Property search site HotPads has incorporated the "+1" recommendation button from search giant Google on its home page, the site announced in a blog post Friday.

Similar to Facebook’s "like" button, the Google +1 button allows anyone to publicly recommend a particular Web page. Previously only available in Google search results, as of Wednesday website owners can add the button to their Web pages to help them "stand out" in search results.
