Link from Google+ to Free WordPress

  1. I have searched high and low for an answer to this:

    How do I link my Google+ account to a free wordpress.com account?

    Google+ asks me to do this:

    By adding a short line of code to http://alexmarshallguitarlessons.wordpress.com/, you can make your Google+ page eligible to show up on the right-hand side of the Google search page for relevant queries and make your Google+ page more discoverable. Learn more
    Ask your site's webmaster to add the following line of code to your site's homepage:
    Google+
    You can also email these instructions to your webmaster

    I have pasted this code into the text on my homepage, but when I 'Test website' from Google+ I get this error message:
    "Check that the line of code has been added to your site's homepage and that the modified homepage is live on your site. Then try testing again."

    I feel like I have achieved this for another free wordpress blog, but can't make it work.

    Any help?

    The blog I need help with is alexmarshallguitarlessons.wordpress.com.

  2. You go to your Settings->Sharing page and you enable it under Publicize.

    Note that when you do this your username switches to whatever it is on G+.

  3. Thanks for the quick reply raincoaster. I had already done this and I think this is a slightly different issue.

    Here's Google's page on the steps I was trying to take:

    However, I tried it again with seemingly no difference to the code I entered and it worked. I am baffled anyway
