Inserting G+ code into markup

I’ve searched the web for clear information on how to insert G+ information to my site, without luck. When it comes to entering the code into the markup box I am confused. All instructions say to insert the code into the of my document. The thing is, there are two lots of "Before ", "After " sections in the markup box. Any assistance much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

There are four sections related to the head. They are as follows:

Before <head>
After <head>
Before </head>
After </head>

Think of these labels as being hyper-literal, because they are. They mean exactly Before or after the tag itself – that literal combination of characters, and likewise with the tag. So if your code is meant to go inside the head ELEMENT, then you have to choose either After or Before , these are functionally identical when it comes to getting something inside the goal lines of the head element.

Thanks, Water, but I don’t now what hyper-literal means. And I still don’t know where the code needs to go, as there are two lots of before and after. With my low level of tech understanding, I really need a tutorial with pics. Badly needed in the Freeway manual. I’ll just have to mess around with it, I guess. Regards, Greg.

I thought I told you, either put it in After or Before . If you were looking at an HTML page (the code), you would see this structure:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <meta charset="utf-8" />
  <title>Hello</title>
</head>
<body>
  <h1>Hello</h1>
</body>
</html>

That’s literally the bones of an HTML page. So when I said hyper-literal, I meant "literally the characters or the characters ", as opposed to the symbolic meaning of those characters, which is to say “the head element, which is one of the canonical elements of an HTML page”. You may encounter examples written in either a literal or symbolic manner, and experience with those examples will give you a frame of reference to work with.

Sadly, most of the world does not use Freeway, and putters around in the plumbing of a Web page in a very literal manner. Freeway does its best to keep you from having to discover this stuff in normal day-to-day usage.

But in Freeway, there are Actions for just about any sort of social media widget you might need to add to your site, and you may want to have a search around the ActionsForge to see if there’s one for G+. You may also be able to use the built-in AddThis Action just for G+. An Action will write the code for you, and add it into the page head for you without any hunt-and-peck needed.

Hope this helps, I didn’t want to confuse you.
