    Assuming that you're trying to put up quality work, though, couldn't this be a positive thing?

    You just know that this is going to be gamed like crazy.

    "You vote for mine and I'll vote for yours"
    "Buy this automated tool that creates Google accounts and votes up specific results"
    "Pay $29.99 and get 50 +1's for your site"

    Blah, blah, blah.

    Thats terrible! ..now I have to integrate a freeking +1 button to 60+ sites, after already having to go back through hundreds of hubs.

    Yuck!

    Maybe the time would be better spent hiring a coder to design a proxy switching, google account creating, friend adding, +1 bot and selling that to the masses.

    Anyone want to buy stock in GoogleGamer2012matron 5000 (patent pending) smile

    Hopefully, it will go the way of googlewave

    I don't mind if this doesn't happen. A spammer's delight I reckon.

    I have seen this on other directories. You can vote anonymously but only once a day. I tried it out on an old site I had on once showing in the directory on page 2 and after 7 votes, sure enough it was number 1 and still is.

    I don't like this type of thing and hope it never gets off the ground. It is a spammers delight and I agree with earnestshub completely on this one.

    pretty dumb idea if you ask me .... also how will you know to +1 a site until you've visited it .. so you click a link and think 'that's a nice site' .. what are you going to do .. go back a page to +1 it ? .. I doubt it

    I was reading that after June 6 Hubpages isn't going to support Kontera. Go figure. That's why I've always said that it's extremely hard to earn money here and with all due respect, I question those that say they do.

      This is:

      1. Completely off topic.
      2. Incorrect. You'll find that most hubbers agree that Kontera is almost impossible to earn from, with very low PPC rates compared to Adsense, and it can decrease your earnings from the other affiliates. I earnt about $30 on Adsense in the time I earnt $1 on Kontera when I had it active last year. Now I'm earning much more - WITHOUT Kontera.

          http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/70626

          Kontera will be removed automatically soon.

          In the meantime visit the earnings tab in your account section.

      Your quite right to question those who say they earn money here. I mean, I sit around on here all day and all night, earning absolute zilch. I paid for my recent trip to San Francisco and Las Vegas (and my wedding), and paid for my now-wife to accompany me, and bought a pug puppy a few months ago, entirely with old pound coins that I found on the local beach with a stolen metal detector smile

    So, for +1's do we get money or something?

    1. sunforged profile image74
      sunforgedposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      yes, thats exactly it.

      every time someone clicks +1, google sends you a dollar as a reward. Its deposited instantly in your paypal account.

      Pretty cool, huh!

      Thanks Google!

    I think this is a +1 April 1 fools joke

  13. sunforged profile image74
    sunforgedposted 7 years ago

    Its not +1 april 1st yet, and it was published 2 days ago.

    furthermore, its just a straight facebook rip off of the like function with google profiles.. the google april fools jokes are way funnier than this

      Ehow will just get more +1s because they come up first in Google. It doesn't make any sense to me.

      1. skyfire profile image73
        skyfireposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        I see ehow's new article in publishing queue - "How to Get 10,000 +1 from Google".

        Content something like this -
        1. Write varginal quality non-spoon content
        2. Don't ever think about backlinking
        3. Sit back and wait for 'cream to rise on top'.
        4. Google loves quality content and you.

        smile

    I will take the next flight to Mumbai, to establish the worlds first 1+ factory. I'll give hubbers a cheap rate.

    Top level package priced at $97, naturally.

    I don't think they should implement this because it is too generalised, what appeals to the masses isn't always the most useful or educational.

  16. moorebored profile image68

    Wow, this is an easy way for someone to make extra money then...

      It doesn't say you will get any money though.

    A new CEO was hired or promoted or some such thing at Google for real. I read an article by a former Google employee that no one is allowed to think much at Google, just do what they'e told. And they are paying us, these non-thinkers.

      The "new" CEO is one of the two guys who started Google.

      There's a story about it in the most recent Wired magazine.

    I just read the link like you suggested. Why does Google seem to be changing so many things around?
