Google +1

Google +1 is a new product that was launched March 2011 in Beta to select users. Now it is out of Beta and you will find ads for it within Adsense and other places on the web.

Google +1 is Google’s version of Facebook’s Like button. It allows the sharing of recommendations with online connections and it’s all integrated into Google search results. Check out the video:

Google Adsense prompted me to add a Plus 1 button to my websites. Set up is easy, only two small code snippets need to be pasted into the site template file(s). There is also a WordPress Plugin for Google Plus 1, but hopefully a newer version which, makes installation simpler, will be introduced.

Search Goolge Plus 1 and you will likely end up on the consumer end of things where you can join the experiment and start sharing your recommendations.

Is this going to be another Buzz kill? Tell us what you think?
