Just today Google announced a great new tool, a +1 button that you can install on your store’s pages, this button lets people who visit your site recommend the page they are visiting.
“+1 buttons let people who love your content recommend it on Google search ” – Google +1 Button Page
We have put together a guide on how to install the Google +1 button in your store and then also how to set it up so that if you have Google Analytics installed in your ProStores store it will track it.
Here we go!
- 1. Open the Page Template Manager and save a baseline for the Header template then open it and select Source Editor
- 2. Locate this tag
</head>in your header template. Press enter a couple times to create a couple extra lines of space just above the /head tag.
- 3. Paste in the following code to enable the +1 button:
then just below that put this code in to track your +1 clicks in Google Analytics:
(Analytics code written by Yoast).
- 4. Next step, pick your +1 button size
- 5. Find the locations on your store that you would like the button to show up and paste one of the 4 codes above in.
Not only will the buttons show up on your store’s pages, but if you get enough votes, how many google won’t say, the +1 button will show up in the search results next the link to your site!
