    • 1 Google +1 and How it Works What is +1 and how does it affect me? • In the family of the Facebook “Like” button o Allows you to display a public “vote” for organic or paid search results that you think other people in the network should check out • +1 will give your site a potential boost in ranking o Think of it as a recommendation point = click or impression for a Google spider • +1’s or “thumbs up” can be attributed to a site ONLY if the person is logged into a Google account.#wm123
    • 1 Google +1 and How it Works Can everyone see +1’s? • Only users in the Google network • Only logged-in Google users • +1 recommendations will display in places throughout your Google network in real-time: o Gmail o Google Talk o Google Reader o Google Buzz o And more…#wm123
    • 1 Google +1 and How it Works What happens to my traffic with +1? • Personalized annotations next to your page result listing in search can increase: o Site Visibility o Targeted advertising Quality Score o Attraction to your search result description snippet (more compelling) o The chance & frequency that users will click through to your page#wm123
    • 1 Google +1 and How it Works How do I add the +1 button to my site and where do I put it? • Adding the button to your site is easy o Grab the snippet of code and place it on the pages you want it to appear o Implementing the code snippet is similar to Facebook’s “Like” button • Place the button on your page where you think it will be most effective o Above the fold o Near the title of the page o Close to sharing links o At the beginning and end of an article or story **Tracking Tips** +1 is a public button and provokes a public action. The more +1’s you aggregate, the more points you receive for a boost in ranking. This occurs because Google spiders are triggered to crawl your page each time a +1 is made on your site. Therefore, your SEO success has the potential to substantially rise with the introduction of +1’s!#wm123

    • 2 Implications of +1 on Search Google says Quality Score will not change Benefits to Paid Advertisers - Click-through Rate will potentially increase as your ads accumulate +1’s and attract the interest of searchers - As your ads gain popularity (and clicks) this will improve your ad’s quality score, leading to lower cost per click and higher average rankings CPC RANK#wm123
    • 2 Implications of +1 on Search Statistical learning is part of Google search • +1’s from friends and contacts can be a useful signal to Google when determining the relevance of your pages to a user’s query • Collaborative filtering will now take part in influencing search results • CTR can increase with ad accumulation and visitor appeal#wm123
    • 2 Implications of +1 on Search We will most likely see changes in the algorithm • In an effort to make their returns as useful and relevant to users, Google has stated that +1 will be a “signal” used in displaying search results: “This is just one of many signals Google may use to determine a page’s relevance and ranking, and we’re constantly tweaking and improving our algorithm to improve overall search quality. For +1s, as with any new ranking signal, well be starting carefully and learning how those signals affect search quality.” - Google • However, by including this human aspect in the ranking algorithm, some critics think it could be potentially risky. Just because something is “liked”, doesn’t mean it is relevant to your unique search. • Current issues to be aware of as Google tests +1: o Trust o Difficult to distinguish relevant sources o Spamming possibilities with +1 o Relevancy o +1’s won’t necessarily indicate relevant results for your search#wm123

    • 4 What are the Key Takeaways Know that +1’s are watched closely by Google Can +1 Be Manipulated? • No, because your +1’s will only affect those in your Google social circle and not non-signed in users • And no, creating 1mm profiles and +1’ing everything will not work, as Google will be able to quickly spot manipulation and spamming attempts#wm123
    • 4 What are the Key Takeaways Know how +1 can help you Learn What +1 Is • Understand +1’s impact and how you can best utilize it to your advantage • If you run PPC campaigns, understand how +1 can help (indirectly) to improve Quality Score “The way we measure Quality Score for your ads has not changed. We continue to use historical AdWords performance information, clickthrough rate (CTR), and other signals to calculate your Ad Rank and cost-per- click (CPC).” - Google#wm123
    • 4 What are the Key Takeaways Google will provide the recommendations when you want them • Even though the +1’s are public to the world, Google will look to the searcher’s social connections to help determine what +1 sources should be served and are useful to the searcher. • People in your Gmail • People in your Gmail/Google Contacts • People following you in Google Reader and Buzz • +1’s are working to promote the rise of social SEO o Integrating your social media efforts with SEO and PPC is proving to be a beneficial brand awareness strategy in the future#wm123
