Google Buzz it Button for Blogger and WordPress Blogs [Updated]

Google Buzz, I know you’ve already heard about that or obviously when you’re using Gmail then I know you’re now familiar with the new social media service by the internet giant Google. For me it seems to be an integrated FriendFeed and Twitter lying on your Gmail account. I’ve been using the new service since it was release and yes I find it useful somehow since I’m using Gmail as my main e-mail account plus the fact that I’m maintaining few blogs. Truly it’s another way of exposing your blogs to social media.

In this post, we will be discussing the way we can incorporate an easy-click button to feed users Google Buzz stream with any article they like to buzz to their subscribers. This idea is what mostly we can see working on retweet or Digg buttons.

I’ll be presenting ways mainly for Blogger and WordPress blogging platform. Here are the easy steps to follow.

For Blogger blogs follow these steps:

1. Log on to your Blogger account.

2. Go to Layout–> Edit HTML–>then tick Expand Widget Templates.

3. Search for this code:
<div class='post-footer-line post-footer-line-3'/>
4. When you find the line of code above, immediately paste this code below:
<a expr:href='"http://www.google.com/reader/link?url=" + data:post.url + "&amp;title=" + data:post.title'> <img src="http://img502.imageshack.us/img502/3048/buzzthis.png" align="right" /></a>
5. Save your template. Then view your blog and try if you can “Buzz it” one of your post.

6. To test if your article was publish on your Google Buzz, Log on to Gmail and see the Buzz tab. You should see the link published.

For WordPress simply use Single.php and add the following code below. I prefer adding the code rather than using another plug-ins to support these add-ons. Another plug-ins can contribute on loading stress.

<a href="http://www.google.com/reader/link?url=<?php the_permalink ();?>&srcURL=<?php bloginfo ( ‘url’);?>&srcTitle=<?php the_title();?>&title=<?php the_title();?>"><img src="http://img502.imageshack.us/img502/3048/buzzthis.png" align="right" /></a>

Please let me know if you have any problem implementing the Buzz it button as always you can always reach me via the comment or contact form.

<a title="Post on Google Buzz" class="google-buzz-button" expr:href='&quot;http://www.google.com/buzz/post?url=&quot; + data:post.url' data-button-style="small-count"></a>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.google.com/buzz/api/button.js"></script>

    Thanks for the tip, I'm surprised that google created a twitter like program on their email. But its a bit convenient because you don't need to go to other site to see updates on other people. Once you open up your email your good to go, maybe its the reason why a lot of people are adding me on my twitter account..

    by the way I'll try to play around with your guide, thanks for the tip!
