Google +1 Adds Recommendations to Search Results

Google has had a real-time search option for quite a while now. Real-time search pulls in results from social media sites. Results from social media sites can provide some insight into what other people think are helpful or useful links. Today, Google announced a new search element that they're calling +1. +1 will allow people to recommend links in search results by clicking a +1 icon. Over time the number of times +1 is clicked will influence the search results you see. +1 is currently available to people with Google Profiles and will eventually be an element of all Google search experiences. Learn more about +1 in the video below.
