May 25th, 2011, 04:45 PM #1Google +1 is coming to a site near you
So Google is copying social networking sites with its +1 button, but Google is working on the next step which will allow us to add the button to our sites thus seeking approval from visitors.
Good or bad? Will this influence ranking, how open to abuse is the system.
Come on folks, vent your feelings

We had a discussion on this about a month or so ago, it was a featured thread, and I still think it reeks of spamalicious. Google is just looking for ways to monetize their site, like anyone else.

Thanks Convergence, I got a good bslap for posting that. Since then Facebook has moved up to 600 million members. Am sure the blackhats are well past th gaming phase but Google will eat their lunch.
What is going on with Google and social other than YouTube? I guess they have Google Buzz but I don't know anyone using it.

Personally, I don't think Google quite knows what to do about becoming "social". It's evident they WANT to be social, I just don't feel they know how to actually be so.
Have seen commercials on TV, as of late, pushing Chrome. While they own the search market, how many of their users actually know about the hundreds of other services they offer. I don't know all that they offer. Google has been a verb for so long maybe they have entrenched themselves too far into search with the general populous.
IMhO, I think the average online user doesn't like to put all their eggs in one basket. Companies get so large and they start losing that "little darling" feeling and start looking more and more like another Enron...

Google: Why don't you stick to what you originally set out to do. Deliver relevant quality results. Up til this last update they did that. Now they are going off the deep end. Well maybe it is a blessing since it will allow their competition to recapture a decent share.This World is Not My Home

Don't think it will influence ranking directly, but it's definitely a good way to build reputation for our websites.

this will just single out sites that rely more on social networking and have large numbers of traffic that interact, everyone else will be thrown out after awhile.

Just received the following message from Google
You asked to be notified when the +1 button code was available, and today's the day!
The +1 button makes it easy for visitors to recommend your pages to friends and contacts exactly when their advice is most useful -- on Google search. As a result, you could get more and better qualified site traffic.
You'll need to add a small snippet of code on the pages where you want a +1 button to appear. Ready to get started?
Anyone tempted to give it a go?
