The Plus One tag wont delete... WTF?

Google is changing how they rank sites again so I figure, okay... I will add the plus one button. Not only will the script not work here but the b*tch wont delete the tag line from my blog post signature.

WTF is up with that? I should be able to delete this... I logged out. I logged in. I opened the HTML section and deleted it. I updated the update. Bloody line keeps popping up with a text button placement holder I need to dump.

How strange is that?

I deleted the buzz button script too thinking maybe I missed something.

That button had no problem disappearing.


Now I have to Google this problem and see if anyone else is having a script issue...

I will delete this... even if it means blowing up my blog... seriously... (I hate crappy scripts - it's personal - LOL)

I am wondering what the plus 1 script is supposed to do. I had a widget that just wouldn't delete. I had to take all the html out of the description and rebuild.

Got the script from here. What am I missing? Seriously...

Shows how out of touch I am. Don't know what Plus One Tag is!

Maya, I'm now looking at all of the code line by line trying to figure out how a simple cut and paste could have gone so wrong... I'm glad I didn't update my Blogger, GoDaddy and Wordpress sites with this. I want that useless text tag gone. If I can't have the button what the heck do I need the text tag for?

Jon, it never ends with Google. They are always tweaking something. :-)

I do not know what the Plus One tag is either.  Oh well maybe I will in another life.

Tim, there is a video on the link at comment #2 that explains everything. :-)

Well at least I understood all the acronyms. The other is like foreign language that I'm just starting to learn. I'm working on adding widgets now. I'll go check out #2. -;)

"Place this tag where you want the +1 button to render" shows upon my main blog posts but not my outside blogs. Since the phrase wont stay deleted I put the other two lines of script back and I'll shoot off a work ticket to AR get it fixed if I can't figure it out later. I am beyond annoyed. The button was supposed to make things easier not piss me off (LOL).  

Kristal, the Blogspot site was where I noticed it being used effectively. I was shocked to see my bounce page outranking ActiveRain in Google for my last name so I figured I'd better get it integrated over here. All five AR blogs are usually on page one but my other sites are starting to push a couple to page two. Can't have that. I need them ALL on page one just where I expect them to be (LOL). ;-)

Miss C - I read the instruction and think maybe the problem is where you have it. They want you to put it in the head - but we don't have access to that - I would ask the AR techs to put it in for you. Alternatively they want you to put it at the end of the body. To do that you would add it to the end of every post in html view just before the </bod> command. At least that is what I think they are saying.

Maya, I think you are absolutely right, however not being able to delete this completely has me stumped. My social media buttons work on Blogger and they are not in the head... Hmm... I will ask the AR guys to get that puppy working for me or delete it since I'm failing miserably at getting it gone (LOL). :-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) over 9 years ago

I've been have problmes as well with the cut and paste.....even though I have no idea what you are talking about....it's way over my head....everytime I cut and past the html code shows up.....do you know how to stop that?

Aida, I can't sleep. I am giving the search engines a run for their money tonight trying to figure it out. :-)

C - I haven't used the one plus feature yet so I'm just bookmarking your post for future reference.

I ain't no tech genius...

this is the screen shot from clicking on your link in comment #2.

1) I assume you're pasting this in HTML (okay, may be a "duh" moment).

2) I believe they only want you to copy the SECOND line... the one that starts with <script type=...>   the FIRST line that says <!--Place this tag...> is probably just instructions so that you know what you're copying.

Just my 2¢

Posted by Alan May, A moving experience! (Jameson Sotheby's International Realty) over 9 years ago

Marc, I've been using every button out there. This new one is supposed to eventually replace their buzz button. :-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) over 9 years ago

Alan, I get that but my issue is it wont delete/erase from the HTML box (LOL). I should be able to make it go away but it wont. That's the freaky part (LOL). ;-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) over 9 years ago

Google is insisting that you are +1 - LOL

I was going to add it to my blog, and forgot - now I will wait until YOU solve this problem.  :)  Let us know!

Virginia, I swear if I could take it back I would (LOL). What have I done? Woe is me (LMAO). This thing is driving me crazy... I read up on it every day trying to figure out what to do. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. No answers yet. :-)
