Google Plus One 97 Comments
Google Plus One

Recently Google announced that they introducing a new social aspect to their listing, called “Plus One”, which is their way of adding another social element to the web.

Essentially Google is giving people the option to vote “Plus One” for content they like and also give them the capacity to share this with friends.

Below is a video that explains this new Plus One concept:

Matt Cutt’s, who is head of anti-spam at Google, has made it clear that when someone votes for something, it’s a good indication that they like the content and hence that it’s good quality. Matt Cutts has also said in his videos in the past that Google do take notice of social indicators such as Twitter for their rankings (refer to this video). So it seems that this new ‘Plus One’ move by Google, is addingΒ  another dimension to that.

In my last post I mentioned that I have a ReTweet button next to each blog post, and I’m about to add a more obvious Digg and possibly Facebook link also, to make it easier for me to get votes from people through these social sites.

When you think about it, it makes sense really, as by adding more social interaction into the search results, means in theory, that better results will show up by people voting it there. However I’m sure there’s always going to be a way to manipulate that. For the past years it has been and will continue to backlinks that act as the “voting” mechanism for the best content, but it will be worth keeping an eye on how this new Plus One feature plays out.

I can’t imagine it will have a huge impact immediately, but will probably be just another signal amongst many that Google looks at.

I’ve also heard that Google will allow users to vote “Plus One” on websites outside of the search results and that it will effect the rankings of the site in the search results.

I think the social aspect of the web is only going to continue to keep growing and these moves by Google are a clear indication that they are aware of this and that they intend to harness the power of it to give them the best results in search.

Your comments and Tweets (couldn’t help but throw that in…lol…) are always welcome!

    Hi Matt,

    Thanks for the post on the new Google element. I think it’s one of the ways of Google trying to filter out the low quality and maybe adsense sites on the net. I’m curious in the long term if the Page Rank will be influenced if you’re getting more +1’s. What do you think?

    I think as long as we deliver good contant that help people and create optimized websites we can’t go wrong.

    Regards,
    Stefan

    Hi Stefan

    Yeah I agree with you completely, it is a good thing, and as long as we product good content it will work in our favor

    going to be interesting at Google engine

    Hi Sharon

    Yeah I agree it will be interesting to see how it plays out, but I don’t think it will replace backlinks anytime soon.

    hi Matt

    Thanks for hihl lighting this new google application its got the potential to hit facebook /digg etc long term .But I also see this as yet another way to judge trends and sell advertising based on what prople are rating .I n other words we are doing googles market research for them
    But then google is a way smarter that the rest of the pack and most marketers

    However, I think that change like this is good for people who will keep up and adapt.

    Thanks for the update Matt

    I don’t think that it will target adsense sites as long as the content is good quality. It’s about social proof that the site / content is worth a look.

    I am not an expert but thats my humble thoughts on the matter but thanks for the heads up.

    Any tips on how to add a Digg and Facebook link on our sites? I’d like to do the same.

    Thanks,

    You could always use one of the many wp plugins.

    judy Reply:

    if your using a word press platform they have a plugin that will do that there is also a footer you can put on your site through wibiya that will add digg,facebook,youtube twitter and many others if you want them.

    Manipulating it is easy, and like there has always been the GPT clickers, commenter, and posters there will be the Google Plus One-ers.
    Is there any way Mr. Cutts will learn anything other than showing off?

    Matt Carter Reply:

    Hi

    Well it already has started but not worldwide and I don’t know for sure if it is calculated into the rankings yet, I assume not as it’s too early.

    Thanks

    Wow, this should be a lot easier to game than backlinks!

    I think it’s smoke and mirrors. People have gotten used to the “like” buttons, so this may be google’s way of giving people what they like. Do I think it’s going to have huge sway? No. As I said, it’s way too easy to game.

    Matt Carter Reply:

    yes I agree it is easy to game, but a lot of things are easy to game but it’s not much different that Twitter and Google has said that counts as a ranking signal

    Hi Matt, i think this is another indication to all webmasters now that their content needs to be of a good standard that provides quality and relevant information. I am sure we will see more and more social aspects creeping into Googles algorithm’s as it does represent the true feelings of the readers.
    Very interesting post Matt, thank you for sharing it.

    Hello Matt,
    As usual, thanks for keeping us abreast of what ‘s going on in the world of Google. I anticipate that this will turn out to be another useful backlinking strategy. And excellent content and social interaction should equate to more traffic.

    Hey Matt,

    Again, thanks for the timely information. Google Plus One sounds like a good addition to the social networking mix by adding another layer to peoples’ ability to legitimately recommend content they think is worth the trouble. It’s also a plus for those of us who are attempting to make the Internet a better place by providing “real value” to people out there who are searching for “real solutions”.

    Thanks again.

    Hi Matt,
    I am thinking there is a similarity with Facebook “Like” button. I understand it is possible to post duplicate articles on the web and inside Facebook and not the twain shall meet. Or is that utter nonsense. Thanks.

    Hi Matt,

    My son mentioned this to me yesterday but your post is the first I have had on it from the web. Thanks for keeping us up to date.

    I am only starting out at this SEO thing and after all the reading I have done this change is a real kick in the butt. I guess that’s the way its gonna be so I should just get on with it!

    Matt Carter Reply:

    Hey Dave

    I don’t think this is a kick in the butt, I hoenstly don’t think it will have much effect at all, atleast not for a while and if it does it will be one signal amongst 100’s that Google looks for.

    All the best with your SEO

  27. April 8, 2011 at 2:49 am | Permalink

    Thanks for bringing our attention to the latest of Google’s offerings. Personally, I find the whole social networking thing a royal pain, but one that apparently must be endured if you want to do business on the web. I have to wonder at some point if “recommending” pages and sites – some sites now have a long array of icons to click – will be more pain than gain for visitors… πŸ™‚ Of course Google is rarely off target.

    Matt Carter Reply:

    Hey Mark

    I know what you mean, I also find the social stuff a bit of a pain, but I think it is good to try our best to use it as much as possible. Also all the buttons on pages is a bit much, I agree with you, my thoughts are to keep it simple, Twitter, Digg, Facebook perhaps

    Cheers

    Hello Matt,
    I think in theory the google +1 is great, however, I think the google +Like will render this more obsolete. I’m assuming that in order to use the google +1 people will have to be logged to their google account or something. As we already know people are logged in to facebook more often than not. And people are already used to seeing the facebook like button and know how to interact with it. In my opinion, google +Like will dominate this arena. But it will be interesting to see how it all plays out.

    Thanks for the share and I tend to agree that Google is trying to grab a share on the social media front and also in a way try to encourage sharing of good content through social media.

    Just a suggestion for you Matt, would you consider using the plugin Digg Digg? And by the way is this comments section powered by Discus?

    Looks like Google is copying Facebook’s like button to turn the entire web into a social network. I think webmasters and users will now have an alternative to the FB button. Will it take off? Who knows.

    Hi Matt,

    Thanks for post and info update.

    I beleive this is a clear sign from Google that the social voting system for websites is moving in a new direction and will provide high quality search results. I think it will level the playing field and give genuin sites with good qualitiy content the credit they deserve by ranking them higher.

    Keep up the good work.

    Google introduced a new verb to English language. Soon people will say “please plus one my blog post” or “I just plus oned your Google Plus One Dominator sales page”.

  43. April 8, 2011 at 8:56 am | Permalink

    mmm this seems far too easily manipulated, companies could hire hundreds/thousands of Indians too do the voting through anonymous proxies from all other the world, hell how long will it be before someone writes a bot to do it πŸ˜‰

    As you say I wouldn’t have thought it will play a big factor in the algorithm.

    Still creating good content and actually ranking things people want to find is the way forward, regardless of how google chooses to vote your content, that just effects the second step, the promotion πŸ˜‰

    So if people keep “pluss-ing” your site will that mean there will be a score in the SE’s stating this site has been “plussed” 44 times. I reckon there should be a “minus” option also to filter out all the adsense sites which google thrives off also – like they should have a “dis-like” facebook button.

    Good post Matt.

  49. April 8, 2011 at 5:38 pm | Permalink

    Seems a great idea until you realise that Google will be keeping a record of all the things you +1’ed. It will then have a profile of your likes which it will eventually use to respond to your own searches. Some will love this, some will hate this!

  50. April 8, 2011 at 7:30 pm | Permalink

    I think the speed of change is a fact of life. I agree with all of the comments which say that quality will win out after all is said and done. It takes time and effort to provide quality.. and it shows. many of the websites I look at when I am searching are pure rubbish and cause me to instantly click away, so I suppose you have to try to be objective and ask yourself when you are building a site: is there enough value here to make someone want to stay?

    Thanks for the info, Matt. It is very helpful.

    I like this new idea because for the most part, people will be rewarded for developing a site with lots of great, beneficial content. I wish Google could not only find duplicate content and poor quality sites but, start to delete them as well. It feels like Its time to start cleaning up the internet!

  53. April 8, 2011 at 10:15 pm | Permalink

    I think this move is inevitable by Google – I just wonder how many other buttons we’ll end up having? LOL I also agree with Rob talking about have a minus button too!
    Matt – I have wondered in your teachings in Rapid Profit Course, why you don’t suggest using FBook. It would appear that it is becoming more important SEO-wise?

    Interesting, and I’m sure you’re right that it will become just one more of the many signals Google looks at. I wonder, though, about some sites that tend to draw a more “social” visitors who are apt to use this, vs sites that may be remarkable but their audience may tend to be less social and unwilling to broadcast their views. Seems like this might tend to promote certain types of sites. Or maybe not. πŸ™‚

  62. April 13, 2011 at 8:10 am | Permalink

    Hello Matt,
    This will probably evolve into a full-blown content-rating system on google over time where there will be a software mechanism for searchers to be able to vote for the quality of website content on a scale of something like +1 all the way up to +5 or something like that and displaying different colored eye catching content-rating ‘buttons’ beside some of the search results linking or pointing to the best rated website content within those results.
    Things constantly change and I can envision something like this as being just a small foretaste of things to come with search engines.

    Thanks much for keeping us abreast of the internet marketing changes! You do a great job for us all on this front.

    Question; Since you feel quality content is still the best way to rank, with backlinking and all, how do you recommend we continually supply or have fresh quality content -especially if we are not good at writing and have limited time, Along with a limited budget?

    I was not aware of this +1 tool from Google. Thanks for the information. I always feel up to date when I read your posts.

    Interesting post Matt.
    With respect I just have to heartily disagree with the comment that you quoted Matt Cutts as having said: “when someone votes for something, it’s a good indication that they like the content and hence that it’s good quality.”
    Specifically, I would refer to the “Like” button on Facebook. I have lost count of the number of occasions where I was invited to a FB fanpage on the strength of some initial topic that seemed appealing or raised curiosity only to find that in order to view the rest of the article or content I had to first “Like” the content. I soon developed a habit of refraining “Like” button clicks simply on the basis that I was curious and had no way of really knowing whether or not I would genuinely “like” the content. Therefore I would suggest that when people (in huge numbers) are clicking FB “Like” buttons that in a sizable number of cases are actually indicating “curious” or “might like” and certainly not a resounding “like”. Someone should develop a plugin that allows FB users to select “thought I would like,- but actually sucks” vote but somehow I can’t see FB being too thrilled about that!
    Cheers.
    Love your work!

    i tried it its working good. I worked it through google experimental , But i think who is having time to type this shortcuts. Searches always look for some information in quick time. I think this wont work for common layman . This might be useful one for technicians.

    Hey Matt, I just noticed this the other day & I’ve added it to my site (won’t do no harm huh?) but I am still unclear as to what it actually does. Does it recommend sites to my google friends? cos I don’t have any πŸ™ lol!

    hey Matt, what are the best wordpress plug ins to use with a wordpress site?

    I need them to be good with affiliate marketing.

    Any recommendations?

    Thanks

    I’m a little concerned about abuse potential with this. It seems that how black hatters can hire people to press their button all day long.
    I’ve tried installing the Google plus one button on my site without success. Anyone else have trouble? respectfully, Frederick Sallaz

    I have jumped on board the plus one band wagon and have been working hard to get more plus ones to my web pages.

    I have tried a few plus one services and I finally found one that worked! http://www.PurchasePlusOne.com

    They guarantee their results and I have noticed my search engine rankings increase after getting 100 plus ones to my homepage. I would definitely recommend their service to anyone looking to get Google plus ones.

    I have just signed up with Google+ and find it still a little bit confusing. I think that it has the potential to be the next social network giant, given the time.

    A good site for the Google+ tutorial can be found here.

    Promoting google+ votes is becoming a very hot business. Using these types of services could have negative or positive affects on SEO.
    We just have to see how google treats them. Another place to buy google plus votes is bulkones.com
    Will be interesting to see how this evolves over the next few months.
