Google +1 each of your blog posts

Ok so I've been toying with the idea on how to get this Google +1 Button working on each and everyone of your blog posts, without actually having to go into each blog post and adding the required:
<!--
<g:plusone></g:plusone>
-->Code.

I actually figured this out quite late and I am in fact exhausted, so appologies if it sounds simple or silly... :P Ok so first things first, if you don't have the Disqus commenting system in place then thats the first thing you will need in order to achieve this.

Once thats in place you will need to place the following JavaScript in your Header Code area. I can't seem to find any workable method to do this without a Yola Silver Account :(

<!--
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://apis.google.com/js/plusone.js"...>
-->

Then simply go to your blog page in the site builder, access the blog manager and go to where you pasted your Disqus code and add the following line of code (preferably) at the top of the Disqus code:

<!-- <g:plusone></g:plusone> -->

Now when you go to you blog and go to a specific blog post you will see your Disqus comment system and just above the "Like" button you should see a pretty Google +1 button.

When a visitor clicks the +1 button, the button will indicate an increase in +s and on that visitors Google profile there should be a post under their +1 area (specific to that blog post) Just like: Here

Looks like the Disqus comment code area could be more useful than I actual thought, I have also managed to paste a Buzz button.

However, I would personally suggest sticking to (Like or Share buttons) being used like this :D
