Another week, another tweak from Google. This week Google announced it will be launching a new feature called ‘+1’ which amounts to a somewhat simpler version of Facebook’s ‘like’ button.
Here’s how it will work. When you run a search on Google, a little +1 button will begin appearing next to each result – this includes all organic and paid results. When you click on the button, the result will get a little vote from you as to its quality. Right now, there is actually a little pop-up window that will ask you to confirm your +1 selection and give you some options about how your vote is shared with others. Google says they will be rolling out the +1 feature slowly, beginning with English searches on Google.com.
