Starting next month Google will introduce the +1 button and personal recommendations to display ads. The +1 button will begin to appear on AdSense for Content and AdSense for Mobile Content display ad formats, image, animated gif, and Flash. +1s will be one additional signal to help determine an ad’s relevance.
