Google +1 buttons

Google +1 buttons have been available since March 2011 and are seemingly part of the Google social ranking criteria.

Google says: “Content recommended by friends (NDR Google account friends!) and acquaintances is often more relevant than content from strangers. For example, a movie review from an expert is useful, but a movie review from a friend who shares your tastes can be even better. Because of this, +1?s from friends and contacts can be a useful signal to Google when determining the relevance of your page to a user’s query.”
