How does Google Plus ones work?
*The +1 button and search results
+1 helps people discover relevant contentâ��a website, a Google search result, or an adâ��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 itâ��s most relevantâ��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 siteâ��s visibility and make your siteâ��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.
po.src = 'https://apis.google.com/js/plusone.js';
var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script'); s.parentNode.insertBefore(po, s);
