Have you added +1 to your website yet? If not, I strongly suggest that you do. Here is the link directly from the google site where you can get the code for the button to add to your website: http://www.google.com/webmasters/+1/button/
Also, Check out the introductory video posted on the Google Webmaster website:

The +1 button is just like a Facebook “like” however it is used for search and websites. In a nutshell, the idea behind the +1 is to help users find trusted high quality sites. Essentially, it is a way for users to rank the relevancy of a website. Sites with a high volume of +1′s, in theory will:
  • Be a trusted resource
  • Have high quality content
  • Be a site that you would want to share with others
It is meant to help internet users find great content and allows people who enjoy your content or website to recommend it to others.
The +1 icon:
  • Will appear in search results
  • Can be added to your website
  • Will appear in AdWords Ads

I think Google is definitely going to use this as a quality content indicator in their search algorithm. Having more +1′s is a social indicator, that once it catches on, will help drive more traffic to your website and blog.

This is definitely a MUST ADD to your website.

  1. Hello! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  2. Hey There. I found your blog using msn. This is a really well written article. I will be sure to bookmark it and return to read more of your useful info. Thanks for the post. I’ll certainly comeback.
