Removal of Google +1

Well that didn’t last long.  I guess nobody can really outsmart Google.  They are the God of the internet.
We’ve removed Google +1 features because many users were noticing their +1’s getting removed again.  We did our best to create a system where that wouldn’t happen but Google figured out a way to prevent this system too.

We have refunded all the Points that you spent on +1’s minus the number of Points you received from +1’ing others pages.

If you purchased Points via PayPal or Google Checkout exclusively for our Google +1 feature please feel free to email us at for a refund.

Thanks so much for bearing with us and experimenting.  We’ve got a great community and we wouldn’t be able to offer our services if it weren’t for the such great community support.

  1. Well that’s really terrible, maybe it was too early for such a system, it is understandable what google guys are doing, they’re trying to build a respective image for their +1 system.

    But in the end, maybe it is better to have one bullet-proof rating system, I hope they make sure to stay it that way. 🙂

  2. Oh, and thank you guys for providing this short pleasure, at least there were a few +1’s that didn’t get removed I hope they stay that way 🙂

  3. I don’t see a refund on my account just yet, but Im assuming it will take a few hrs?

    Thanks. Sorry that it didn’t work out.

    • If you didn’t receive a notification in your History page that says you got a refund then the # of Points you GAINED from +1’ing other pages was higher than the number of Points you SPENT on getting +1’s. This means you didn’t get a refund. 😦

  4. Guys, I lost 25% of all those clicks. But 75% success rate against google is amazing! You should definitely get back that service! When we can expect to get it back?

    Actually I would LOVE to use it even with 50% success rate. Just warn users that they can get not all clicks and thats all. Please get it back. Waiting for response 🙂

    • If it does come back it will have to be at least 90% accurate. =P We’re looking into what our choices are.

    • Well yeah, I had like 50-60% success rate, but I also think it is pretty much worth it!

      Maybe you should put up like a notice for people to not overdo it, and somehow rarefy their +1 clicking. At first I setup my sites with 10 points and about 70% of my +1 were gone the other day. Then I chose 2 or 3 points for my websites (I’m no tight-assed 🙂 ) And now almost all of the +1’s stayed 🙂 Also I tried putting inner pages of my websites instead of my root domain, because that is more natural I think. Maybe if people follow these tips, and try not to be greedy, we can have a better success rate and all be happy 🙂

  5. I have seen another website who are going to give google +1.
    But i am still unconfirm how it’s going.It’s exactly a same website like youlikehits,twiends but there google +1 feature is working.Can you like hits somehow solved this problem.

    • We’re looking into other possibilities.

      • but try to add like box for every page so people can easily like any page.
        Because youlikehits use a time waste like system.
        I think using likebox is a better solution for facebook like.
        I hope youlikehits take some immediate step to solve this.

      • We can’t use the Like box because Facebook has blocked our referral.

    • or not only that if youlikehits can add like box for every facebook page then people can easily like all page and not only that it can be a super fast to complete all like.
      I hope youlikehits add likebox for liking a facebook page.

  6. It would be cool to add alexa rank to websites tab somehow (basically just making people have the alexa plugin while surfing websites)

    @roshidiu – There is a fine line between making it easy to get points and making the likes/followers (or whatever) and protecting users by making the likes/followers look legit.

  7. As some +1’s do seem to have stuck, although not many, I’m happy with even 10% success rate as there is no alternative !

    Well organic growth of course, but i’m lazy 😉

  8. This site has turned out to be nothing but a hack! DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY!

  9. That’s why google is GOOGLE.

  10. I tried the Google+ again after my first ones dissapeared but this time I also ran the Websites view and google + at the same time. I then stopped the google+ and let the Website view run so that the ratio of views and clicks looked natural. I only did this for a few but the google+ likes are still there.

    I think any system you use will need to make the traffic look realistic for the google+’s to stick

    • Yeah, maybe some sort of +1 throttling would’ve worked but I don’t want to keep trying things out and have them disappear. 😦

      • You could always put a caveat on it saying that the +1’s may not stick and no refunds if they don’t and a recommendation to mix the +1’s with views. That way it’s up to the users if they want to take the risk

  11. Same here, i dont got the refund.. my acc is “TheCrazyest”. regards.

  12. has its +1 up, they are using the method of redirecting every user to the website page and then manually finding the button and then +1’ing it .Will this method work?

    Well Google is very vary of mass +1’s becoz they r trying to integrate it into their search algorithm , so they dont want fake sites showing on top of searches

  13. Site does not open.

    “The webpage at might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address”


  14. Something is wrong with twitter! Haven’t got any followers for more than 11 hours now although I’m using premium. What’s going on? I’m losing precious time!!!
