By adding a Google+ Badge to your website, you’re making it easier for your readers to share or +1 your content on Google+. They can also add your Google+ Page to their Circles directly from your site.
Badges are a great way to promote your brand across social media platforms. Google recently looked at the top sites using the Google+ Badge and found that, on average, it accounted for an additional 38 percent of followers.
These new features are available in Developer Preview and will be rolled out to all users soon.
