Google Adds +1 Aka The Like

March 31  |  News  |   Ryan Clark

This is fresh news hot off the press, and it has be a tad worried. Google is implementing a new social feature to their search engine similar to that of Facebook’s Like button. This is most likely not going to make much of a difference, although, you never know for those locked into a heaty top 10 SERP. I won’t go into it much because the feature is pretty self explanatory, and will only be used if you’re logged into your Google account. I do see how easy this is going to be gamed by black hats, but that’s not much of a big deal either as links are already as easily spammed. I’ll let the video do the rest, or one of the 100’s of other blogs that covered this news today already…dupe filter here we come!

    I don’t really know what to think. On the one hand, it’s a great thing for us SEOs who have power enough to +1 everything, but on the other hand, won’t it create power googlers like power diggers? Certain people are going to gain followings, probably unwarranted for the most part, and then they’re going to use that power to influence the SERPs for an untold number of users. I agree that making Google more social is a good thing, but I can see this going terribly wrong.
