I'm confused about Google+ +1 button. I have a web application and I've added a +1 button, but I'm not sure what URL I have to put on data-href.

It seems like you have to create a web page on your Google+ account and put this URL like data-href, and I've done so (data-href="https://plus.google.com/+mywebsitename"), but when you search the web page with Google, the number of +1 doesn't appear.

So I'm guessing that I should replace with: data-href="http://example.com", but I'll lose the few +1 that I already have.

Any idea of how to handle this? I'm not interested on having better SEO on Google+ page, but the web application page.

You should use data-href="http://example.com" for the +1 button on your site. You've been doing it wrong, so you were collecting +1 for your G+ page instead of your website!

Don't worry, I'm sure you can collect +1s again!
