Google +1 and Social Media

Google has added another feature to its results pages that allow users to give a listing a “+1”. So if you’re searching for a product or service in the future, don’t be surprised to see a +1 as a sort of recommendation from someone you know.

We’re not sure yet how strongly this will affect search results but we have a pretty good idea that there will be some impact. We have known for over a year that Google is using signals from Social Media in its algorithm, it makes perfect sense for Google to have its own version of “likes” similar to Facebook.
