  1. Hi Ravi

    That’s a very clear explanation of adding a Google+ badge to your site.

    I have to confess I don’t have one on there – I got in rather a mess with Google profiles because I had different gmail accepts and somehow ended up with more than one profile.

    Sorting out the tangle is somewhere on my long “to-do” list, but you’re right – it’s an extremely important platform.


    1. Hey Joy,

      There is nothing to get confused about. You just have to put the URL of the profile you want to show at your website. I know due to different businesses we have to create more than one profile, but the point is simple here.

      Provide a better platform for your readers to connect with you through your website only. Adding a Google badge will be great. Your audience can find you on Google plus within one second. Just one click and you will be in the circle.

      Thanks for stopping by.
      Enjoy your day.
