First thing first – to create a badge for your Google+ business page you must have a Google+ page. So if you don’t have any create a Google+ Business Page. I will try to create a badge for my Google+ business page in few steps explaining every step in such a way that you do not have to browse to any other site for help.
- I am assuming that you have created a Google+ page or you have one. So after logging in the page I am assuming that you are in home page. Now you can see a long number at your address bar like below.Copy that number (highlighted in red rectangle)
- Now go to the link Google Badge Configuration Page
The page will look like belowNow paste the numeric entity you have copied from the address bar at previous step into the text box like below.
- The moment you will paste the number you will be asked to choose the styleNow here I have chosen the large icon because it will suite to my primary webpage layout. So depending on your needs you can choose any of the options available.
You can also customize your badge just by entering the name of your page, (e.g. Here I have entered as ‘Avirup_Photography’) so that name will come at the bottom of your badge icon.
- We are now almost done. So our badge is ready to go; only thing that is remaining is to get the code of the badge we have just created.
Now you can see the code of your badge is ready and waiting for you at the bottom of the page.Copy the code at your primary website, or your blog or spread it in your social profile like in Facebook. You are good to go.
