Google adding a +1 button to search results

Posted in Google by Conner Flynn on March 30th, 2011

+1 is making its way into Google search results. This means that soon you will be able to “rate” links or ads you find useful and this will be used to tell your friends about the value of that site. Recommendations are filtered to make them as relevant as possible, while people within your social sphere (Gmail etc) get a higher priority.

This will no doubt help Google to improve their social network side and maybe stick it to Facebook just a little bit. The +1 button will start with English Google search and ads soon. Me? I give it a -1. Are we replacing relevancy with popularity? Probably not since Google wouldn’t want to kill it’s moneymaker, but still, this seems like a road better not taken. Popularity does not equal relevancy. I guess we will all see how this goes.

Wii Game Ando Kensaku uses Google search results

It’s a scenario old as Google itself. You have an argument and you settle it by comparing the number of Google search results. You wouldn’t think they could make a whole Wii game inspired by it, but they have done just that.

The game was developed in cooperation with Google and players have to choose which of the several search terms is most popular. There are 14 mini-games in total. Chances are it won’t be released outside of Japan, but for those in the land of the rising sun it will be out on the 29th of April.
