How To Add Google +|Share Button Onto Your Toolbar In IE, Safari and Chrome.

How To Add That Little Red Google + Button To Internet Explorer.

HubPages has now added the Google+ button for us. I'm so glad.
I do have the button g+ on my toolbar and it works just as well for placing hubs you like on Google+. You can have it too if you have the Google toolbar. I have Google as my default search engine and have the toolbar. If you have the toolbar, you will find on the Google toolbar a little wrench to the right, click on the wrench and click ABOUT GOOGLE TOOLBAR and click SHARE.
You will find under share all kinds of places you can share the article you are reading or have written whether it’s a blog or a hub. I don’t know if you have to make Google your default search engine or not or if you can just put the Google toolbar on without it being the default engine. I have just always used Google on Windows Internet Explorer.
You will find below how to add the Google toolbar. You will also find how to add the g+ to Google Chrome and Safari.

Here are some of the different share items in Internet Explorer.

Blogger

Deliciours

Digg

Facebook

Gmail

Google+

Google Reader

Hotmail

Linkedin

Mail

Adding Google To Your Toolbar.

There are many more sites than what I have listed here. Just put a check mark in the site you want to show up on your toolbar. Under VIEW MORE SERVICES, there are more sites.

When I make a new hub I hit the little red button right away. I never use Facebook.

When you're viewing something you like all you have to do is click the Google+ or another button and it will be placed right on those sites. You do have to be signed into your site, whether it be StumbleUpon or G+. I think this button is so handy. The extra buttons can be used to spread your hubs around for more views.

Your Google toolbar should show up at the top of your browser. If it’s not at the top of the browser, go to VIEW ~ TOOLBARS and make sure there is a check in Google Toolbar.

Hope this helps Hubbers that would like that little red button back.

Adding the G+ To Chrome.

If you go to the link below and look down the page you will find the red G+ button to add to your Chrome toolbar, click it and it will appear to the right on your toolbar. The G+ button is not very bright, but it will show up next to the marks you see in the photo on the right. You can also add more buttons like Pinterest.

On your Customize and Control Google Chrome on the right (three orange/reddish lines) click it and go to Tools and click Extensions and you will see the different sharing buttons you have downloaded.

How To Install Google Toolbar On Safari

To place the google + on Safari open your Safari go to http://www.bbshare.com/.

On the right side you will see Google Toolbar for Safari, at the bottom there's a download now in red click on that. When the box comes up click OPEN and then click INSTALL. This will install the Google toolbar on Safari and on that bar will be the Google + button for sharing any page you would like to share on GOOGLE +.

      These are good tips for adding G plus. I just share stuff directly on G plus when I am logged in, but I am sure many would appreciate the sharing button.

      Great information. Since I get the mysterious feeling that people are slowly abandoning the Facebook ship, I think it is time I diversified my social media portfolio. I too use Google Chrome for my browser so I think I will check this out.

      It's absolutely unbelieveable that hubpages doesn't use G+. G+ is a newer social network that's growing fast. It's only owned by google. You know, the people that send the vast majority of hubpages' traffic. Just tonight I had someone come to my page and say "Sorry I couldn't share your post hubpages doesn't have a G+." Sorry I'm ranting :D haha Good to see you again moonlake and good post!

      There is strong evidence that Google + votes are now included in the ranking factors of a site or page. Hubpages should add G+ button.

      Thank you for the instructions, I believe Google+ is becoming so important to online business marketing, while Facebook seems to be less vital from a business perspective. Perhaps HubPages needs to rethink?

      Moonlake, I wish we could get the G+ button back on our hubs, but I appreciate you teaching us how to get around that by placing it in our toolbar. I did not realize the other options would pop up. Always love learning something new. :-)

      Thanks for the info on G+. I am on it, but understand nothing about it, and rarely use it. I think I just installed it, but I'm not sure. I would have thought that after all these years, I'd be more aware of how it all works. Not so!
