    As the title says, I am wondering how much data google can get from a website, if I install a google +1 button on my website.

    I dont use google analytics or webmastertools for this website, and I want google to get as little data from the website as possible (but I still would like to have a +1 button).

    Google can get as much data as it gets from Analytics code.

    Are you in tech niche? If not, that button is going to be useless.
    Otherwise, consider creating a custom Share button, that doesnt execute any Google supplied JS.
