        he means the autoslider at the bottom right of the screen as you scroll down. The ‘More in ‘ plugin that u are using. i also need to install it on my site.
        Also i need to ask, will the plugin wpgplus automatically post to G+ page or just the profile?

  2. Anderson says

    Hi, interesting post. I have a question… Does WPGPlus WordPress Plugin publish on Google Plus Profile Stream or on Google Plus Page Stream?

  3. Michael says

    Tried them all. None of the “Free” are working. I really tried. No posts on my Google+. I ended up buying NextScripts.
    I must say – $49 well spent. Works like a charm. It can post to both Profile Stream and to Google Plus Page Stream.

    This will be great. i have found some wordpress plugin that automatically post on other social network like FB twitter, tumblr but i didnt see for google plus. Glad for sharing this. Thanks

  5. says

    How come this thing doesn’t work for me ? am I doing something wrong ?
    How long does it takes to replicate the post on Google+ ? Please help!!

  6. Fred says

    We tested the NextScripts Pro, don’t do it. There isn’t a way to limit the number of posts per hour so you end up spamming groups if you have a high volume site. Which can get you banned from the social platform where you are posting.

    Aha, just what I’ve been looking for.

    Do any of these post to specific circles? e.g. So I can set my posts to automatically be posted to certain circles instead of just to the account in general?

    Currently I manually ‘share’ and then set it to public, extended circles and then specific circles I want the post highlighted in . Can it do that? Or does it matter if its being set to public/extended circles anyway?

  8. says

    I figured out how to do it!!!!!!!
    I tried Gpressor & WPGPlus plugins but they are unreliable (I think Google blocks them?).
    So here is how I do it:
    1) Create WP post. Syndicate to Blogger. (I use Links Alpha for this).
    2) Go to blogger account. Select “posts”. Click share.
    Voila Blogger posts to the Google+page!
    Note: I have a personal gmail account and g+ profile under which I have my g+ page for my business.
    I had to transfer my blogger blog from my personal gmail account to my business gmail account (we use Google Apps).
    Then when I click Share in blogger it shares from my business domain to my business page….
    It seems you cannot share from a personal gmail account to a business page.

    It’s a greet article, i admit it but the WPGPlus need to login by google account!? doesn’t it harm your account? anyone knowledge about php please tell me more before i used it.

  10. says

  11. says

    I have used WPGPlus on my blog and it does seem to post anything to my google+ account, I don’t know if there are people here who have proof that its working perfectly but if one exist here and reads this comment, please i really like to know maybe there is something i am doing wrong with the plugin.
    I didn’t read your blog Comment Policy before posting my first comment so please accept my apology.

  12. says

    Thank you very much for this post.

    Thanks
