Google wants me to put Google +1 buttons on my blogs

Chris AbrahamI just popped into AdSense, as I do as obsessively as anyone online, and something new popped up:

Google +1 on Your Website

Recommendations
Add the +1 button to your pages
Adding the +1 button to your pages allows users to recommend your content to friends and contacts on Google search. As a result, you could get more and better qualified traffic.

How exciting!  It has all begun today! I clicked on “Get the code snippet” and here’s what I saw:

I am probably going to wait the week or so until someone releases an easy-to-use and easy-to-implement plugin for my WordPress and Drupal installs so that I don’t have to hack the template.

Any recommendations for Drupal, WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr, and WordPress.com solutions for those of us who want to add Google +1 ASAP to all of our fun sites and blogs?

  1. The social push for Google is needed, no matter where it comes from. It would be interesting to do a follow-up post and see how helpful the button addition was to these sites. Thanks for posting this, Chris.
