On the site, I would like to require users to +1(google plus) atleast one of the pages to be able to access the website content.

Is there an ASP.Net control/code that would help achieve this functionality?

i cant find any documentation on it, try googleing "return value from google+1"



I think the second website might show you if the person added it already, it returns something from +1

Hi,

As far as i know, there is no straight ASP.NET Server Control to do that! Infact, not for any other Social Plugin!

So, you may have to design your own stuff, which suits your needs!

simply modify the +1 code so that it first saves something on your website that indicates that it was +1'd then call the +1 code and then you can check the status of if in the users profile that had them plus one something that allows them continued access.

As far as api goes,  looks like there is none,  you can track if someone clicked the button from your site by recording the outbound data from the site.  Apart from that,  your best bet is to write a letter to google.

I know with their ad policy,  it is against rules to make ppl click google stuff
