SO glad you figured it out, Jan Green!  I recently tweaked my G+ too and found some 'odd' settings that I think the gremlins set because I certainly didn't!

Lots of changes to SEO have occurred over the years due to the numerous domain changes here on AR.

I honestly never use my G+, I have it, it's current, but I'm never called to it by folks, seems to be a Facebook, LinkedIn World in my neck of the woods.

Good tip on the broken links though.

I went back and in the 2015 blogs that were on activerain.trulia.com are dead links.

 

Great catch. 

 

I wonder if leaving them on still generates any value? I mean...can their be any value in a dead link?

Let us know if your hits go up with house cleaning.  All I know those millionaires (AR) have their similar blogs removed because there are so many simliar topics.  They actually get penalized. Lately mine seem to have all disappeared.

I had not noticed however I will check it out.  I am not 100% consistent with sharing on G+. I like posts to index first then share there.  Sometimes I don't get back to sharing there. Thanks for letting us know.

Well yes it's really a big mistake that it's not public. I don't know the need for deleting old posts there except if the links are broken. That part, you're not too clear on.

AR never auto posted on G+ so you have to do it yourself. Could it be that you never noticed it was 'private'?
