Losing nearly ALL +1s on my Google Plus Page Wing Kei Ricky Lai 2/11/13 7:05 PM
Today I woke up to find that I have nearly lost all my +1s on my Google Plus Page. Now my G+ page has many followers but no +1s. This does not make any sense.
I have asked my followers and they said they haven't done anything, so its clearly a system issue.
What has happened?

My Google+ Page is 

and the website that I am using is:

I think it's a glitch. Similar things have happened before, and the numbers usually returned to what they should be after a while. I have pages that are affected too.

One of my sites also suddenly lost a couple hours ago 85% of its +1's. This is weird.

I lost half of mine :|

Something is definitely going on, I just checked the pages of some of the companies I work with, Hilton Hotels have 95,000 followers and are down to less than me at 396, Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group went down from 1600 to 124 and Aston Martin shot down from 9000 to 580!
 
Maybe this is a good thing and Google have created a new metric that makes it fairer and more accurate for all. I used to get upset looking at pages that somehow had 1 million+ +1s, never understood how that could be. Now that I know I am not singled out, I am a great deal happier :)

Same thing has happened to our Google+ page this morning - dropped from about 250 to just over 100 +1's over night - I hope it goes back up soon as it's taken a lot of work to build up our page!

Exactly the same thing has happened to me too
Re: Losing nearly ALL +1s on my Google Plus Page Ron Rombouts 2/12/13 2:58 AM
Same thing happened to me. Went from 17.000 to 7000 on www.google.com/+bizarbin  But I am sure it's a glitch and the numbers will return. If not then tomorrow I will be throwing eggs at the windows of Google HQ, feel free to join me! 
Re: Losing nearly ALL +1s on my Google Plus Page JohnA10 2/12/13 3:32 AM
Log out from Google, reload your site and you will see again your +1's. It seems a bug.
Re: Losing nearly ALL +1s on my Google Plus Page Paul Godbold 2/12/13 3:37 AM
I logged out and then logged back in, everything is still the same? I also checked with five other business pages and all of their numbers are down too

Lo mismo sucede por aquí .... mmmm


Re: Losing nearly ALL +1s on my Google Plus Page JohnA10 2/12/13 4:19 AM
Weird. I'm logged in using Chrome and I'm seeing this wrong +1's quantity, but if a load my site or the G+ page of my site with IExplorer or Firefox without being logged in, I see the right +1's quantity.  :\?
Re: Losing nearly ALL +1s on my Google Plus Page Malcolm Oakley 2/12/13 4:33 AM
Same for me today, 12th Feb 2013, website now shows G+=72 down from about 571 last night.

UK School Holidays

What's happening Google? Also Webmaster tools still reporting incorrect internal / external links.
A glitch, but now a glitch that's spreading from Webmaster tools to G+ now.

The same thing happened yesterday, but it was only a handful. I hope it gets back to where it was or I'm gonna have some 'splainin' to do.
Re: Losing nearly ALL +1s on my Google Plus Page SteD 2/12/13 6:07 AM
Same here, did not have that may to start with but now down to only 8, from 81 hope its fixed soon.
Re: Losing nearly ALL +1s on my Google Plus Page Sławek Kamiński 2/12/13 6:12 AM
For me, the problem shows only in Chrome. I have checked in Firefox and Opera and the + numbers are ok. That's weird. I wonder if it's the same for others?
Re: Losing nearly ALL +1s on my Google Plus Page Christina Blount Presnell 2/12/13 6:17 AM
It seems to have affected a large number of business sites, mine as well.
Re: Losing nearly ALL +1s on my Google Plus Page Nick Ker 2/12/13 6:57 AM
I am seeing a similar problem. It looks as if the count is only showing the +1s of the site, and not including followers of the G+ page.
Re: Losing nearly ALL +1s on my Google Plus Page nana23 2/12/13 7:02 AM
I manage two Google Plus pages and I lost about 90% of  +1's on both! When should we expect to have this issue corrected?
Re: Losing nearly ALL +1s on my Google Plus Page wasaweb 2/12/13 7:03 AM
This thread has been brought to the attention of Google employees, though I cannot say when or whether a response is forthcoming.

According to the posts here, it seems to be the case that (1) the number shown now only consists of +1s given to the Google+ page, and the number of followers (and shares) is missing from the total, and (2) this is affecting those using Chrome. It would be good to know if that is indeed the situation or not.
Re: Losing nearly ALL +1s on my Google Plus Page Sehrish Akbar 2/12/13 7:38 AM
Well My +1 count was +3200 and now its +451! I have 3,558 followers!

Page : https://plus.google.com/100716580643087947380/posts

I can see a huge difference in the number of people engaging with my page after this bug appeared!

Number of +1's on my posts also dropped!

Re: Losing nearly ALL +1s on my Google Plus Page Michael Merritt 2/12/13 7:56 AM
The page for the company I work for hasn't dropped quite as drastically...362 to 326.  And it's not just in Chrome for me, but also IE and Firefox.
Re: Losing nearly ALL +1s on my Google Plus Page Devin Wolfe 2/12/13 8:00 AM
i'v been effected as well i run a news page which had around 7,000 +1's now is down to around 2,136

Re: Losing nearly ALL +1s on my Google Plus Page Andrea Robson 2/12/13 8:40 AM
I've been trying hard to build up my Google+ following, and yesterday had 48 Google+ followers (I know only a small amount compared to most of you on here) showing in my sidebar widget. I looked this morning and now I've only got 8!  I thought maybe it was just a problem with the widget, so I checked my Google+ page, but I've only got 8 Google+ followers on my main page as well.  How can I fix this??  It's taken me ages to build up the followers.  Also, my number of +1's has drastically reduced, but I don't remember how many I had to start with.
Re: Losing nearly ALL +1s on my Google Plus Page Jennifer Regan 2/12/13 8:40 AM
I lost about 2,000 followers this morning.  What on earth is going on??
Re: Losing nearly ALL +1s on my Google Plus Page figlarz 2/12/13 8:45 AM
You should check your site on IE, not Chrome ;)
(IE shows +1 correctly)
Re: Losing nearly ALL +1s on my Google Plus Page Andrea Robson 2/12/13 8:58 AM
I don't have IE, but have checked on Safari and FireFox - both only show 8 follows :-(
Re: Losing nearly ALL +1s on my Google Plus Page Denny Jaconi 2/12/13 9:24 AM
Glad I am not the only one who is experiencing this. Woke up to find my company page with just 17 +1's.
