Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
We’ll be slowly rolling out +1’s, starting in English on Google.com. [..] Initially, +1’s will appear alongside search results and ads, but in the weeks ahead they’ll appear in many more places (including other Google products and sites across the web).
So I guess there will soon be buttons for publishers too.
But the +1 button isn’t just for search results. We’re working on a +1 button that you can put on your pages too, making it easy for people to recommend your content on Google search without leaving your site.

Whatever happened to having a quality site being all you needed? Sheesh, with the amount of plugins and buttons I need to make my site "popular", it's going to slow down the loading of my site.
We’ll also start to look at +1’s as one of the many signals we use to determine a page’s relevance and ranking
the way we calculate Quality Score isn’t changing (though +1s will be one of many signals we use to calculate organic search ranking).
My understanding is also that there will be a future extension of the +1 button to allow websites to embed it, but for now it is rolling out in the SERPs: in both organic and Adwords areas.
It’s called +1—the digital shorthand for “this is pretty cool.”
We’ll also start to look at +1’s as one of the many signals we use to determine a page’s relevance and ranking, including social signals from other services. For +1's, as with any new ranking signal, we'll be starting carefully and learning how those signals affect search quality over time.
