Google Ripples Goes International & Now Shows Link Sharing Stats

Ripples, the Google+ analytics feature, now has some added features for tracking.  Launched back in October, Google Ripples now have been enhanced to work for over 60 languages and also show how individual links are shared.

Up til now, Ripples only reported on how specific posts within Google+ were being shared.  Now all public shares of a URL can be viewed on a link.  Simply toss a link into the search bar and view all the Ripples:

This works for any publicly shared post with a link attachment.  Simply click on the dropdown, and select the “View Ripples” button:

For more information see the official announcement from Vic Gundotra, Senior Vice President, Engineering at Google.

    Does this mean I won’t need to keep paying for an Open Site Explorer/SEOmoz subscription in a few years?

    Hi Greg, I think the data visualization of Google Plus Ripples is nothing shore of awesome, especially to find sphere of influence in some of the social graphs of those shaping the social media landscape. It can give users a clue on who to follow/add to their circles. Thanks for sharing.

    @Brian, though sarcasm is often lost on me, but I don’t think that Google Plus Ripples will replace Open Site Explorer anytime soon since Ripples only works for content shared on Google Plus and SEOMoz Open Site Explorer tracks links/authority attributes for content independent of whether it is shared on Google Plus.
