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 http://www.google.com/webmasters/+1/button/index.html and make your own.

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

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

Digg already bit mud when they changed the interface and working pattern. +1 have 50-50 chances.

I dont see it on this thread, or in the nav to the right, and i note that Digg is still 2nd in the 'Share' links...
    Your right that is on my to do list, but left is already gone. Left is around 10x more used then left...
      Presumably you mean under the 'Follow us' on the left? because Digg is still there under the 'share' links bit. Also you meant to say that main/in thread is 10x more used than left [I assume]. Do you have any plans to support the new Google+ social media platofrm? I can see these two causing some confusion if used together.
        oh lol wow, i meant right initially... i didn't even see that panel on the left [one of the problems of wide screen monitors i find, along with the annoyingly loooooooong lines of text that transform a previously 5-6 line paragraph on wikipedia into just 2 hard to read lines]
