BobbyeM71hxwHow to Integrate Google Buzz to your WordPress Theme

Google Buzz is a new social media service introduced by Google to share real-time updates. It is integrated directly with your gmail account. It can be integrated just like Twitter in your blog to let your readers share your blogs posts with their followers.

To generate a “Share to Google Buzz” link, you just need to add the following code in between your WordPress Posts Loop.

<a href=’http://www.google.com/reader/link?url=<?php the_permalink(); ?>&title=<?php the_title(); ?>&snippet=<?php the_title(); ?>&srcURL=<?php bloginfo(‘wpurl’); ?>&srcTitle=<?php bloginfo(‘name’); ?>’>Share to Google Buzz</a>

The link contains 4 parameters:

url: link to blog post
title: blog post title
srcURL: source url like your blog url
srcTitle: your blog name or title

It’s a simplest and plugin free way to add Google Buzz to your blog posts. If you want, you can add a Google Buzz icon instead of text link in the above code.
