Google Re-Ranking Search Results Using +1 Button Data?

I guess you guys know what this means, right? It means you'd better be clicking on them +1 buttons below each of our news items! big grin

"Google will study the clicks on +1 buttons as a signal that influences the ranking and appearance of websites in search results," a spokesman wrote. "The purpose of any ranking signal is to improve overall search quality. For +1’s and other social ranking signals, as with any new ranking signal, we’ll be starting carefully and learning how those signals are related to quality."
