    I think I just found a way to trick google +1 button.

    Today google decided to remove all the +1's that were provided from services such as plused.net and youlikehits.com because all clicks came from external websites.

    From what I understand google removed all clicks that were done when users used the href value of <g:plusone> tag

    I found a way to bypass this by letting users visiting the "advertiser's" website, clicking the +1 button there and then going back to my google +1 exchange service and click on verify button so they get their points :)

    I think this way the all google +1's will be from the same website without the use of href value.

    Do you think this will work? I think it will...:D

    The only problem is that there's no way to verify that someone actually clicked it from the remote site.

    Maybe if you owned the external site, you would be able to run a script or a referral id check to keep track of the actual clicks then?

    I already have a working test ready and it works :)

    The bad thing is that it requires the advertiser to include jquery and a a small javascript code on the page they want to +1. It currently works only on php but it is really simple to work with asp + asp.net as well.

    Yes. The advertiser need to include some javascript in their webpage. They send the visitor's data to my service and when the user of my service clicks verify it tries to find out if he clicked that website from the same ip. :)

    I think I need some people to test this.

    If anyone is using php in their servers and want to earn free coins for helping me figuring this out please PM me and I will give you more info. I think I can have this ready the next 2-3 hours.

    Maybe checking the google profile in the pluses tab. Has to be public though. Some sort of scraping would work without having to put any code on the websites that want pluses. But I guess it would be a lot more work.

    Interesting but I think that the profile is private.

    Yeah you just have to simply click edit on your profile for the pluses and hit show or something like that. That would work better in a mass scale if people want to be using this as a Fiverr gig. I think the end result would be more positive than someone having to go into their code and put a snippet.

    yes awesome idea. Also i would never add external script to my website for make it work with your system for G+1 etc.

    go to profile click +1 button and click edit and you will see this

    Show this tab on my profile - click check box and it is visible by others

    Rather G removed all clicks that came from one IP, that generates thousands of +1's to many different sites.
    The solution is simple - all clicks have to come from your site. To make it work, you have to use iframes, to call the button on the exchange site.
    Whe have this done. You can see it on GoOneUp.c*m

    Hi guys,
    after a major script update, the site is up again.
    Until now, the sucess rate was about 50%. Thanks to some messages from users, we found a way to increase the sucess rate of likes up to 99%.
    The downloaded file is rewritten, so you have to download and ftp it again.
    Because of the low success rate, all your points are 50 again (if you have less than 50).
    We appreciate any feedback or questions.
    Cheers

    Yep.

    Today we make final tests. You can add some sites and test it also. Hope it will work with no problems. We decided to work only with donates for now, so the point system will not function properly (main goal - more +1's :)).
