I have had a +1 Box on my homepage for the last few months.

Up until this morning i had an amazing 13 +1's.

Today is seeing a jump, i have 25 right now, and they go up 1 or 2 an hour.

Can anyone think of an explanation for this. I I being target by some spam ring, i mean you'd need many multiple accounts to do this.

Or does good only show the +1 to a sample of people in the serps, and they recently increased this?

Cheers! Dave.

In webmaster tools under "+1 Metrics" then "Activity" you can see "New +1s from your site" vs "New +1s from other sites". I'm under the assumption that "other sites" is exclusively SERPs at this point.

I'm getting around 15 +1s from "other sites" per day on average right now for my site, but havn't seen a jump as of Oct 18th which is the last day of data in WMT.

Well I've never used these social-networking buttons, and don't know much about them. But it's my impression that if your button gets clicked by someone who has a lot of followers, then some of those followers might also come to your site and click it too. Could that explain what you're seeing?

Same thing here. 14 year old site, had 3+'s for the last 4-5 months, today it jumped to 7.

Could it be "better reporting" from Google's side?

+1 is at 40m in recent reports... quite a way to go to hit fb's 500m...

Hit 41 this morning for my homepage that's 13 in 3 months then up 28 in a day.

Hopefully this will make some positive effect on serps if it continues.

I'm guessing they are being shown much much more in serps, sudden change overnight.

The +1 Button and Google+ are two different things.
