HOW TO: Add Google’s +1 Button On Your Blog


Here it is finally, earlier Twitter surprised us with the new ‘Follow’ button, Facebook with ‘Send’ button, and now Google’s +1 button going viral on several famous blogs.

Google's +1 Button Recommendations

By adding +1 to your pages you can make your websites and blogs stand out. +1 buttons let people who love your content recommend it on Google search.

When a signed-in Google user is searching, your Google search result snippet may be annotated with the names of the user’s connections who’ve +1’d your page. If none of a user’s connections has +1’d your page, your snippet may display the aggregate number of +1’s your page has received.

Adding Google’s +1 Button On Your WordPress Blog

Google's +1

Place this tag in your head or just before your close body tag. Edit header.php file.

<script type=”text/javascript” src=””></script>

Now, place this tag where you want the +1 button to render. Most preferably single.php file.


Adding Google’s +1 Button On Blogger Blogs

Just like WordPress, paste the following code before </head> tag. Go to Edit HTML and search for head tag.

<script type=”text/javascript” src=””></script>

Now to place the Google +1 in the post area, go to <div class=”post-header-line-1″/> or <data:post.body/> and place the below code immediately after it

<div style=’float:right; margin-right:10px;’>
<g:plusone expr:href=’data:post.url”></g:plusone>

Now, save the template!
