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?

    Chris,
    Just installed Plus One, which is the exact title of the plugin in WordPress. Works Great.

    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.
