    Looks like Google is cleaning up +1 points that are given from external sites today. That means, if you have been using external sites/services to get more +1 points to your site, it looks like you will have to start back on zero. +1 points that have been given from the actual page will probhably continue to stick around though.

    Youlikehits seems to have refunded all points spent on Google Plus points by the way (hey, that´s awesome), and are concidering to add Stumbleupon and Myspace following as an alternative.

    Google +1 is only there to be abused lol...

    1) marketers will use google+1
    2) few tech savy people will use google+1
    3) 95% of the internet wont care about google+1

    epic fail project if you ask me.

    I been using youlikehits and had 145+ yesterday

    As soon as I read this thread, I looked at my website and I only have 9+ google pluses.

    So for traffic to come to my website and plus it. I must be doing something right in term of providing content. right?
