If you’re an Australian who used a search engine in the last week, there’s an good chance you used Google.

If that was since last week, there’s also a chance you noticed the big blue arrow, announcing that Google Plus was now publicly open for business.

In the US this saw them shoot up the ranks.

Australia was no different, with Google increasing market share for Google Plus more than 455% compared to the previous week.

The impact of all these new users was also dramatic, halving the average time on site as people began to explore the new features.

Only time will tell who stays, but the range of Google Plus features is defintely impressive.
