Google confirms SEO value in Plus One
The following snippet was displayed in our Adsense account this morning:
Does this mean the plus one is affecting searches carried out by people socially linked to your gmail account or does it mean there is a global SEO value in plus ones. Probably both so why isn’t the plus one button as widely spread around the web like the like button…
Also how would a plus one help a site achieve more qualified traffic. The only thing we could come up with is that maybe Google is adding juice for the original term a googler used to find your site and then went on to plus one it. If that user liked your site enough to click the button it must have been relevant to the search and of high quality, two major things the search engine strives to achieve in its SERPS.
