The new Blogger widget option will make it easier for bloggers to connect their blog to the audience. The Google+ Community Badge will be automatically displayed next to the blog.
The update was announced by the Blogger Google+ page. It will allow bloggers to insert a Community badge by using the ID, which is found at the end of the URL of the blog. There's no need to own or moderate a community for embedding the badge. Moreover, blog owners can insert as many badges as they want & are not forced to choose between Star Trek & Star Wars.
To add a badge to your blog, open the Blogger dashboard and click "Layout" button. Then, click "Add a gadget" and choose "Google+ Badge" from the popup window. Select "Community" as the badge type.
After making all the changes, click "Save" and the badge will be live. Each community badge has:
- Number of members
- Direct link to the community
Since the community badge automatically updates, you do not have to insert a new one every time a change is made.New Blogger Widget to Display a Google+ Community Badge to your Blog!,
