Google Introducing +1 button in Search Result

Google's +1button

Google introducing the +1 button, an easy way for Google users to recommend your content right from the search results pages.

According to Official Google Blog : The beauty of +1’s is their relevance—you get the right recommendations (because they come from people who matter to you), at the right time (when you are actually looking for information about that topic) and in the right format (your search results). For more information about +1, watch this video:

How do Google know which +1’s to show you?

Like social search, Google use many signals to identify the most useful recommendations, including things like the people you are already connected to through Google (your chat buddies and contacts, for example). Soon we also incorporate other signals, such as your connections on sites like Twitter, to ensure your recommendations are as relevant as possible.

How to Get Started?

To get started +1’ing the stuff you like, you’ll need to create a Google profile—or if you already have one, upgrade it. You can use your profile to see all of your +1’s in one place, and delete those you no longer want to recommend. To see +1’s in your Google search results you’ll need to be logged into your Google Account.

Google slowly rolling out +1’s, starting in English on If you can’t wait to start seeing +1’s, we’ll soon let you opt-in to the launch by visiting our experimental search site. Initially, +1’s will appear alongside search results and ads, but in the weeks ahead they’ll appear in many more places (including other Google products and sites across the web).
