Wouldn't surprise me that Google favors content from it's own networks.  Just make sure you aren't logged in when you run the Google search, it will put your G+ posts at the top of page 1, but the won't be there for the regular person.

I cannot isolate it to sending to G+ … because I have been posting more on my WP sites as well as G+ and yes, ranking are improved and my phone is ringing.

That's how Google is keeping G+ alive.  If it were not for the SEO, nobody would be there.
