Google just rolled out three new experiements. You can join only one of these at http://www.google.com/experimental/index.html

———————————————————————————————————————————–

Google is always experimenting with new features aimed at improving the search experience. Take one for a spin and let us know what you think.

Your selected experiment: You have joined the +1 button experiment. Note that you can only join ONE experiment at a time.

+1 button This is your selected experiment.
Use +1 to give something your public stamp of approval, so friends, contacts, and others can find the best stuff when they search. Get recommendations for the things that interest you, right when you want them, in your search results. 

To participate in this experiment:

  1. Make sure you’re signed into your Google Account (required)
  2. Click ‘Join this experiment’
  3. Search for something you love on Google.com
  4. Click the new +1 button, and make your mark on the web

Your +1′s are public. They can appear in Google search results, on ads, and sites across the web. You’ll always be able to see your own +1′s in a new tab on your Google Profile, and if you want, you can share this tab with the world.

Please note, it may take a while before you see the button in search results, and it may occasionally disappear as we make improvements. Your feedback will help us make it better!
