Google Rolling Out +1 Recommendations
Adding a new feature to its +1 content recommendation service, Google’s platform preview channel will now show recommendations for other content on your site. Google+ Platform Preview is where Google launches updates for the platform before they’re launched to the general public. “It could mean good things for Webmasters if that’s the case,” suggests WebProNews. “Recommendations for other content could help drive some pageviews.”
Google points to an example in the Chrome Web Store, where a user clicking +1 on the Gmail app might see suggestions for apps like Offline Google Mail, Google Calendar and Picassa. The recommendations will always be based on content from the same domain or subdomain as the +1 button, Google notes, while, Webmasters won’t need to worry about adding anything new to their sites, as it will become part of the standard +1 button package.
