How to add google plus to your blog or website? I am sure you have seen a lot of the +1 icons as shown above when performing a google search. By clicking the +1 button next to a website or blog post, you are giving it your public stamp of approval giving you easy access to share it, add comments, and send to your circles on Google+. It is similar to when you ‘like’ something on facebook. You are letting your friends know you ‘like’ it and we are hoping they will ‘like’ it too, or in this case that they will +1 it.
Google+ Circles allow you to interact with like minds in the same group. For instance, I have circles that include friends, blogs, acquaintances, etc. It allows you to share the content you want with that specific group. Obviously, Google is competing with facebook.
To start with adding a Google +1 icon to your website, you first need to get your Google+ page. Once you have added your page, go to Get Started on the left side under your icon. Scroll down to Connect your Website and click on Get the Badge. Now you can choose the style of badge or icon you want and it will display the code to add to the html of your website. I added the Small Badge to our website which you can see on the right sidebar towards the top. This allows users an easy way to add you to their circles. I also have a +1 icon on each of your blog posts. It’s a great way for readers to easily add the content they choose. Easy-peasy, right?
