How To Add Google+ Follower Widget in your website or WordPress/Blogger blogs


It been almost two and a half years since I am blogging on bloggers and I though it's time I see what wordpress has to offer. To surprise the UI is kind of complex and have limited widget support. Also it does not allow you to add plugins. After a few customizations I decided to add a Google+ followers widget but there unfortunately isn't one. Hence this post. It's a simple html/javascript. So you can plug it into any website. Bloggers as you know already has a widget for this.

How To Add Google+ Follower Widget in your blog/website

  • First create a simple text/html widget
  • Next add following javascript code to it
<div class="g-plus" data-action="followers" data-height="300" data-href="" data-source="blogger:blog:followers" data-width="320">
<script type="text/javascript">
      (function() {
        window.___gcfg = {'lang': 'en'};
        var po = document.createElement('script');
        po.type = 'text/javascript';
        po.async = true;
        po.src = '';
        var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0];
        s.parentNode.insertBefore(po, s);

  • Next Save and Publish. You should now be able to see the widget on your wordpress site.
NOTE : Make sure you use your own G+ page URL as the value of data-href attribute in div tag.

You should see it get rendered as follows -
