    It’s Here: Google +1 Buttons For Websites

    As expected, Google is now offering +1 buttons that can be placed on any web page via a short code snippet. The code/button is supported in 44 languages, but +1 activity continues to show only on English-language search results on Google.com. (Google says it’s working to expand +1 worldwide.)
    It’s Here: Google +1 Buttons For Websites

    The Google power to manipulate people to do free work for them...that's what it is!

    But I still didn't understand where to put this code? Anyone help me out.

  3. I think this is interesting because it goes in line with that "likes instead of links" paradigm shift thing which I rambled about some time ago. I have mixed feelings about what Google has been doing with search lately, but since I like the social media paradigm a bit better I kinda welcome this. I'm just not sure how much of an impact will it really have.

    Can it actually hurt to try it though? How? Also, are facebook likes really that useless?

    In the new Adsense beta interface it tells you:
    1 - one snippet prior to the </body> tag
    2 - ANother snippet where you want the button to show up.

    hi,

    I will wait and see how much it hurts websites before I put it on. Also how long to you think it will be before yahoo, bing and others copy it as well. They will soon be as worthless as facebook likes

    This should be easy to game for savvy BH programmers maybe? i.e. simulating random +1 clicks. Or maybe it is a trap?

    It appears that it would be pretty easy to game this with proxies or with a network of friends. I predict that will happen if this actually starts to influence search results.

  8. Doesn't the ability to vote require a valid Google account though? If so then anyone attempting to game this would have to start a bunch of fake Google accounts, and that's something Google might be able to detect and combat. It's similar with Facebook, except on facebook it's a little easier to check out an account by its activity history to see if it's legit or a scam.

    In any case I really hate spammers and fakers...

    Actually they will try to force people to sign up and login into a Google account to vote with the +1 button. It also means that you have to give away for free to Google your own internet surfing data until you are logged, then your data will help Google advertising system aka Adwords or other partnership or owned Google companies to benefit the analysed data.

    They offer Google analytics for webmasters which is in fact Urchin web analytics software. Now they want the other side which is the people.
