Google Plus is a best innovation of Google service. Generally Google Plus is a social media service Google. After introducing Google Plus a blogger can now easily share their posts through this social media. I think this is a revolutionary changes of Google blogger platform. Because this integrated with Google blogger account. After introducing Google Plus it was improvising time to time. Already Google Plus profile has change 3 times. And more improvement we can see day by day. Earlier there was an problem about Google Plus badge because this was not looking attractive but some blogger including me developed different customized Google Plus badge but there was problem in browsers compatibility. Some badges work smoothly in Google chrome but some are not in Firefox browsers. So it was a biggest problem who wants to use Google Plus badge into their blog.
Finally Google Product developer has solved this issue. And created a developer page where you can make your Google Plus badge and icon in different style. This is just like Facebook developer pages. Now a blogger can easily add Google plus badge in different style. You would find badge or icon setup on developer pages.
Now I will discuss how you can customize the badge and icon widget. Thus you can display your image beside of Google Plus badge.
First of all you have to select Google Plus account. If you have more than one profile pages then select appropriate one.
Here you can choose either Icon or Badge. Chose any one which you would like to add into your blog.
You can select Portrait or Landscape layout for your badge. Portrait is vertical style and landscape is horizontal style.
By this option you can customize the width of the widget. Generally most blog's sidebar widget is 300px so by default it will be 300px. Change it according to your own blog sidebar.
There are only 2 color theme you can choose. Light and dark. Choose any one according to your template color.
If you want to keep your Google Plus cover photo then you can select Enable option otherwise select Disable.
This is generally display your blog description. If you have already added your blog description into your Google Plus profile then it will display. Here is also Enable and Disable option available.
If your blog is in different language then you can select any by using this option. This is just like drop down option so chose according to your blog language.
