    So my website is linked with a Google+ page and I have more than 200 followers(+1's) on that G+ page, but on my website near the G+ button it says 900 +1s. Now i don't know why is that, it just appeared in a day, I didn't do anything on purpose for that to happen so now I'm worried about Google punishing me for something I didn't do.

    Any idea guys? Did google punished anyone for stuff like this?

    edit: To note, this happened on the english domain of my website, my local language one only has 67 g+'s. Both domains use same database because i only wanted to change the text ofc on the website with these 2 domains. Also when i hit a G+ button on a single page/post on my website(website.com/singleblabla) it doesn't recognize it as single page/post but as a root domain (website.com) instead of (website.com/singleblabla).

    Its probably negative seo, and yes... it might have a negative effect on your website

    removing the button will not help if the +700 appeared using software. I'd say keep the button and keep an eye on your rankings and backlinks - be ready to do some work if you notice spammy backlinks appear.

    But if I remove the button then they won't be able to do it again, right?

    Maybe contacting Google support would be a good idea now?

    Did your website got a penalty or something after that? Also how much +1s did you got

    I guess i could try to get more followers on G+ site atleast to get them to 300.. so it looks natural? Even thought thats still 600 g+'s more than real followers.

    well if your G+ page is active enough and all of that 200 followers of yours like your every post, the result is different in your website. 5 +1 on your single post in G+ page = 5 +1's on your website. This is only my observation, but i think the +1s on our website is the total number of +1s we get on all of the posts we have on our G+ page.

    Wow thanks so much for the explanation, if that's true than it's ok. And when all +1's from G+ page posts come together they do form around 900 +1's.
