I can guarantee you it will be a factor in Google’s SERPs. There really is no question about it.

felku answered 8 months ago
The thing is that it can be abuse it. I saw people in forum selling +1 in bunch already.

Warren answered 8 months ago
Any SEO indicator they launch will be abused. Look at what happened with link farms, keyword stuffing, etc.

felku answered 8 months ago
In that point you’re right. I will like to know if anybody have seen any change in their Serp because of this.

I agree with felku that this can get abused. I can imagine that it will soon die out I reckon in the future.

felku answered 8 months ago
I know from people that already have more than 1k in +1. I have near 150 but until now no changes in any of my keywords.

I think it will be a strong ranking factor until it gets abused too much. As soon as that happens, Google will reduce its importance as a ranking factor.

I’ve just added this functionality to all of my pages yesterday. Should I be concerned that I’ve got next to zero +1s?

Where did you add it? Is it visible?

Hi JillO

It’s a floating toolbar with Twitter, Facebook, Digg, and StumbleUpon buttons, to the left of the content on all of the pages. The toolbar plugin isn’t working 100% properly on the homepage – you have to scroll down a bit to see it. Think it’s conflicting with some jquery stuff and I’m trying to get it resolved but to no avail as of yet.

However you should be able to see the toolbar pretty much everywhere else. In blog posts, they’re hard-coded before the content.
