Don't know what the Google +1 button is?
The Google +1 button allows your site to be recommended by visitors to their friends. So if someone comes to your JimdoPage and they like it, they can "+1" it. The cool part is that when this visitor's friends search on Google, if your site appears in their search results, it will have an annotation that the first visitor +1'd it.
Because +1'ing a site is basically a recommendation to others, adding a Google +1 button can be crucial in having your site stand out in the thousands, or even millions, of sites across search results. You can think of it as a virtual, "word of mouth" recommendation.
Your next question is probably, "How do I put this on my JimdoPage?"
