We are proud to announce full support for Google’s +1 button beginning Monday, June 6th. As the leader in making sites social, we are committed to always offering the latest social technologies in the ever-changing social landscape. Gigya clients now have the option to add the Google +1 button to their website via the Gigya Share Bar.
Background on +1
Google’s +1 button is similar to Facebook’s “Like” button in that it enables users to give a stamp of approval on site content with a single click. Significantly, Google is taking into account the +1 button within its search algorithm. This means that the more users click +1 on your site, the more likely your content will be to show up in search results.
Integrating the +1 Button
With Gigya’s Share Plugin, adding Google’s +1 button to any website is as easy as checking a box. Once the button is integrated, users will be able to click +1 to recommend products, articles, videos or other content to friends. To learn more about how to integrate Google’s new +1 functionality, contact a Gigya representative today by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or give us a call at 650-353-7230.
