Google+ Your JimdoPage

Google Plus Icon

Google+ is one of the newer social networks on the block, and with the power of the world's top search engine behind it, it's gaining traction. With 400 million users Google+ is a great place for people to talk about and share your website. Anyone with a Google account can sign up for Google+ and start sharing with their "circles" — a circle is a group of people, like friends, family, co-workers, or teammates.


Google's social network is especially attractive for small businesses, which can have a Google+ page that lists their contact information, hours, and a link to their Jimdo site. Whether you're an artist, a photographer, a designer, or anyone else with something to share, you can benefit from giving your visitors another way to connect with you.

 

There are a few different ways you can include Google+ on your website and make it easier for people to share and recommend your site to their Google+ friends. We've outlined the three main options below (and included Google+ buttons for you to try out).

 

+1 Button

Anyone who clicks a +1 button on your site will immediately show everyone in their circles that they like what they see, and that they recommend checking it out. Your page will be listed under that person's +1 list, and their friends will see in Google search results that they liked your page. 


When adding a +1 button, you can use various sizes and choose whether you want to display a box that will show how many people have already clicked +1 on your site.

Share Button

When someone stumbles across something interesting on the web — like a cool product on your Jimdo site — they want to share it with the people they know. With the Google+ share button, they can share the great content on your page with their Google+ circles and also leave a comment talking about what they have found.

 

You also have the option to display how many people have already shared your page, so go ahead and show off how much people love your content. 

Google+ Box

With the Google+ box, visitors can follow your Google+ business page or add your personal Google+ profile to their circles. We've included several options for customizing the Google+ box to make it an attractive way for your visitors to connect with you. 

 

With the Google+ box, you can choose either a large or small box. The small box just has a follow link for your Google+ profile, and the large box shows who is already following you. 

How It Works

Log into your JimdoPage and select a blog post or page where you want to put a Google+ button. Add the new Google+ element, and choose which of the above button types you want to use!

 

You'll find more information about the new Google+ element in our Google+ help article. We hope this new feature is a helpful addition to your social media toolkit and brings more visitors to your site.

    Great feature. Jimdo is keeping up with the times. It will be greater too if Jimdo could change the footer feature to look more like their own website. It's rather sparse they way it is right now.

    Any info on how to include full working +1 custom image button?
    Kinda got it working to the point that it goes through all the process, all seems ok, but at the end google kinda does not count that +1.
