While I am at MattCutt’s Blog, I see the couples of Google Plus One buttons pinned in the footer of his every post and at sidebar as well- it’s beautiful and somehow I envy seeing that it gains a lot of clicks. Remember, Matt is an awesome SEO guy working at Google and he really got a bunch of followers even me. Lol…That moment really teased me to try the Google plus button that’s you will see it now in my homepage. Cute right?
To date the Google Plus One button was now officially launch globally and you will see it now in many individual blogs online. Making its first debut it will be featured plenty of foreign-based news and multimedia sites will also implement Google's favoring feature, including Spain's El País, The Australian and TechCrunch Japan.
Why Google Plus button was made?
I have my three observations on why the Google Plus button was made:
1. The Google+ - As well know, Google had officially announced their Google+, a new social network that would battle Facebook and the Google Plus button works like the popular Facebook like button.
2. Viral Marketing- Google realized that the Facebook like is such a powerful viral marketing today that you will find almost of the webmasters online implemented it in their individual blogs.
3. SE Related Reason- the Google plus button has something to do with search engine relevant results and blog indexing factor according to Google’s word.
Do you agree with these matters or not?
SEO and Blogging Impact
Now, talking about the SEO and Blogging benefits of the Google Plus button let’s read the Google explanation:
“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”. “Over the coming weeks, we’ll add +1 buttons to search results and ads on Google.com. We’ll also start to look at +1’s as one of the many signals we use to determine a page’s relevance and ranking, including social signals from other services. For +1's, as with any new ranking signal, we'll be starting carefully and learning how those signals affect search quality over time. At first the +1 button will appear for English searches only on Google.com, but we’re working to add more languages in the future”. “We’re excited about using +1’s to make search more personal, relevant and compelling”.-Google Webmaster
These seems good news to everyone who wish to find another tool to promote their respective quality blog content.
Alright let’s take read, the views of the experts about the Google Plus in SEO side.
If there’s anything we know for sure, guessing Google’s intentions is tricky. But, with so much evidence pointing toward social integration into search and the +1 button finally rolled out, I can safely say that a smart webmaster and Internet marketer will keep a close eye on these tools. Soon enough, I believe this tool will become a fantastic resource to better connect with readers while improving rankings in Google.-Affiliorama.com
“The primary benefit is that search gets better. It gets better in the user interface immediately, and we’ll look at it as a potential signal to improve search quality as well. I find social search extremely useful, especially with the recent updates. This change continues the evolution of social search, and it’s a natural progression to improve the search experience” - Matt Cutts
