A few days ago, Google+ officially announced the release of a new commenting system for blogger blogs and within hours people started using it on non-blogger sites.
If you take a serious look, you will find the G+ comments is much better than the facebook one.
Personally, I am going to stick with the default commenting system but I know a ton of folks who would love to deploy the G+ comments to their WordPress websites.
In this article, I will show you how to add the Google+ comments in WordPress.
Google+ Comments Plugin
Google+ comments plugin replaces your WordPress comment system with the G+ powered comments hosted by Google. It’s unofficial G+ comments plugin. This is a great solution for publishers and bloggers who love the Google+ network. Easily comment on sites using your Google+ identity and build connections with other people.
It can also help in increasing conversations about the content.
Here’s a step by step guide on how to install and set up the G+ plugin.
Step 1: Navigate to Plugins > Add New > search for “Google+ Comments” or if you’re familiar with installing plugins in WordPress than you might want to download it from the WordPress directory and upload it manually.
Step 2: Activate the plugin to simply add the G+ comments to your blog.
Here’s how the plugin looks with 3 tabs – G+ comments, WordPress comments and trackbacks. If you just want to use the Google+ comments system, than disable the default comments system from the dashboard.
Overall, I think it’s the best and most complete plugin out there for adding Google+ comments and Brandon Holtsclaw, the developer of this plugin has done a great job. So..give it a try and see how it works.
What do you think about the G+ comments for WordPress? Will you be adding the G+ comments to your website?
