You can put them on other sites, but you cannot put them on HP.
Yes it was easy adding Google +1 on my websites, in html Dreamweaver files you simply add two snippets of code you can get from the official Google Plus one page, create a new Div tag and put it in between those.
I mistakenly clicked on my hub +1 button. DO I get punished? It says "You plused 1 and then a button goes to my website.
Hubs don't have them. How did you click on a "+1" button on a hub, when they don't have them?
I don't understand the second part of your above statement. Do you get punished for clicking on +1 on your websites? I don't know, I haven't read up on it.
Is it possible that she +1 her hub on the Google search page? That's all I can figure out. This thread has me confused. lol
Brakel2....did you hit the +1 on the Google search page? If so, I wouldn't worry about it, I've done it to mine.
On a side note....is everyone seeing the Google black sandbox bar at the top of their search page now that holds all of the sites/articles that you've hit the +1 button to or is it only some users?
I think she's talking about two different things here..
We can't add the +1 code for the Google button on HP, as this hasn't been implemented yet.
In the Google search results, however, the +1 button appears next to our links.
It doesn't hurt anything to +1 your own site, as the +1 button is basically a social networking thing. I've done it to most of my hubs and haven't had a problem.
I hit the +1 on the search page by my hub. Sorry for the confusion.
It's okay. I did all of mine, after I noticed Hippie's post. I went through all 102 of my hubs through the search engine and did it.
I also punched in my HP name "Cagsil" and did all the ones that I found, that led back to either my hubs, my blogs or my RedGage account. I have all my accounts, under "Cagsil", as it is my business name.
Thank you very much. I guess we are all doing it. You are all such a great help!
I wonder whether Google objects to plussing your own pages.
I've added PlusOne buttons to my website and have taken off all others. One of the reasons is that this is the first social tool that has the potential to directly affect search results and it is POSSIBLE that there is less potential for abuse. For example, if Google sees that you plussed 102 pages here and nothing else, they might legitimately suspect a motive and ignore those recommendations.
if John is plussing Mary's pages and Mary is plussing John's, Google could notice that collusion if their pages run Adsense or use Analytics. This MAY eliminate some of the fraud associated with social recommendations.
(hint to HP - you should be adding these buttons to our pages!)
I agree...I plus One all pages that actually helped me. I'm on the computer all day researching so my list of sites I've done it to is very long. When I pull up my history of plus one sites, my personal sites and hubpages are scattered nicely in.
Hey PC, I didn't only plus my pages. I said I put plus +1 on everything that had my "Cagsil" name on it. So, that means I put plus +1 on dozens of other pages aside to my hubs and blogs.
There are twitter and other directory pages that assist in spreading "Cagsil" around the Internet. And, so far, I haven't seen anything that says that I cannot plus my stuff.
If Google didn't want people to plus their own stuff, then it shouldn't allow you to do so.
I don't know that they care or don't care. I think it would be smart of them to ignore both self-promoting clicks and any "suspicious" clicks (large numbers in a small time period).
But they may not care or may not be that smart..
My guess is that you would be smarter NOT to plus your own content. But that's just a guess.
I totally agree with you on this, PCU.
Actually, I think they are even smarter than that. According to Paul E's new Hub, if I understood it correctly - http://pauledmondson.hubpages.com/hub/R … -and-Money - Google will downgrade the value of someone's plusses, based on the (non-)authority of others who also like the same page or site; and, similarly, G will upgrade the value of someone's plusses based on the (actual) authority of others who also like the same page or site. So, if we go around indiscriminately plussing articles, our own or someone else's, it could negatively affect the value of our plussing. In other words, it is in our own best interest to use the +1 button wisely.
That is - again - if I have understood Paul E's Hub correctly.
Adding the +1 button has been in the queue for a while, but we will roll it out with the subdomain switch. We didn't want any potential loss of count based on the URL switch of a Hub, like which is happening with the Facebook Like count (unfortunately).
I suspect you're right about abuse, too. We want to make sure Hubbers who are paying attention think through any +1ing they do of their own Hubs. Not only might Google discount the +1s of an author with a history of +1ing their own content only, but they also might discount the number of Facebook Likes and Retweets, which my gut says they are paying attention to, too.
I'm preparing a blog post about this very topic for today.
They have added FB to Analytics, so your gut is probably right. I'm still going to leave "like" OFF my own pages just because I detest FB. I'm cutting off my own nose, but I just can't do it..

But I am wondering why there seems to be competition in the real google world and no competition showing for it in the external keyword tool world?
