Google has launched Google +1.
Lets answer the questions you all must be asking now.
- What is Google +1?
The +1 button is shorthand for “this is pretty cool” or “you should check this out.”
Click +1 to publicly give something your stamp of approval. Your +1’s can help friends, contacts, and others on the web find the best stuff when they search.
Google Website, http://www.google.com/+1/button/
- How will this benefit anyone?
basically what this button does is to make recommendations for people when they are in desire for it. hence a blogger might see traffic if most have his readers are making recommendations to thier friends and family.
It is quite clear that thus was well thought out to make a more social featuring to thier search engine and over time we will see if it will work that way.
- How can i get this on my website?
It is really easy and simple. if you are on blogger it is already a feature accross the plateform but if you need to insert it into your wordpress blog or any other platform then you should head over here
Personally this looks to be a great idea yet but it only looks for time to tell if it will get the right support or traction it should. we will keep a close track on this story.
