Is there a way to +1 something via a URL, just like you would with Twitter or Facebook?


e.g.

With Twitter you have:

http://twitter.com/home?status={url}

With Facebook you have:

http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php?u={url}&t={title}

With Digg you have:

http://digg.com/submit?phase=2&url={url}&title={title}

Is there also a way to use Facebook "Like" in the same way? If yes you could answer ot my question: webmasters.stackexchange.com/questions/6218/… –  Marco Demaio Aug 20 '11 at 15:38

You can share something via the following URL, as per the documentation:

https://plus.google.com/share?url={url}

or alternatively

https://plusone.google.com/_/+1/confirm?url={url}&title={title}

This is the Google+ equivalent to the Facebook and Twitter methods you’ve posted above. Unfortunately, this won’t +1 the link, only share it. I’m not very clear on the exact difference between these two actions, since the above actually loads a page which says

You publicly recommended this as {your name here}

– which sounds awfully like +1’ing. However, submitting the page verifiably only shares the link on Google+, it doesn’t add it to the person’s “+1’s”.
