Yes, you are much better off with Google+ as your main social media hub (over FB and Twitter).
 
YouTube, Google+, & LinkedIn drive most engaged traffic, Reddit & SU the least

Six months of sharing by 250 million people says that YouTube drives some of the most valuable web traffic of any social site, according to a study published by social sharing and analytics company +Shareaholic  this morning http://tgcafe.it/social-media-clicks.

_Here's the Skinny:

1.   YouTube is the undisputed champion. YT drives the most engaged traffic.

2.    Although Google+ and LinkedIn drive the fewest social referrals, they bring in some of the best visitors.

Go, Google Plusser!

3.   A referral from Twitter is as good as a referral from Facebook — at least, in terms of bounce rate, pages per visit and time on site. 

4.   Pinterest isn’t exactly the social media golden child we all play it up to be.

5.   Reddit users are the most fickle.

6.   StumbleUpon drives the least engaged referrals.

What's your take on it? How engaged are your visitors from your favorite social networks?

Just a quick comment/question: do you have any data on how well g+ performs vs those two other platforms in non-english spoken countries ? 'cause here where I live (Romania/Europe), both Romanians and Hungarians use almost exclusively FB, and I can't even convince people to start using G+. Any thoughts on this ?

+Ramsay Taplin asked me what blogging shortcut I'd recommend for new bloggers.

Little I knew he was putting together an epic post with 73 bite-sized shortcuts (my favorite kind). 

Some of my favorites:

♨  Start networking from day one
♨  Focus on long-form content
♨  Know your competition
♨  Have a basic understanding of SEO only
♨  Get on Google+
♨  Limit your plugins
♨  Simplify your sidebar

...and much more.

Contributions from +Gregory Ciotti, +Joost de Valk, +Glen Allsopp, and more.

Expert tip on networking. The biggest blogging shortcut anyone can take is dirty, filthy networking. The antithesis of 'business card guy', authentic networking is getting in touch with people doing interesting things with absolutely no agenda. In fact, if you can make your first email or ...

I have visited several "SEO" gurus and have now found myself to your Google+ page. Would you say that your Google+ profile is optimized to maximize traffic?
