Go to Edit HTML tab under Layout of Blogger — Expand Widget Templates


Press CTRL+F and find </head> Now, just above or before this paste the following code.


<!--orkut share starts here-->
<script src='' type='text/javascript'/>
<script type='text/javascript'>
google.load(&#39;orkut.share&#39;, &#39;1&#39;);
google.setOnLoadCallback(function() {
var params = {};
params[google.orkut.share.Field.TITLE] = &#39;<data:blog.pageName/>&#39;;
params[google.orkut.share.Field.DESTINATION_URL] = &#39;<data:blog.url/>&#39;;
var connection = new google.orkut.share.Connection(params);
document.getElementById(&#39;orkut-share&#39;).onclick =
function(e) { connection.send(&#39;;, {}); };
}, true);
<!--orkut share end-->



Now find <div class=’post-footer-line post-footer-line-1′> and add this code immediately after it
