Add Google+ Share Button To Your Website/Blog

 Add Google+ Share Button To Your Website/Blog
Another useful tool for social media expansion has been developed by Google+, it is called the Google+ Share Button, it is actually a bookmarklet that allows you to share your articles and articles on other sites that you like to Google+, just like you would with a Facebook Share or a Twitter Tweet.

Google+ had been missing the Google+ Share Button, it was something they needed to add to stay in competition with Facebook.Previously you could only +1 an article and had to share manually.Now you can directly share an article or a blog post using the Google+ Share Button.

Here is the code for the Google+ Share Button, which you can add to any part of your website or blog template.It will appear wherever you place the code.
<!-- Place this tag where you want the share button to render. -->
<div class="g-plus" data-action="share" data-height="24"></div>

<!-- Place this tag after the last share tag. -->
<script type="text/javascript">
  (function() {
    var po = document.createElement('script'); po.type = 'text/javascript'; po.async = true;
    po.src = 'https://apis.google.com/js/plusone.js';
    var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(po, s);
To add the Google+ Share Button to a Blogger Blog, all you need to do is go to your HTML EDIT page and place it inside the blog post or under the footer of every blog post.

To make things even simpler, you can just add a Widget, and insert the code mentioned above to get the Google+ Share Button.

A similar process can be followed to add the Google+ Share Button to WordPress Blogs.Make sure that you share this on Google+ and circle us on Google+
