If you are on the popular social networking site – facebook, then you must already be knowing about its Like button. But now Google is also in the race to create a button, and therefore, Google +1 button. This button will enable users to share links more easily on the internet. If you are a webmaster, then you can add +1 button to your website or Blog.
According to Google
+1 buttons let people who love your content recommend it on Google search.
So yes, this button will benefit you much if you are a webmaster or a Blog owner. People can +1 your content/link, and then that will be shown in Google search. E.g.
Miley +1’d this
This button will give your approval over a particular link, so that your friends and contacts can find the stuff recommended by you. You can get recommendations for the things that interest you, and only when you want them, in your search results. These +1 are public, and they will appear in Google search results, on ads and even on other sites, but just ensure that you are signed in to your Google account. Looks cool, right.
