Google Plus Metrics In Webmaster ToolsSome folks in the Google Webmaster Help forums are asking what happened to the +1 metrics within Webmaster Tools.

The feature that has been within Google Webmaster Tools since June 28, 2011 is gone. Why?

Well, Google said they are removing it. They said in late September, that +1 Reports in Webmaster Tools is also going away on November 14th. They wrote:

We introduced +1 Reports in Webmaster Tools to help publishers measure +1 activity on their pages. Given that webmasters now use Social Reports in Google Analytics to get a wider view of social activity (including +1’s), we'll be discontinuing the stand-alone +1 Reports on November 14. Measuring social media remains a priority for Google Analytics, so stay tuned for future improvements.

So now if you login to your Google Webmaster Tools you will not see the +1 Metrics option.
