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 + "&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.
