    Hi – like the tips, and always look forward to more, but am unclear on what this button is or does. Why do I want this on my blog? Thanks :)

    • Hey Kim, If you click the link it will bring you to a video that talks about Google +1. I hope that helps explain why you may want to add it to your blog!


  2. Thank-you! That would make it even easier :)

  3. If you already have show share buttons enabled in Blogger under design>page elements> edit blog posts then Google +1 should already appear, it did on my blog;)
