Best Google Buzz Plugin For WordPress

Yes, we have also started using Buzz. For 95% of user Google made us to use it. But as we in ARCom very close with social, we started using it firstly for ThetechJournal.com. Today we were working on Google Buzz intregation on our site. We could manually add it to WordPress, it will be normal share button code, but if you want counter to be working it needs to be javascript. As Google still did not release any API yet, so developer used one trick, they used Google reader and Bit.ly api so track.

Here are best possible, so far released WordPress Plugin.

WPBuzzer

Hameedulah’s WPBuzzer is the most robust of the Google Buzz button plugins as of right now. The style of the button is almost identical to what Mashable and the Google Buzz Button use (albeit, not quite as clean), but the options are where this plugin really shines.

You can choose where you want your buttons to appear (on posts, on pages, on the home page, in your RSS feed), whether your want the button to appear before or after the post, the target for the button (a new window or a pop-up share option) and even the CSS style. You can also choose to use a small or large button.

The biggest feature is that you can track share counts (just like we do at Mashable) if you have a Bit.ly API key and login.

How To Manually Add Button:

Just add this code where you want Buzz to apear <?php wpbuzzer(); ?>

BTW you could configure size from plugin control

Google Buzz Button

Google Buzz is launched and many publishers, webmaster and web addicts has already started using that. If you are having a WordPress site then you can add “Google Buzz Button” thru a simple wordpress plugin to let other people share your posts on their Buzz. Google didn’t release any official button yet but we have released a WordPress plugin to add a button on a post/page. Once your visitor will click on this button, they will be taken to a page where they can add some note on your post’s link and title and share that on their Buzz. This way your post/page’s reach will increase by huge amount.
