How to Add Google +1 to Increase SEO
On June 1st, 2011, Google expanded the range and scope of their Plus One button. Instead of just limiting the +1 button to their organic search engine results pages, they now allow webmasters to place +1 buttons on their websites.
In today’s post, we will cover step-by-step how to implement the +1 button on your individual website. I will discuss how to avoid a potentially hazardous result associated with using Google default code. The simple workaround I will reveal also carries the benefit of allowing you to control which URL is being +1′d and registered in Google’s organic search results.
The code and process is very simple.
Place the code below in one of two places on your website theme or website:
1. Just above the closing </head> tag; or
2. Just above the closing </body> tag.
