SEO (Search Engine Optimization) helps businesses and obviously also individuals or any other group to be found in the Internet. And as long as people search for a product not knowing their name or a technology, not knowing its source or a solution not knowing …
Over a million websites use Google+ plugins — like the +1 button and the badge for Pages — to help visitors connect with their brand and share their content with others. Today we’re excited to announce a number of improvements to these plugins that make sharing and connecting even easier.
Easier to share from the +1 button
Starting today, it’ll be a little easier to share right from the +1 buttons all across the web. Now, after you +1 something, the share box will pop open right away, without an extra click. Add a comment if you want, choose the people you want to share with, and you’re done.
Easier to follow brands and businesses
When you add Google+ pages to your circles, it’s typically to follow their news and updates. That’s why we’re updating badges for Google+ pages to read “Follow.” With just one click, this button adds a business or brand to your “Following” circle, and if you want to customize which circle they’re in, you can do that too.
If you’re one of the many businesses and brands with a Google+ page, we’ve also put together a handy style guide (pdf) which includes recommended language and images for promoting your page.
Adding a badge for people, not just pages
We heard you! Now anyone (including Britney Spears!) can add a personal Google+ badge to their web pages, and let visitors add them to circles quickly and easily.
We’ve got lots more planned for the Google+ plugins, stay tuned!

This is a question we get often from our members – “How do I connect with someone from Favo.rs on Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn?” It’s easy, and here’s how to do it. When you see another Favo.rs member that you’d like to connect with outside of Favo.rs, just click on their picture to go to [...]
XeeMe was essentially built on crowd sourcing. This product would not exist like it is today without the hundreds of feature requests we realized in the product. XeeMe also grew to a very large extend based on the support of its users. We plan funding …
Pinterest is popping up all over the place. Is it just noise of some early adopter freaks? No it is not. Pinterest is a super fast growing content sharing platform that competes with Flickr, Picasa and the likes. Now recently Pinterest is coming very close to …
In theory it is easy because we know exactly what trust is – yet some people have a very wide range in interpretation and application. As a young boy I learned from my father: If somebody is bragging about being trustful or not doing any …
Today we’re launching the Google+ Developers page to help you stay connected to all the latest Google+ platform news, events, community, and more. As the lead of the Google+Developer Relations team, I’m really looking forward to meeting you there – add the page to your circles to join the conversation, comment on posts, and join our hangouts.
Our team will host regular hangouts to talk about the +Platform, your experiences with it, and share tips and tricks with the community. Our weekly office hours hangouts take place every Wednesday at 11:30am – 12:15pm PDT, and can be accessed from our Google+ Developers page. The +Platform team will also share Google+ developer events, conferences and hackathons, as well as photos and videos of the events. In addition, we’ll announce and discuss our +Platform launches on our page.
2012 is going to be a very exciting year for the Google+ Platform — I look forward to seeing you on our new Google+ Developers page!
