Google +1 Already Replaced Digg

Google +1 Already Replaced Digg

Always be up to Date subscribe to updates - June 1, 2011

On day one of having Google +1 I see many sites placing it on their posts. Tech-media is skeptical but the massive amount of people using Google services and have a login ad hand is just too huge to ignore. Add to this the fact that Google admits it will influence the search results over time… well since 75% of most traffic in North America is coming from Google Search, they already have a winner.

But when revising the buttons on each post, we and most other websites also revise the rest of these. We had Twitter, Facebook, StumbleUpon, Digg. Breaking down the figures… sorry Digg your out, and Google +1 (plus one) you get that spot.

I bet that most webmasters are going to do the same so I am super interested in the traffic stats for June 2011 for Digg. Let see if indeed people like me, just do not see the point in having a legacy button on my company blog.

Google Plus One Buttons for your website?

If you like a Google +1 button for your website, go to and make your own.

Then you can pick from 4 buttons  that go with it:

  • Small (15px)
  • Medium (20px)
  • Standard (24px)
  • Tall (60px)
