Google +1 is a marketing ploy more than a true social sharing of information. Google has said it may have impact on the organic rankings, but in reality it is the push on the advertising side that I think Google is more concerned.
_ absolutely correct
The only logical reason is the increase in click ability thus increased revenue. on the other hand Google has now their Facebook Page so what does that mean - will Google be effecting the Facebook ad sales and conversion - or will day simply share visitors visiting and using both simultaneously? We know Bing is facilitating web search on Facebook but be serious - looking at the Bing interface - they want you to stay as well -= don't they?
_ It also continues at the bottom of the article it says:
Have Google's efforts to build up their Places pages stalled? Does Larry see this as another way to get Google users to do more work for them? Even if this is a failure and a feature they eventually pull back - it will have generated millions of account sign ups - remember Google Profiles have to be public or be deleted by July 31.
The most important part at the end reads Google Profiles have to be public or be deleted by July 31. Guess what claim or lame is the motto now What a way to knock on doors and ring the prospect NOW
PS: All fake location and phone numbers public are certified - all others who claimed location for geo tagging reasons - dead ducks. Verticals like to hear that: Contractors
