. I hope I didn't miss other important ones, but if I did, just leave me a comment on the original post:

Please share this to help the G+ community.

This directory has more than 31 million G+ profiles indexed. You can search for G+ users by MANY FILTERS like location, occupation, employer, education, gender, relationship, interests and many more. You can also find an interesting GOOGLE+ INFOGRAPHIC and NEWS about Google Plus.

2. Social Statistics -
Social Statistics not only that shows you a top of the most followed users, but also the "Hottest Google Plus Posts" (by +1's, shares or comments.) Adding yourself to the directory allows you to track your very own Google+ profile, giving you FOLLOWERS STATISTICS AND CHART! Also, the Google+ Statistics WIDGET helps you to promote your Google+ account on your blog or website. Get also the Social Statistics extension made by +Tetsuya Kitahata from here:

CircleCount not only that allows you to see the most followed G+ users and gives you NICE CHART AND STATISTICS for your account, but you can also look for the most followed accounts from YOUR COUNTRY and see where your profile is in that top.

Hi, I'm building a non-profit website,I publish it with no back up,how can I restore the same page that I was working on?

I can haz friends? YIPPE!!!
I just don't like how it lets people add you && comment on your things
From what I've seen, the standard method is: Post comedic stuff, collect a gazillion followers. I've seen more than one Google Profile that is little more than a comedy club whose intention is to attract new followers. I'm sure these people have their reasons. I'm just describing a trend I've noticed. Myself, I prefer to keep limited connections.
This is all very confusing...looks like people are just collecting people.i'm very content with a few good friends...unstead of "collecting people lije stock".......Crazy!
Perhaps the next What's Hot should be how to hide from people on G+ ;p. It is far more 'open' than Facebook, and new users should recognize that. Each approach has its advantages and disadvantages, but G+ is definitely designed for rapid network growth.
Jeremy...i havent been adding many people at all...and dont have plans to do so. I'm not on fb very much anymore..I do have 800+ friends there...i dont want a repeat of that social network..this one i want to be different..People are adding me...i'm not adding back...1 or 2..
Google very Plus...Thank's for info
From my point of view its good meeting new people but not through online..
Hafsa its k we can meet in person.

Its fine meeting lots of Strangers
dont think so ur good ! still if u have any idea let me know...
Lol oh trust me I am good in many ways && also what do you mean have any idea if what??!!
+Pierce Cobb
oh u good in many ways !!! sounds cool, i mean the idea of meeting new people, u dont like to meet em online na
Lol why yes I am(:
&& nothings going to change my opinion I mean if that person your talking to has seen you in person somewhere or lives near around you or in the same state then its all good.
u sounds like u from Asia-India ...northern side!!!!....& how many new people u met so far, near by you, ur state or country
thanks for sharing, never heard about some
Google+ is not ONLY about keeping in touch with the friends that you already have, it's also about making new valuable connections. You should try that!
Thanks all for your feedback.
thanks for sharing really useful information
I am going to try it, as my friends are very few, due to jobs in the past and now with my health I am at lost as to how to make friends
I love +Amy Fee Garner's comment on this one on the reshare from my personal profile:

"I see Google+ like an opportunity to read about, hear from, and connect with people who share my interests and whom I would never have been able to find otherwise. I read about other points of view, learn about subjects I don't know enough about, and get a glimpse into the insight of creative minds. I see this as a way to grow. All of my real-world (and online) friends were once strangers -- and then we found something in common."
Thanks for collecting these various Google+ people tools. I tried a few and find that Google+ is still the best way to find relevant "people". The tools I tried often led me to non-relevant results and a number who had G+ accounts but are not yet actively posting to G+. But thanks again for the links. I'm sure these tools will get better over time, especially if Google eventually releases an API.

I don't give out information && you don't need to know how many && also..I am not Indian at all..
Does anyone know if it is a no-no to Plus One ourselves?
Let see if i understand this. The world greatest search engine, 'google', created a social network 'google plus' right? now, in order to search for people just like generic sites such as black planet has mastered, you need to leave and use a third party's site to achieve that goal, and people seem okay with that. very strange.
Thanks for the handy reference, Gabriel.
Cool, I'll have to add this to a Google+ blog post I just did.
excellent - very helpful
Great information. I can't wait to dive and see what's available. Thank you for sharing.
Nice post, I cant help but see the irony that is using a directory to find people on a search engine based network.
Great article, and feel free ANYONE to circle me (lol)
