I was surprised that I could not find a plugin that would add a new WordPress post to Google+. I saw plugins that showed my Google+ profile card or added a +1 button to my site, but nothing to send a new post automatically to Google+. I can do this with the Twitter Tools plugin to Twitter, but I couldn’t find one for Google+.
I found a workaround – IFTTT. People have been raving about IFTTT.com, and I thought it was interesting, but I didn’t see a need. Then I stumbled on a post described how you can use Google Voice to send an SMS text to Google Plus. With the use of this IFTTH recipe, this post should show up in my Google+.
Let’s see if this works!
UPDATE: FAIL: Google+: Internal error occurred, please try later.
UPDATE2:Been working for a while!
The Google+ API is currently read-only – there is no way for a plugin or program to post a status update using the API.
I’m pretty sure that we’ll see a plugin once the API accepts write requests. Would be cool if Wordbooker could do the job.
Well, that explains that! Didn’t know that the API was read only. Wonder when they will update it.
