Introducing The Google +1 Button

Posted on by in Blog

Where Digg was once King, Facebook and Twitter have taken over as the must have social media buttons on blogs and websites. Social media buttons are a great source of traffic for websites and the social media websites themselves therefore it’s no surprise that Google are attempting to launch their own sharing solution with the Google +1 Button.

The +1 Button works in the same way as the Facebook ‘Like This’ button. Users can +1 search results or paid advertisements on Google. They will also be encouraging website owners to add the +1 Button to their websites too. Once it has been introduced, you will see recommendations from Google contacts (and others I assume) whenever you use Google (assuming you are logged in).

There is no information on Google on when this will be introduced however rumours are that the +1 Button may be used in some way to influence search results so I have no doubt it will be used by the masses. I wonder how long before we see social media services promising to make your website number 1 through +1 Button promotion :)

My thoughts on Google +1

Clearly lots of benefits for the webmaster, but what’s in it for the punter?
