    Your WordPress Product

I’m a huge fan of Google’s new social network, Google Plus ( you can add me here ) – Its like the best bits from Twitter and Facebook wrapped in a nice clean interface.

I have had the +1 button up here on WPLift since it was released – Im not sure if I have had any direct traffic increase because of it yet but I’m sure it will become more important in future as Google moves more towards social recommendations in their search results. With that in mind I’m going to take a look at the available plugins to add the +1 button and your Google Plus profile to your site.

    Cheers Oli, these are really cool, i’m not sure if I’m just imagining this, but more +1 plugins seem to be popping up quicker than plugins for any other service – so I think Google are on to a winner here, everyone’s jumping on the band wagon!

  2. Good research… I was looking for plugin like googlecard… Keep it up:)

  3. does anyone know how i can autopost to Google+ from a WordPress.org site?
