This quick and easy tutorial will explain how to enable Google +1 Button with Blogger Share Buttons. If you are already using Blogger share buttons in your blog, you can skip step 1.

"+1" is often used as a digital shorthand for "this is pretty cool." It’s also a way for friends, contacts, and the rest of the world to find great things on Google search. Google launched the +1 button back in March as a way to help share web content and make search more personal and relevant.

For more information about the +1 button, you can watch this short video:

Step 1 : First enable share buttons for blogger editing the Blog Posts widget from Page Elements section.

Step 2 : Go to "Edit HTML". Click on "Expand Widget Templates"

Step 3 : Find this and remove it:

<b:include data='post' name='shareButtons'/>

Note : If you can not find above code, then skip that step.

Step 4 : Now add below code just above the </head> tag.

<script type="text/javascript" src="">
{lang: 'en-US'}

Step 5 : Scroll down to where you see below code:

<div class='post-header-line-1'/>

Step 6 : Now Copy below "Blogger Sharing buttons" code and paste it just below the above code.

NOTE: If you can't find <div class='post-header-line-1'/> in your template, paste "Blogger Sharing buttons" code just before <data:post.body/> .

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>
<div class='post-share-buttons' style='float:right;margin-right:10px;'>
<b:include data='post' name='shareButtons'/>

This will show blogger sharing buttons below post header in blogger post pages..But if you want to show share buttons below blogger post,then paste your code just after <data:post.body/>.

Also if you want to show share button in every page, then remove 2 blue lines form above code.

Step 7 : Now save your template and you are done.
