Recently traffic-spike hit in one of our shared-hosted WordPress blog TechGeeze.com and it forced Bluehost to shutdown all of our domains hosted in their servers.

This is causing performance problems on your website as well as for other customers that are on this server.

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.

Update:
You can also check out this new Google Buzz button with counter by going here.

Update:
I have just implemented a new Google Buzz Button with counter on my sites like TechGeeze.com, AutoGeeze.com and here, see? Isn’t that more attractive and professional, for Blogger platform just copy and paste the code below, this as-is the code I have used.

<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>

But mostly what I’ve seen on many blogs or websites is a missing translation plug-ins for their readers. I might say that it was really necessary if you’re advocacy is to spread your knowledge. Although English is the common-language worldwide, some peoples that might read your articles are not literate enough to understand the content.
Anyways, here are the few easy steps on how to add Google Translate plug-ins on your blog:
2. Then, Select the language of your webpage by clicking the drop down button.
3. You may want to further customize the language the translator can translate by selecting few languages, but I prefer “All Languages”.
4. Copy the code snippet provided and place it on the section of your website you want it to appear.
5. Then you may try it by clicking the Google Translate button and select a language you want it to be translated and it should automatically reload for translation. A nav-bar will appear at top part of your site showing the percentage translated together with the cancel button and when it’s done the show original button will appear. Simply click the “Show Original” button to get it back to original language.
If your using Blogger platform, follow this step:
1. Log on to your Blogger account.
2. Go to Layout–>Page Elements then Add a Gadget–>HTML/JavaScript Add.
3. Copy and Paste the code obtained at step 4 above when you are customizing the Google translate page.
4. Click Save.
5. Then view your blog, give it a try by following previous step 5 above.
Hope this works for you, anyways other powerful tools are available at the Google Translate page and you may want to play with it. You can install the Google Toolbar that enables you to “you just pause the pointer over an English word, and the Word Translator displays that word’s meaning in your own language.” Or you can incorporate it on your browser by dragging one of language button on your browser toolbar menu.
