These gadgets have been added to your Blogger dashboard and can be implemented with just one click. To get started, select “Add a Gadget” from the Layout tab of Blogger — these specific gadgets can be found under “Basics.” From there you will need to copy your Google+ ID (personal or Page) to configure the badge for your blog.
Although many website owners have already added the Google +1 button and badge to their sites, Google is tapping into its large Blogger user base — which isn’t surprising considering its recent integration history.
If you’re interested in reaching a new audience, or giving current readers new ways of sharing content, you could benefit from adding the Google+ gadgets to your blog.
