Google has just released the Google +1 button which webmasters can add to their site / blog and enable visitors to give a recommendation to Google and your friends about your site.

Add Google +1 button

Google +1 ButtonWebmasters can get the +1 button code right now. The implementation is very simple and you get started instantly by using this default code where you want the Google +1 button to appear.

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

To get a tall button, use this code

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
<g:plusone size="tall"></g:plusone>

The buttons are available in 4 sizes and the url is grabbed from the rel=canonical META tag in your header. You can customize the code at the +1 site. Google +1 has been tested widely on Google search results, which you might have already noticed if you have tried the Google experimental search earlier.

This video will explain how adding the +1 button can make your articles go viral across the web as people vote the +1 button. Google also intends to use these votes in its search engine rankings as a social influence factor.

See the buttons live on our site right now and give us a +1.

    nothing but overloading the page with another script .

  2. RealTimeTricks says:

    I don’t think this button is going to create a craze as fb like or share button have. I’m not going to use in any of my site. Lets see what others think.

    • Fayaz Ahmad says:

      I also think that It will be not become popular as face book but It will recommend user about our site

      • QuickOnlineTips says:

        You never know. After Buzz, Google is trying to get a good alternative for Facebook likes.

    • Jennifer Patton says:

      Facebook is losing fans and popularity. Google+ may very well reign over FB soon!

    • Social Media News says:

      Hi patten. I am quit disagree with your comment. Facebook there are less chance of losing fans coz of google plus. Facebook is diverse social media platform on universe which is the choice of all business man and teens.

  3. Michael Aulia says:

    I’ve just put it in on my blog posts (the small one goes along well with my other share buttons). I’m not pushing it as hard as Facebook’s like though (bigger button)

    I hope Google one day takes Facebook Like as one of the important things to be considered during searches

  5. rakesh kumar says:

  6. Ifham khan says:

    I thinks it will be helpful for webmaster for sure

  7. Tech Crates says:

    Added this button..Gonna try this for a while ! If it works then :-)

  8. Senior says:

    Following Blogger’s announcement, the +1 button didn’t appear on Senior Speaks! and when I added both parts of the script, it appeared twice. If the button hasn’t appeared on their blogs, Blogger users should add the top part of the script to the header of their blog’s HTML template.

  9. Dave Drew says:

    Sweet!!! I’m gonna look into this one more. Oh, the power of Google and Facebook. I can see how this would be great if you had a ton of fans.

  10. Bob says:

    It is worth a try. I’ve noticed you can undo your +1 by reclicking. :)

  11. Philippine Job Spot says:

    Just added this button to our pages but seems there is some auto padding / margin on the right of the counter.

  12. Ashish Gupta says:

    Is it really helpful for the webmasters in promoting their websites ?

  13. Hub Geek says:

    If this improves the search engine ranging, the most essential tool to add in website…

  14. Zohan @ ScreamingTips says:

  15. john says:

    it ‘s good for webmasters

  16. Eleazar says:

    I’m adding +1 button now. I’m hoping this will work, do wonders to my sites, and attract more traffic from the search engine especially Google.

  17. Krish Purnawarman says:

    Would be good if it integrates to Google places/maps as well, showing users the +1 along side the reviews !

  18. Jose says:

    I’ve tried to add it to my blog without success, but I’ll try Senior’s approach.
    What I wanted was to add it in a way to show up under each of my blog articles, if that’s possible. Just like the other share buttons that I have.

  19. Namita says:

    I will try +1 on my blog..

  20. Amrish Singh says:

    Now day google is launching more services like this to safe his #1 position in alexa . I think It will be more useful

  21. Elvena says:

    Do you have the easiest way to put google +1 on wordpress?

  22. makethemoney says:

    i’m using wp. so where should i put this code?? does this only works with certain themes?

  23. makethemoney says:

    where should i put this code on my wp theme?

  24. Ted and Mark says:

    Google +1 button is going to expand as more and more people start using it. Google rewards the site when then button is pressed as it is like a scoring system.

    Now as a site owner you get rewarded when visitors press your Google +1 button but what about the visitor?

    Now wouldn’t it be good if you could reward and encourage the visitor to click your button?

    Well you can if you are using a wordpress site and know where to look for it. Just down a plug-in that can reward and redirect to an affiliate product if you wish.

    Now I would call that a win win situation, wouldn’t you?

  25. alarm sistemleri says:

    I wonder if it also has a dislike feature which is frequently abused for example on YouTube. I understand that any rating counts for more than no rating but rating with the intention to do harm rather than good to someone is pathetic.

    We will try to get as much as +1 we can because we know the benefit of it with seo prespective (and soon we will see many people started to sell +1 as well) but a normal user do not know about it and where facebook like button is one step ahead from it.

  26. Wordpress Themes says:

    A great little tutorial. Hopefully this really takes off, seeing as it’s google!

  27. Breaking News says:

    I added it to my blog a few days ago but I wish I had read your tutorial first, it took me forever to figure it out. Thanks for sharing.

  29. Jay rana says:

    Nice thing.. its change the Search Result Queries.. Everyone has to implement it..

  30. Fabio says:

    Thank you for the tutorial. I will try to make this work on our site.

  31. Paul D. Mitchell says:

    I definitely think a Google+ button must have at least a positive effect on your website in terms of position on Google. Possibly in future could be a ranking factor for Google although not a main one. I do question the numbers of these type of button. I recently used AddThis on my site and there a range of buttons I dont recognise or have been used.

  32. Agrodut Mandal says:

    Once the +1 button is placed on your site how long does it take for data to start coming in which you can then review through your Webmaster Tools?
