Add Google Buzz Button To WordPress Blog

by Simrandeep Singh on February 11, 2010

Google Buzz ButtonIn my last post, I posted about Google Buzz, a new social tool by Google. If you are still unaware of Google Buzz, you can read about it here. Famous tech blogs Mashable and TechCrunch already started adding the Google Buzz buttons into their posts. Now you can also add Buzz this button to your WordPress blog.

To make this button work, your Google reader account must be connected with Google Buzz account. If you already have a Google reader account then it must be already connected with your Google Buzz account.

Manually Add Google Buzz Button to WordPress blog

  1. Login to your WordPress dashboard.
  2. Now go to Theme editor and open the single.php file.
  3. Copy and paste the following code in single.php file where you want the button to appear :
    <a
    href="http://www.google.com/reader/link?url=<?php the_permalink() ?>&title=<?php the_title(); ?>&srcURL=<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>" target="_blank" rel="nofollow external"><img
    src="http://img2.pict.com/15/da/3e/2809374/0/googlebuzz.png" width="50" height="58" alt="" /></a>
  4. Click on Update file button.

I have found that since adding a Google Buzz plugin to my website my articles / posts do not get Buzz’d as much as re-tweeted, but I guess it is nice to have more exposure to the world.

I agree in some respects that Google Buzz could become a genuine social platform in the future, but will it just become more of a news feed like Digg? :/. I wish I could jump in to the future to find out.

I had it for a while but later on seems like Google failed to market this and now I don’t find it effective anymore and that’s why it’s removed from my essential bookmarking buttons. Though thanks for the post…..
