Track your +1s in Google Analytics and Webmaster Tools

After announcing +1 buttons to Google search sites globally, the Google team announced release of Analytics reports that show you the value +1 buttons bring to your site.

The report will bring you several perspective on how +1 buttons add value to your site:

  • First, +1 metrics in Google Webmaster Tools can show you how the +1 button affects the traffic coming to your pages.
  • Finally, you can also see how users share your content using other buttons besides +1 by using Social Plugin Tracking in Google Analytics. Once you configure the JavaScript for Analytics, the Social Engagement reports help you compare the various types of sharing actions that occur on your pages.
