It’s hardly been a month since Google’s+1 button was out and it is already common on major Websites. The +1 button is now more widespread than Tweet button. BrightEdge, who is an SEO platform enterprise developer studied about 10,000 sites out on Web sand found 33 percent placement for the Google +1 button in the past few days. The company says that +1 button is not on 4.4 percent sites up from 3.6 percent in the month of June. On the other hand, the Twitter plug ins are shown in just 3.4 percent of sites.
Both Twitter and Google are trailing behind Facebook whose ‘Like’ button is seen on 20 percent of sites front page. The chart shown below shows Twitter’s plug in button as Twitter Share but Jim Yu, the BrightEdge CEO calls it Twitter Tweet button.
‘Like’ button of Facebook turned up on about 50,000 sites a week after it was launched in last April. In just one month, the number rose to 100,000 sites. On the other hand, Twitter’s Tweet button came in August.
The study has also noted adoption for the links to Twitter feeds or Facebook Pages on the front pages. These links are more famous than the buttons. However, more than half or 51% of sites still don’t have a link for Twitter or Facebook on the front page.
