This is the latest from Google.Their own version of the like buttons from facebook.
I keep reading more and more that Google considers like buttons and now their own +1 feature as personal endorsements.This is going to count more towards PR and search placement than links from other sites.

Worth checking out http://www.google.com/+1/button/

Finally got notice from Google this is now available....Funny thing is the link they sent to get the code returns the following.....

404. That’s an error.

The requested URL /webmasters/+1/buton/ was not found on this server. That’s all we know.

Just shows you this stuff happens to us all ...Even the Web Giants.

Hi John, try this link instead: http://www.google.com/+1/button/

They sent you the wrong link... Even Google, Inc. makes mistakes!

Hope this helps! :)

For those interested Here is the correct link....http://www.google.com/webmasters/+1/b...

Going to rethink this a little as I think we may be on tweet/follow me, like, share this,add this, linkedin and +1 overload ....The reason I was excited about the Google +1 is that they will show in Google search page results

Hello Mireille,

You can edit the header of your site. but please note: this feature is only available to Yola Silver account holders.

To get to this section, click on "Site" > "Site Properties" and select "Site Tracking Code". The "Header Code Ex: Metadata Tags" field is on the right hand side. Paste the code in that field and click "OK". Please note that that any code you add to your site is added at your own risk.

I hope this helps.

Hi David

Unfortunately, you will not be able to add it on a Free account because it needs to be added in the header section for it to work.

Thanks

I added the fist part of the code near the top of my page using the html widget and the second part again with the html widget where I wanted it to show.

Have done a little research into this button and it seems the +1's will only show up on google.com search results at present and then only to people logged into their google account, seems a bit of a pointless addition to me so won't bother with it.

No because like all the others Google is counting them in their ranking
