    Does anyone else think that +1 is part of googles answer to their drop in PageRank? Facebook appears to be the only PR10 site at the moment and most of their backlinks especially quality backlinks come from their like and share buttons.

    Although google has more backlinks, every fortune 500 company and their dog has a link to facebook through the share button. Where as googles backlinks although it is reasonably high quality don't have the same representation of high quality backlinks.

    Aside the fortune 500's nearly every university and scientific organization has a facebook share or like. They don't seem to be linking to google as much.

    Google must have known this pr drop was coming for a while so they instigated a way to try and fix it.

    Anyway just a possibilty.

    I think +1 is going to be the new bench mark for sites. They have already integrated +1 in webmaster tools. They are already analyzing the effect of +1 on the CTR of your site in the SERPs.

    Unlike other initiatives of google which failed miserably I think +1 is going to work big time. I am already looking for a bot to get more +1s

    A bot or a +1 service would be awesome right now. Get in early. I think I may start working on something.
