Does Google’s +1 Add or Subtract from Your Website Value?

News / Sunday, July 10th, 2011

The +1 feature is gaining ground as the de facto method for quick and easy social sharing of what you’re surfing within your digital network of friends. I’m still not sure how or if it will add to my current methods of providing sharing links but I’ve decided to give it a try.

I’ve incorporated the +1 button along with the Facebook Like and Twitter Tweet button on my weblog and forum posts. I’ll keep an eye on how often these buttons are used to determine if they are more than visual cues of social proof or simply eye candy that don’t serve to provide additional promotional exposure.
