+1 button

The +1 button in Toolbar lets you start great conversations on the web. When you click the button, you're publicly recommending pages across the web. +1’s can help improve Google Search too, since you can see which pages your social connections have +1'd right beneath search results and ads.

When you +1 something, the +1 button on the Toolbar turns blue to confirm that you've recommended the page. Your +1 will be added to the +1s tab on your Google Profile. Go to your profile to manage all your +1’s and toggle the display the +1’s tab. Learn more about managing your +1's in the Google+ Help Centre.

Enable or disable the +1 button

Tip: If you use Google+, you can also share the webpage you +1’d with people in your Google+ circles. Go to Google+ and click the "Share on Google+" box. Enter your comments, choose the circles that you’d like to post to and click Share.

Like other content that you share, these +1's will appear in the streams of the people you share with. Learn more about sharing your +1's in the Google+ Help Centre.
