How to add Google +1 Button using the shortcode?

Just paste code [bws_googleplusone] into the necessary page, post or text widget for adding Google +1 Button or use a “display” parameter for adding another button(s).

For example:
[bws_googleplusone display=”plusone,share,follow,hangout,badge”]. You can change the buttons queue in “display” parameter as you want.

I want to change the position of plugin buttons on the page

In WordPress admin panel, please go to “Google +1” page and choose one of the listed positions: Before, After. Then click “Save Changes”.

I click the button and it turns red. Why?

For correct work of the Google +1 buttons do not use it locally and on a free hosting.

Why I don’t see the Follow Button and Google Badge?

Follow Button and Google Badge don`t work without Google ID. Just enter it on Settings Page.

I’ve entered Google ID, but nothing has changed. Why?

Please check the Badge type. Google Badge works incorrectly if Google ID don`t match with the Badge Type.

I have some problems with the plugin’s work. What Information should I provide to receive proper support?

Please make sure that the problem hasn’t been discussed yet on our forum (https://support.bestwebsoft.com). If no, please provide the following data along with your problem’s description:

Reviews

Nice plugin

I’m using this plugin with the other BestWebSoft social buttons plugins. It’s very easy to configure and buttons looks great! Even widget is available in free. It is great for your personal blog.

My Revised Review – Page Speed Issues

Here’s my original review of the plugin which I gave 5 stars to:

Works exactly like bestwebsoft says. No issues, easy to use and easy to set up. Limited options for customizing the button but still great considering what you get with the free version. You can check out what it looks like on my website http://www.theburgernerd.com and click on any article to see google +1 displayed at the top and bottom of the pages and posts.

Although it really does work I still had to downgrade my initial review because it seems this plugin significantly slows down page speed. I tested it numerous times and for Google dev. pagespeed test, I dropped on avg. 8 to 10 points on my mobile rating and 5 to 8 on my desktop scores. Although it saves some time putting the Google +1 button in manually, when you consider how important page speed is for Google rankings, it might not be worth it. The plugin is too “small” to warrant such a noticeable difference in page speed.
