How it works?


If you like a particular webpage, blog post or an article, hitherto you used to get it bookmarked via Digg, Stumble Upon and other social bookmarking sites, sometimes you may even would have shared the link in Twitter or FB. Interestingly, with the inception of Google’s +1 button, now you can get tete-a-tete to yet another mode to recommend the web pages online that you cherish, with merely a single click.


Implementing "+1" button

In a welcome move, Google has made +1 button available in Blogger, YouTube, Android Market and in all the Product searches via Google search engine. Alongside, if you want one such button for your own website then you can simply visit Google’s official webmaster central blog to get the desired javascript code. Just copy and paste the code provided there into your website and customize it as per your needs.

Its significance with respect to SEO

As an icing to the cake, if anyone from his friends or contacts has already recommended your page by clicking the like +1 Button, the visitor will instantly come to know about that and chances for him to click the link would rise to manifolds.
