Two very good points as to why G+ may improve your rankings - and it's not because it is owned by Google.
 
A Theory on Google+'s +1s Correlating w/ High Rankings

The new +Searchmetrics correlation factors is out: http://www.searchmetrics.com/en/knowledge-base/ranking-factors/ and as was the case in years past, there's a very high correlation with +1s and ranking well (0.33 -- higher than links, other social signals, etc).

My theory is this (and it's just a theory): Perhaps more Google +1s indicates two things that are often important for good rankings:

A) More logged-in searchers being biased to the result, which then brings with it positive jumps in user/usage data-based metrics in the algorithm

B) More social-share worthiness among the same types of early adopters that often have websites and can link out. My assumption here is that Google+ users may be more likely "Linkerati" than average users of Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, or LinkedIn.

There's plenty of other explanations of course, but I thought I'd share these and perhaps entreat others to add their thoughts.

Tricky place for marketing that China.
Interested in reaching China's growing middle-class population? Unlike elsewhere, the search engines aren't the main arbiters of what people see -- you'll also need to master the Great Firewall, aka the Golden Shield.

Delicious pizza, huge servings (20-inch) and great value (£20). Could easily split the pizza between three people and still be full. We split between two. Not a huge amount of meat options (maybe indicates the price) but all options look tasty - not your average pizza menu. They also make you pay for your wine by how much you drink out of the bottle. They measure the amount taken out of the bottle at the end - a bit different. One glass worked out to be about £4.

Love the upstairs terrace. There's a lot of space - great for after work drinks and a feed even when the weather is cold. Very close to Richmond station, the MCG, AAMI Park and Rod Laver Arena, making it handy if you're looking for some pre-drinks before an event.

Delicious. Classic Italian pizza. Their tomato sauce and dough is amazing.

One of my favourites in the Fulham/Parsons Green area. Usually have the Eggs Benedict or Florentine and all aspects are pretty perfect. Coffee is stellar too. Can get a bit cramped if there is a few weekend prams in there, but they have a nice outdoor area in the back that is ideal for summer days over a flat white.

Delicious pizzas. I've eaten at a couple of similar traditional Italian pizza restaurants (DOC in Mornington and Ciao Bella in Balnarring) and this place is of equal measure. Really nice food and the service was great - really friendly.
