Are you a +1? Do you +1? Now you can! A couple months ago I wrote a blog introducing Google's new +1 Feature similar to Facebook's "like" button. Now Google is ready to roll it out.

You do need a Google Profile to start "+1" -ing things but go for it! It's a great way to get yourself out there more too! Simply go to Google and Sign UP! Having a Google account and profile is a great SEO tool because you can add all your websites, social media sites and bio to your profile for others to find you.




Want to be found? Start asking some of your colleagues and friends to +1 your site, your social media sites and more. When you search for anything (once you are in your profile) you will start to see the +1 icon next to the search results, if you love the link or site, click it. The more clicks the more people will love it and so will Google.

You can also add the +1 button to your WordPress blog and other websites. For WP there is a plug in you simply have to install (really easy) and there are scripts for websites.

"Adding the +1 button could help your site to stand out by putting personal recommendations right at the moment of decision, on Google search. So if you have users who are fans of your content, encourage them to add their voice with +1!" According to Google's Webmaster Central Blog by Kari Wilson

So what are you waiting for? Start +1ing NOW!

Here are some great sites I recommend Googling that I approve to +1!! 🙂
