Installing “Add me on Google Plus” widget

It lets your blog visitors know that you have a Google+ account and prompt them to add you to their circles. It provides link to your Google+ profile, shows off how many people have you in their circles and even displays your stream (optional).

Just follow the steps below to add it on your Blogger blog.

 

I) Get your Google+ ID

  1. Visit your Google Plus profile page. Look at the URL in your browser address bar. The URL should look something like this:

  2. The green part is the Google+ ID. Copy it.

 

II) Configure your Google Plus widget

  1. Go to widgetplus.com (opens in a new tab/window).
  2. Click “Get widget” button to open settings panel.google plus widget
  3. Paste your Google+ ID in the required box.
  4. You can customize the widget -add the Google+ stream, title, change the font, colors, width, height etc.
  5. When you’re done with the customization, hit the orange “Get code” button.

  

III) Add the widget to Blogger

  1. Copy the HTML code provided in II.5.
  2. In Blogger, go to Design > Page Elements and click an Add-A-Gadget link. Select HTML/Javascript gadget and paste the code in the content box.
  3. Save and view your blog.

This is very nice but now its not working and site is not available

Greenlava April 21, 2012 at 8:38 PM    

@souno
Oh, that's too bad. Anyway Blogger recently added Google+ Badge to their list of gadgets. You might want to use that instead.

Vickie Ramage May 20, 2012 at 11:02 PM    

Doesn't work anymore.

Satinder Singh May 27, 2012 at 3:30 PM
