Google+ has had a successful launch — even Googlers are surprised by how fast the service got to 10 million registered users.But it’s still got a long way to go.
According to statistics from Experian Hitwise, Google+ was only the number 20 social networking Web site in the United States, with 1.79 million visits last week.
That’s actually down 3% from last week, when Google+ ranked number 19.
Experian doesn’t measure mobile users or indirect visits through the toolbar on the top of Gmail, Google Search, and other Google properties.
But even so, Google+ is still far from a mainstream hit.
We have little doubt it will eventually surpass most of these competitors, but it’s interesting to see how much traffic they all have — and how far Google+ has to go.
