ElPacoLoco, did your Google+ Likes bring you business? From my experience, they tend not to, so I've never worried about them. The ROI just isn't there; it's more a vanity metric. I'm guessing your time would be much better spent elsewhere.

Also, it needs mentioned that Google is changing Google+ dramatically. It's becoming more of a "collections and communities" network, with far less emphasis on local business.

Mike Bluthenals (one of the more knowledgeable guys out there) has a good read on his blog: The New Google Plus – All About Collections Not About Business

From his article:

It doesn’t focus on businesses, their description, reviews, videos or business photos. In fact the complete absence of those features in this initial roll out seems to indicate the final and rather draconian separation from any business related function.
Of course, this is Google, and they radically change things every few months, just to be annoying (or so it seems). Things could be completely different by the time I hit "Submit Reply."

people go with FB and others. but I use G+ ..its the way to go.
ppl using FB and stuff are usually using it @ work time anyway.
G+ is synced with my fone etc. I send/upload all my quotes through gmail/g+ etc.
photo gallery's etc, and hangouts. or circles.. great.
