I wrote a little Module for Joomla 1.5 that supports the new Google Plus One Button for your Joomla Website without working in the code or change anything in the template.
Download for Joomla 1.6
Here you can find the Download and Documentation for the Google +1 Button Module for Joomla 1.6.

- show total +1 counter ON/OFF beside the +1 Button
- set a target URL for the +1 Button or keep the default (the page the button is embedded)
Joomla 1.5, Version 1.0, released June 02 2011
- change size of the Google +1 Button, small, medium, standard, tall
- add custom CSS with the +1 Button
