    Jeff-These are awesome stats! The information about SU is dead on! The traffic I get from that site at the right moment is awesome!

    Quick questions about G+. 1. How do they figure out the stats, such as growth rate. Before July there was no G+, so how did it grow 373%? Is there a good place to find more about their growth rate?
