[…] public G+ posts count as websites now, as far as Google search is concerned. Furthermore, Google search now obscures natural Web results whenever possible, giving Google+ results from users' networks instead. And it hit me: True Believers of the Holy + might see this re-shared Google+ post of an almost-unattributed rip of my story instead of the original. Google+ hates the Internet!
Although I'm not seeing this for my posts yet, I think ReadWriteWeb is right: it's increasingly looking like Google+ is a mess, not just in itself, but also in its implications for Google's core business, search. Is Google+ messing up the Internet? Looks like it's going in that direction at any rate.
