Am wondering if anyone here has already used the Google Plus One button on their website, and whether it is having a positive effect on search results (only for google.com at this time).

I haven't done research on this, but my guess is that it's used for personalisation and social (sharing) stuff rather than the place on the page. If it has any influence at all, perhaps only if many people vote up or something like that.

If they would truly want input from the users on what links should be higher, they would add a -1 link too (right?) but I'm interested in investigation on this too.

Maybe it´s a little bit early to analyze the effects of +1 button in Google ...

I´m not sure if the effects could result to be positive or negative. But it will be interesting to see, if SERPs will turn out to be more personalized than before ...

That was my guess too. Am hoping someone can shed some light on this with actual numbers.

Please make this a new thread, as it has nothing to do with this one.

OK,
no problem

Hi,

This feature is related to socializing your website. I don't think it has anything to do with ranking, the main focus is to bring traffic to website.

Agreed, but getting traffic to your website could mean an increase in your rank. So indirectly it could affect it.

We're using it, but mostly because I'm afraid that if we don't we'll get left behind, as from what I understand Google will start including it as a factor in search ranking.
