    Google is making a big new push into social with a feature called ?+1? that is similar in purpose to the Facebook ?Like? button, but integrated directly into the world?s biggest search engine.Starting Wednesday, users who opt into the http://www.google.com/experimental (and soon everyone else) in Google Labs will start seeing a +1 icon next to each link in Google search results.
    Google defines this action as a ?public stamp of approval,? and it is exactly that. When you +1 something, your name becomes associated with that link ?in search, on ads, and across the web,? according to the company. It also shows up in a feed on your Google Profile, which is required to use the product.

    Well your website can track how many people have +1 your site .
    I bet there will be some kind of filter that will order higher +1 sites to the top.
    I'm sure other sites will track how many +1's a site has.
    hmmmm

    Countdown to someone selling +1 spam to "boost your SERPs" has begun.

    I've been doing this since the announcement actually just in case, lol. I've already got my 4 google accounts +1'ing every single page for my main site, although google has 4000 of them index, ugh.

    having a new phone number every day and using your bot to verify SMS is not that hard

    That's going to be interesting! I'm especially curious in how this will affect rankings.

    I'm betting this will bring in more business for AdWords.

    It is interesting to see G doing a copycat of a prominent FB feature - signs they are feeling the potential disruption by FB. However, I wonder if +1 will be become a ranking factor by the search algos.
