I understand the technical difference, but I mean for a user. I would be surprised if Google weren't thinking of using +1's on URLs in search rankings - that's motivation to show the URL-based one. However, the Badge one has more functionality, and will encourage people to follow you.
As a webmaster and/or user, this just doesn't make sense. They should be one and the same if the url is on the profile, and the publisher tag is in the website.+Bhagwad Park
I'm thinking the same. For now, I'm sticking with the one that shows 480 +1's, even though I'd rather use the page one! :(
