I am going to keep an open mind about the Google +1 Button. What about you? I am not sorry that you are not able to interact with me on this topic in my website right now. I decided to cleanse the site of blog software a few weeks ago. Do you believe that I actually noticed a change in the type of visitors that are now coming to my site from doing that? I believe that I might be seeing an improvement after having taken out the blog plugin. It could be a pure coincidence but I am happier that I am making this into a website again without Web 2.0
Back to Plus Popularity. Is this type of technology alien to Google? I don't believe so. Many people have not realized that Google already has a voting system that has been implemented on Youtube. They should have plenty of experience with the vote button by now. Take a look for yourself. I am going to embed a video here but in order for you to see the vote buttons you have to click on the Youtube Logo "Watch on Youtube" button to open it up in Youtube itself. The reason you should do this is because it will answer some questions you might have about technical sites. I believe most people who are technical people will not be using it because they don't have the time.
