Simple plugin to auto post to Google+ ? (30 posts)

    Just wondering if this exists. Haven't found it through a search of plugins. Looking for the equivalent of a Simple Facebook Connect or other plugin that will automatically post to my Google + account.
    These auto posts would go to the default 'public' circle so wouldn't need the added functionality of pushing to a particular circle.
    Thanks

    Ahhh. See I'm not the only one looking for the same thing. Let me know if you find something.

    In the meantime I found this one to allow people to add me in their circles.

    I think Google hasn't released the API for posting to G+ yet .. So we'll have to wait a while for this.

    Looking for the identical thing. Has Google seriously still not released that portion of their API?

    Also waiting for it.

    My facebook account is populated by my WP blog. Google+ is slowly getting less and less of my postings.

    I will add my voice. I searched for over an hour before I gave up.

    I'm looking for it too. I'm wondering exactly what The Google+ Plugin's "integrate with Google+ page" feature does, if not this?

    Cheers,
    Graham

    As far as I know the API does not allow posting, else I would try creating such a plugin.

    Unfortunately, at this time, the API is limited to read-only access. From the API website:

    Note: The Google+ API currently provides read-only access to public data. All API calls require either an OAuth 2.0 token or an API key.

    You would think that Google would already integrate this priceless feature into their environment. I'm posting rarely to Google+ exactly because of this. It's very unfortunate, because the whole concept of their social network is great.

    Has anybody ever analyzed, what bthe shre menue entry of the google reader does?
    I am using exactly that feature to easily manually share postings which come from my WP blog by RSS.
    I can imagine the same mechanism could be used automatically.

    The best option to post to Google+ so far is to add your website's RSS feed to Google Reader and share it from the +1 icon there. Looking forward for auto-posting though.

    I use FacePress II to send the title an dlink to Facebook, then copy and paste that into G+ Sad but true that Google makes me do that.

    I suggest we all log in to Google+, select Options (the icon in the top right that looks like a gear), Send Feedback and ask them to make the Google+ API writable.

    Also post a feature request in their forum. Maybe they'll get the message.

    Cheers,
    Graham

    I have been able to replicate this for posting to my personal G+ profile, but not for posting to a Business Page. Any ideas on how this is done for a Business Page, or still not possible.

    It almost seems like Google wants to avoid any possible automation of their business pages as a way of preventing those who would abuse the system. Especially since they have a history of cracking down so hard on abusers.

    This site claims to have figured it out, but it also looks a bit shady to me:

    Actually, I see that Google plugged whatever hole they were using to "exploit" the system.

    Just adding my voice to this. Has anyone found a legitimate way to automate posting to a Google+ Business page from WordPress?

    I haven't familiarized myself enough with Google+ Business Page API's to know whats available.

    Thanks.

    This is new. If you try it let me know how it works for you. It costs $50 for the privilege of posting to Google+

    Well... http://www.nextscripts.com/google-plus-automated-posting
    works... but its not very general yet. I'm amazed that there is no email2g+ feature yet.

    I have installed WPGPlus onto my blog and will do my best to inform how it works... you can visit http://blog.goodreturn.org and https://plus.google.com/109446005634167602266/posts to see if it starts syncing. (I can't post until tomorrow as per our schedule to test it!)

    I recently reviewed Next Script Social Network Auto Poster plugin which might be of interest to those of you still looking for a way to post to Google+

    Adding one more interested party's voice here.

    We're also trying to solve the issue of autoposting "+1" likes into out company's profile on Google+. It is no secret now that all links in GOOGLE+ profile page which are +1 posts are DOFOLLOW links and Google adds pretty good porion of PR to every page that was tagged with +1 option.

    So we started our account and began to post +1 links to our own pages there. But we have over 1 million pages on our Local places geo-search and geolocation online service and it is rather confusing to TAG every page.

    So we are investigating an option to make autoposts to Google+ API using ASP.NET and C# technologies...

    Still solving it, I'll keep you updated.

    Hi Guys,
    I was also looking for auto post from wordpress to google plus, but for now I am using Google Reader to do this for me. I had subscribe my own wordpress blog to my Google Reader account and from there I share my all the post to Google Plus.
    Thanks..

    Bump.

    Still nothing better than a plugin that also requires purchase of a $49 script and possibly nagging my web host to enable features I may not have by default?

    As Graham Stoney recommended several posts earlier, I am going to post a feature request/suggestion on the G+ forums.

    I was also poking around on the G+ API site. While I can sometimes tinker my way through PHP and CSS, I don't know the first thing about app development... but if I'm understanding the main points of the few pages I was reviewing, it seems like G+ might be getting closer to finally making this happen.

    It's all under what they're calling their "History API." Right now, they say this is only available as a "preview" for developers to begin building and testing apps. The page was last updated on 6/27/2012.
