    How does Google Plus ones work?

    *The +1 button and search results

    +1 helps people discover relevant content�a website, a Google search result, or an ad�from the people they already know and trust. Adding the +1 button to your pages lets users recommend your content, knowing that their friends and contacts will see their recommendation when it�s most relevant�in the context of Google search results.

    When a signed-in Google user is searching, your Google search result snippet may be annotated with the names of the user's connections who've +1'd your page. If none of a user's connections has +1'd your page, your snippet may display the aggregate number of +1's your page has received.

    *How will the +1 button affect my traffic?

    Personalized annotations next to your page in search results may increase your site�s visibility and make your site�s snippet more compelling, which may in turn increase the odds that users will click through to your page.

    *How do I add the +1 button to my site?

    Just grab a snippet of code.

      (function() {
        var po = document.createElement('script'); po.type = 'text/javascript'; po.async = true;
        po.src = '';
        var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(po, s);
