Currently the Google Plus URL detection for social networks is 'plus.google.com', but the referrer is actually 'plus.url.google.com'.  I would like to have this updated to include plus.url.google.com to reflect Google's social network contribution accurately.  Please vote this up!

I validated this with Omniture DW by building a page view container where

Referrer type = social network

AND

Referrer contains 'google.com'

I only got a few google reader results, but no google plus results (plus.google.com or plus.url.google.com).

I have shared this with the appropriate people in Product Management. Thanks for submitting, Jeff, and others should please continue to vote for this idea if it is important to you.

Could this change be taken a step further so that Google Plus traffic is identified within a Tracking Code report if you have Unified Sources implemented?

Dermot - I think you should be able to accomplish what you're talking about by having the Unified Sources VISTA rule updated. The product team can't make changes directly to the VISTA rule such as (I think) you're describing. However, the general idea of enhancing G+ reporting is well-taken.
