Google + 1 buttonWell it’s finally here! Google’s created a button similar to Facebook’s Like button call the +1 button. But how does it work?

It’s simple. As most of us who use Gmail know, we’re a part of a larger social group of friends who have Google accounts as well. Well, if friends in your Social Circle of Google friends decides to +1 a page or link in the search results, you’ll see their plus-sites too!

Here’s an excerpt from their Blogspot:

But the +1 button isn’t just for search results. We’re working on a +1 button that you can put on your pages too, making it easy for people to recommend your content on Google search without leaving your site. If you want to be notified when the +1 button is available for your website, you can sign up for email updates at our +1 webmaster site.

Google has also said that in the near future we’ll be able to interact through the Plus 1 system with our friends on Twitter and other social networks. That’s good news.

So it’s finally here, SEOs across Canada and the rest of the world it’s time to adapt again, get on it! Business owners, talk to your SEOs and webmasters and get them prepared to submit your website to Google +1 system as soon as they open, which I predict will be pretty soon!
