The underground mommy blog forums are organizing click groups as we speak so I figured something was up. They were working on google's block domain a few months ago and now it's +1'ing. They own twitter and facebook, now it's google's turn.
If your niche is: recipes, cooking, parenting, coupons, organizing, gardening, crafts, saving money/frugal, diy, fashion, homeschooling, blogging (and moving into seo and social media marketing), heads up cause you're about to be hit with a 2x4.
LOL, I almost pissed my pants laughing in front of my computer at work.
On a serious note, how the hell did we go from a world of indexing HTML pages to a world of tracking absolutely every move a person does on the web. 10 years it took. Man the future is coming upon us so quick.
As for the social tracking plugin in G Analytics, it sucks that we have to implement extra code, to make it work with FB, Tweeter and other (crap) buttons. Professional webmaster will do it, but amateur ones won't waste their time. And will eventually end-up loosing more and more in the SERPS, by consistently missing-out on the new signals that the big G starts to use in its SERPS.
