Google+ is still on beta version, but there is already huge interest on Google’s yet-to-officially-launched social networking site. WordPress developers also scramble to “hack” Google+ to help webmasters and website owners to promote their Google+ profiles.
I have found a WordPress plugin that will allow you to display your Google+ profile “card” on your blog. Read on…
I am on Google+ beta, and I have searched on Google+ for the availability of “goodies” – widgets, buttons, badges, etc. – to add our Google+ profile and/or updates on our site.
I finally stumble upon a simple but powerful Google profile scraper that allows you to display your Google+ “badge” or “card” on your site. Your site visitors can click on your name or add you on their circles (Google+’s term for contact network categorization.)
Google+ WordPress plugin
You can actually see how the “GoogleCard” looks on this blog’s sidebar on your right side…
The GoogleCard plugin is easy to install – you can either add it to your widgetized WordPress-powered website or hard-code it by adding a few lines of code. For the full installation instructions, please visit the Google+ WordPress plugin page on PlusDevs.com.
What can the Google+ WordPress plugin can do for you
The purpose of this plugin is obvious – to allow people see your profile (about you, your links, your shares, etc.) and connecting with you by adding you in their circles.
The Google+ WP plugin can help you grow your circles, as well as getting the words out about you, your business and your websites.
I’ve installed the plugin… how about you?
