Google is number 1 because it runs on a trial and error method. It gives us an opportunity to try out some new stuff. Like Gmail, Orkut had beta invites, even Google has an experimental version for us to try out and give the desired feedback. Today, the big daddy G unleashed another one of it’s experiments for us to try. It’s called the Google +1 Button. The Social Media and SEO Guru’s call it as Google’s answer to Facebook’s Like Button.
Well, considering it as a Social button still looks pretty far, as Google has said that it will take certain months to give the +1 Button a Social Media dimension. For now, it will just act as a Vote Up for Search Results i.e. it’s function is to help searchers find the best result. But to prevent fake vote up’s Google’s has ensured that when a user +1’s a result then, only the count increases and the search result stays stand still. I think this is a good move by Google to just increase the count of the +1 button and not increase the search result up as a whole. In the next paragraph you’ll get to know HowTo try out the Google +1 Button.
Basically with this +1 button you will be able to recommend certain search results to your friends, family or connections. You will help them in saving their time by hitting the +1 button.
