Google announced today that they have now given users a very simple way to embed Google+ posts into their articles or sites by grabbing the required embed code. This is great news for site owners/ article writers who may reference posts from Google+, as it will allow their readers to access the referenced Google+ post directly to comment, +1 the post or simply find more from that author without leaving the original article. This is something that Twitter has allowed people to do for some time now and more recently Facebook. With the huge amount of interesting articles being posted to Google+ these days, this new feature will give content creators easier ways to share information, which can only be a good thing. One thing to note though, is that you can only share posts that have been made public, which is good.
So let’s take a look at how you go about embedding a Google+ post to your site.
Firstly find the article that you would like to share with your readers and click on the drop-down arrow on the top-right, to see the available options.
Select Embed Post which will then open a new window with the necessary code snippets.
Now just grab the highlighted code and paste it to where you would like it to render. Hopefully if you have done it correctly, then you should see the post neatly embedded into your article as shown below:
