Google Stars works similar to Pinterest and looks like Google Drive as well as an able replacement for +1 button. Source

Once the Google Stars chrome extension gets installed, the welcome screen enlists the following benefits:

  • Advanced Search
  • Beautiful Grid Interface
  • Drag and Drop UI
  • Auto Organization by Topic
  • Enhanced Security
  • Social Sharing

The extension then automatically collates history of topics that you’re fascinated with or stuff that has been bookmarked by you according to a date based timeline. Users can organize the saved bookmarks or add stars into the folders for easier access and then further opt to share the folders. The extension typically replaces the “bookmark” icon in Chrome’s omnibox another term for the address bar ensuring that users do not generate duplicate bookmarks by instead directing & marking new bookmarks into Stars.

Google Stars extension dashboard allows users to search saved bookmarks, engage with bookmarks by editing & socially sharing it with friends & followers as they organize their bookmarks using a Google Drive like folder system.

How much of Google Stars will actually implicate SEO is hard to say for now but one thing that Stars promises is it can better quality signal to Google than a +1 vote. +1s are public by default and Stars are private by default. Who knows in the days to come, Google may decide to integrate Stars as one of their many ranking signals in the near future. Until then we wait till they officially launch the handy chrome extension.

Owing to the on & off screen appearances in the Chrome App store, the installation file once downloaded needs to be dragged inside browser extension page from Tools > Extension. Clicking on the downloaded file may not successfully trigger the complete installation for the Google Stars Chrome extension.
