What is \"following\"?
The \"following\" number is the number of persons someone has added to his circles.
What is the \"CircleRank\"?
The CircleRank is the position of a person in the ranking of followers. The smaller the CircleRank is, the higher is the person in the Top 100,000 of the Google+ users.
Why are the CircleCount.com numbers wrong?
The numbers that are shown at CircleCount.com are the public numbers that are show at Google+.
You can check these numbers directly in Google+ (like described in the help section). Open your profile and click on the field \"View profile as\" and choose \"Everyone in the web\".
The numbers shown on your profile are not updated live. Google+ is caching the numbers so that there is not always the current number shown. Unfortunately there is no official rule, when these numbers are updated.
Why can't I find myself on CircleCount.com?
CircleCount.com doesn't track automatically everyone at Google+, but everyone who wants to.
