Better late than never, we finally added a button to our Home page and Blog that allows visitors to +1 our website on Google. (Take a sec to +1 us if you’re on Google+ by clicking on the g+1 icon on our home page and on our main Blog page.)
Although Google+ has a huge number of people signed up on their network they don’t tend to be very active, as compared to other networks like Facebook Twitter and Pinterest. That said, as the top dog in search engines, Google adds SEO weight (apparently) to websites having the +1 symbol.
Here’s the code for a simple G+ button:
<div class=”g-plusone” data-annotation=”inline” data-width=”300″></div>
<!– Place this tag after the last +1 button tag. –>
po.src = ‘https://apis.google.com/js/plusone.js’;
var s = document.getElementsByTagName(‘script’); s.parentNode.insertBefore(po, s);
