If not can Hubpages put it on? I think it would improve our ratings.
We did have the Google+ button on our hubs. It generated quite a bit of traffic for me as many of my readers used that button, sharing and boosting the views of my hubs.
However..........HP deemed it was not bringing in enough traffic and did away with it. No discussion amongst us that write for this site, just an administrative decision to do so and then tell us about it.
That is the standard SOP here at HP. They do and then they tell us. Many times it effects the appearance of you hub as well requiring changes to be made in certain areas and capsules.
I'm also kind of curious about that. Squidoo, eHow, Blogger all have it.
I have seen it on those sites as well as others sites. I have it on my blog. I do know when one of my posts is Google+ed on my blog, the view stats reflect it.
If it is so restrictive to traffic, why do the other sites have it? That is what I figure you are implying. My thoughts as well.
Yes, it will definitely improve traffic and ratings.
We should have the Google Plus button. I have just written a hub about Google Plus. I ran a test, joined communities and posted links to my articles on Hubpages. The simply truth - Google Plus made a big difference to traffic. I am still monitoring the stats.
I keep wondering why we do not have a Google Plus button. Does it have something to do with Bing? If I was a director of Hubpages I would put the Google Plus button on. More money for the people that work very hard on Hubpages but also surely more money for Hubpages Inc. It would make commercial sense, and many other writing sites have the Google Plus button.
Thank you for your replies. I seen that it is missing on the new scorecard on my Adsense page. It is highly recommended there.

How do you get google plus one button on your hubsI see that the google plus button shows up on my profile page but not on any of my hubs. Do I have to do something to get it to show on each hub or is the plus one button not available on individual hubs?

Having written across of a number of sites, some that did the Google dance before dying a slow death, there's a chilling pattern that unfolds, not only for site owners but for their writers. Owners start by making changes--sometimes huge, time-consuming, expensive ones. Earnings climb and just as...

I am an Amazon affilliate and I copied the image and text of the product I want to paste to my hubpages webpages. I also copied the text for having the Google +1 button but what happened was the text showed up on my webpage and not the button. I do not want viewers to read the text for...

In his hub 'What We Don't Know About Google Panda?', Paul Edmondson points out that Google seems to expect sites to leap high above any bar that might reasonably be set for quality purposes.Paul seems less than happy with Google's attitude. He seems to think that if a page can somehow limp over...

I have kept quiet about this for a while now, but after the Panda update I saw my traffic drop a little then normalize (as expected after any Google update).However since I made the changes required by Hubpages (and I assume changes enforced upon everybody else) I have seen steadily declining...
