1. still confusion about +1 button

  2. I think you should check my share bar at

    if you want to easily add facebook, twitter, del.icio, google, mail, add to favorits and more to your site.
    Free, no advertisments, you set the options and then just copy paste the code, includes the new google +1 button.

    Also at their forums you will be able to found how to integrate it in CMS’s like joomla, drupal etc.

    Good Luck! :)

  3. nice explaining, but I cannot do it in the right way, I put the code in the head of my page, and I put the other tags where I want the button to show, but instead its appearing as a hidden elements, so what is the problem??? Do I have to publish my site on the net before or it is working on my computer for testing it?? please help me I need this button.

    1. Are you testing on a local server or a live site? AFAIK, as long as you place the javascript code in your tag, it should work anywhere.

  4. it does not work for me

  5. 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?

    1. 24 hours

  6. If you have a website that has 50 web pages – do you have to place the 2 part code on each of those 50 pages or if you use an inc (include) file can you place the code on the 1 inc file which then will show up on all 50 web pages? When people like your various web pages will the data show all those different pages or that it only came from the inc file?

    1. You can use a inc file to insert the code into 50 pages. The code grab the
      URL directly, so it won’t affect its operation.

      1. I just wanted to say Thank You for responding Damien. I had posted basically the same question on Googles Support Forum (as they are always asking people to do) and I have yet to receive any response from others or Google. Your answer help to clarify the test I had in progress.

        This morning I did see in my webmaster tools in the social stats the test pages I had set up and they both showed up. So (for others who may be reading this wanting to know if it works) Yes you can use an inc file, put code in your inc file and it will show up on all web pages that use that inc file. And Yes when people click the +1 on each web page (that utilizes the inc file) you will see the various pages in your webmaster tool stats (at least I saw ours).

  7. 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.

    1. Nope. Google does not has a “dislike” button at the moment, and I don’t think it will come out with one.

  8. Google+ is on it’s way down because of their real names policy, google it and you’ll find out.
    I just removed the Google+ button from our sites pages.
    Don’t bother putting it on your site

  9. Thanks for the quick simplified version of adding the +1 button which work well rather than having to pay a web developer a couple of hundred bucks to install it for you.
