This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Are you trying to track how many users have clicked a "+1" on your site, when a user clicks "+1" on your site, or if a user arrived at your page by following a link posted at https://plus.google.com ..? – danlefree Dec 22 '11 at 1:33

Solutions also not related to Google Webmaster Tools? Because they do give insight in +1's

I believe its possible now. https://developers.google.com/+/plugins/+1button/#plusonetag-parameters

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://apis.google.com/js/plusone.js">{parsetags:'explicit'}</script>
<g:plusone callback="scPlus"></g:plusone>
<script type="text/javascript">
    function scPlus(data) {
        if(data.state == "on") {
            // Do Stuff Here
            alert("G+ "+data.href+" +1'd "+data.state);
        } else {
            // Do Stuff Here
            alert("G+ "+data.href+" -1'd "+data.state);

According to Google this is not possible as of 8/31/11 at least.

A hacky workaround would be to request the google+ iframe html and then parse the # out.
