Google+ still has a long way to go to prove its usefulness in social media marketing and although the signs are positive, one big downside is the lack of support for integration into other areas of the social media mix. Unlike Twitter & Facebook with their tweet & follow buttons, if you want to add blog posts to your Google+ stream, there are no such tools… ..until now (If you are using WordPress to power your blog at at least). If your blog is ‘powered by WordPress’, all you need to do is add the following code to the relevant place in your WordPress template. (If you don’t know how to do this, we would be happy to assist) <a href=”https://m.google.com/app/plus/x/?v=compose&content=<?php the_title(); ?> – <?php the_permalink(); ?>” onclick=”window.open(‘https://m.google.com/app/plus/x/?v=compose&content=<?php the_title(); ?> – <?php the_permalink(); ?>’,’gplusshare’,’width=450,height=300,left=’+(screen.availWidth/2-225)+’,top=’+(screen.availHeight/2-150)+”);return false;”><img style=”float:left; margin-right:10px;” src=”http://i52.tinypic.com/xfohg4.png” width=”55″ height=”22″ alt=”Share <?php the_title(); ?> on Google+” title=”Share <?php the_title(); ?> on Google+”></a> Once installed, a button will display against your post. When clicked, the button will add the post to your Google+ stream. Although it is a little technical at the moment, my thanks to Alex at AVItricks.info. I am certain it won’t be long before someone offers a plugin to simplify this process, and when they do, we will be sure to post it here.
