    I understand that if you abuse the google +1 system that you are leaving yourself open to the possibility of having them removed.
    However i only had like 5 unique visitors +1 my site. Fair enough 2 of those people were myself, but this surely wouldn't warrent having them all removed. I had only like 10 pages on my site +1'd out of a total of like 300 unique and indexed article pages.

    How were the +1's obtained? Unique visitors going to your site and clicking the +1 button?

    Yes. 3 were acquired that way completely natural from the search engines. The other 2, were 2 google accounts i owned and i just logged in and +1'd 3 pages each with them on my site.
    In my google webmaster account, it now says i have 0 +1'd . Whereas yesterday i had about 10 pages +1'd in total from 5 unique visitors (2 of which were myself).

    There are enough threads in BHW (some even 2 months old) that have proof that G is banning all illegitimate +1s coming to a page.

    The +1 given to http://www.domain.com will not be visible on domain.com and vice versa .

    So,+1 treats both URLs as different sites.

    So,I would suggest you to check whether you had +1 to www or not.

    @ovizunstore The Unique ip thing is not true.You can give as many +1 for a single URL from same ip.

    I don't know, I am still new to the +1 and it seems to be the most complex thing that Google has made to date. Still can't get the hang of it.
