Rethink Your Share Buttons: Google +1 Already More Widespread Than Tweet Button

Share buttons have been around for a while and are designed to easily allow readers of your blog to share a post they like with friends. Rather than having to copy the link and create a new tweet or status update, share buttons allow for users to share something via Facebook or Twitter with a single click. The two most common share buttons are the Facebook “like” button and the twitter button with a bird icon. Chances are if you have spent any length or time browsing the Internet you’ve seen these buttons multiple times.

What Is Google +1?

Just over a month ago search engine superstar Google released its own version of a share button they call +1. Google +1 works essentially like all of the other share buttons in that it’s easily added to your blog and then an icon shaped like a folder with a “+1″ written across it is placed on the page. How it works is that a signed in Google accounts user is then more likely to see the page that received a plus one in their search results along with an annotation of the name of those users who pressed the +1 button. This in effect is every SEO professionals dream in many ways. If a user has a far enough reach than they can start directly effecting search results and cause a popular page to get more views faster.

The Shake Up

Bright Edge is an enterprise grade SEO analyzing tool that looks at some of the largest websites on the Internet and reports back information such as trends and suggestions for growth. According to Bright Edge, despite still only being a few months old the Google +1 button has already over taken the Tweet button in terms of both popularity and growth. The Bright Edge analysis found that Google +1 is receiving month after month a 33% increase in web placement and as of the end of June is featured on 4.4% of analyzed websites. The twitter share button, for comparison, was only featured on 3.4% of websites a full one-percentage point discrepancy.


All things told both websites are lagging far behind the adoption of the Facebook “like” button, which was featured on 20% of the websites on the Bright Edge test. Even so, anyone concerned with the use of share buttons on their website may want to place a +1 button along side that Facebook and Twitter button or they are missing out on potential traffic.

Facebook Backs Intel’s Micro Server

This Guest Post Facebook Backs Intel’s Micro Server was submitted by: Jon T Norwood. If you would like to Submit a Guest Post please see Submit Guest Post.

Virtualization has been king for many years. There is virtually no server farm (pun intended) that is not virtualized. Multiple multi-core CPU’s support many virtual servers, saving money over having to buy more servers. It is simple; no server, or PC for that matter, runs at 100 percent capacity 100 percent of the time. Performance may spike briefly, but the average capacity utilization is low. By installing a completely separate server on the same hardware and having it run simultaneously, doing a different job, the excess capacity, unused by one is used by the other. What Facebook has just announced flies in the face of that logic; it is going to install micro servers.

Honey, I Shrunk the Server

Micro servers are the next logical step in hardware evolution. Over the last decade, talk of “Quantum Computing,” or the science of using atoms to perform computation tasks, instead of transistors as is done now, has increased exponentially. The goal is to shrink computing circuitry down as far as it can go. Micro servers are the result of beginning to move in that direction by using smaller, low-power processors, and related design adaptations to create hardware significantly smaller than the previous technology generation.

Everything gets smaller and faster. Virtualization was a way of getting more servers out of the existing hardware that was a small as it could get already. Micro servers are much smaller, with as many as 12 servers in the space occupied by three standard rack servers now. These multi-core CPUs have as much as a one Terabyte of hard drive space, and they use approximately 65 to 95 watts per server.

Facebook to the Future

Facebook’s primary goal is more computing power for less power, but it is not its only goal. In the current model, if a rack server fails, several virtual servers are lost. Micro servers can run a single server, with the same efficiency, and if one is lost, only one server goes down, which increases security, reliability, and also productivity, although micro servers described above are not the smallest servers. Facebook has admitted to testing the new servers, using Intel chips. Intel has announced that it will develop CPUs running on as little as 10 watts of power, and are slated for release later this year. These new ultra-small, ultra-low power servers can also be virtualized to squeeze even more gain from the design.

Software vs. Hardware

Rather than being a fight between virtualization and micro servers, this is a conflict between one phase of technology and its next iteration. The smart phone and tablet industry are partly responsible for this trend, forcing chip makers to drive down size and power consumption for CPUs to allow the smaller, full service computing platforms to run well. In fact, Intel’s planned 10 Watt CPU will be based on the Atom processor line. This acceleration of computing evolution is simply the evolution of hardware toward its final point; the end of Moore’s Law.
