Yes. google++, definitely.

Its success is probably partly because it looks at how many links point to
the page. If lots of people link to site X, then site X is probably (a)
really great and trusted by lots of people, or (b) really bad but lots of
people think it's great (M*tt's Scr*pt *rch*v*), so it'll show up further

Which reminds me of something I read in the PuTTY FAQ:
