The Google +1 button has officially made it to Singapore. As you would have noticed, the button has started to appear on Google Search results, Google Ads & other Google +1 partnering sites.
Here’s just a short and simple description of its purpose, explained by Google: “The +1 button is shorthand for “this is pretty cool” or “you should check this out” and it puts the right recommendations right when you want them – in your Search Results”.
Watch how easy it is to recommend something – all you have to do is click +1 on a webpage or ad you find useful.
Google +1 Button
It takes just 1 easy step to getting Google +1 appear on your Google Search:
- Make sure that you already have your public Google Profile. With it being public, your profile is visible to everyone & whoever who has connections to your email address, including:
- People in your Gmail (or Google Talk) chat list.
- People in your Google Contacts
- People that you’re following in Google Reader & Google Buz
However, you have the flexibility of controlling who sees your +1’s on your profile by adding or removing them from the groups in which they’re included.
Another exciting feature of Google +1 is the fact that it allows advertisers to enable the +1 button on Google ads too. Google emphasized that this does not change the way Quality Score is calculated, though it may affect the calculation of an Organic Search Ranking.
Apart from that, Google is also working on a +1 button that can be placed on pages too to ease recommendations of your site on Google Search. Do check out the +1 Webmaster site for more details & updates on how to include the Google +1 button into your website!
So, what do you think of +1? Feel free to comment, or contact us to find out more about pay-per-click advertising!

How’s everyone feeling this week? Its been a exciting week at Clickr, with pool gaming and delicious Philippines food. We also spent time discussing on important topics such as, “Which Smart Cover color would you be getting?”
Yeah. I can't decide either.
In between debates on which iPad and cover to get, here’s our following favorites of the week:
No tweets at #RoyalWedding
Sure, it’s the grandest wedding held, however tweets won’t be allowed during the wedding itself, for the sake of security. What do you think, would you want to have guess tweeting about your wedding?
Could Apple be launching an iCloud?
Apple fans would salivate at this, having all your music available and online anytime, anywhere.
Delicious get bought over by YouTube
There’s something simple and “old-school” about Delicious, fortunately there’s life left in it after Yahoo! decided to give it up. Looking forward to see how this works out!
That’s all for the week. Have a good one and here’s looking forward to a new month ahead!
Happy Good Friday everyone! I love 4-day work week! Well, who doesn’t anyway?
