The Google Plus social network just got better with the addition of the Google Plus Embedded post feature.

If you have a website, you can now share your Google + content directly in any blog post. This serves to reuse content originally posted on Google Plus and also brings it beyond the boundaries of your G+ network.

How to Embed a Google Plus Post

Embedding a Google + post in your website is easy to do. An advantage is that people can comment +1 and follow you from the Google post from your website.

Why Use G+ Embedded Posts Feature?

So now the Google has this fabulous embedded post feature, why should we use it? There are many reasons and Stephan Hovnanian did a great job of collecting smart uses for Google Plus embedded posts.

What Type of Google Plus Posts are Supported?

  • Posts with text
  • Posts with images – The post will appear with the image on your webpage. If a user clicks the image, they will go to the Google Plus image view.
  • Posts with videos – The post will appear with the video on your webpage. If a user clicks the video, it will play within the embedded post.
  • Posts with links to a community – If a user clicks the post, they will view the community just as they would in the Google Plus stream.

The following Google + post types are not supported for embedding:

  • Posts from within a community
  • Posts that are restricted to a Google Apps domain
  • Private posts
  • Events posts
  • Hangout on Air posts

I included 2 embedded Google+ posts within this article so you can experience the interaction from a web page.

  1. Thanks for including my embedded post, Lisa! To truly close the loop, you should add a comment to it with the link back here. Good writeup on the ins and outs of this as well; I’m sure as this feature becomes developed over time, we’ll have more options!
