Thoughts, ideas and some Project Snippets

Google+ Hangout Events + WordPress

For some time now Google+ has been building quite a following. My prediction is that within a year Google+ will be bigger marketing and communication tool than Facebook is for businesses. Why? Because businesses already have a deep relationship with Google, whether it be with Google Analytics, Google Places, Google Webmaster Tools or with the largest amount of Smart Phones on the planet through the Google Android Ecosystem.

So in this tutorial I am going to show you how to create a Google+ Event in minutes, be able to duplicate the event, add a header image and finally add the Yakadanda Google+ Hangout Events WordPress plugin to display all your public events on your WordPress website through shortcodes and widgets.

    Hi, I love this app alot! thanks :) Could you please let me know how you get that info of the events in the left column like you have at 7.54? Is its a xml or rss feed going into a blog?

    Ok, suppose I have inserted the API key in the plugin settings and the shortcode in any of my wordpress page. After that I have created 2 – 3 events in my G+. Then what will happen next..? Will my wordpress page show all those 2 -3 events?

    Please answer… thanks

    With your Google+ Hangout word press plugin. When you run a hangout and if you have 50 or more people watching it live are they able to ask questions during the hangout? Or is it limited to the guest speakers at the moment? Or do you have another plug in that allows this?

    Also I would like to thank you and everyone that create these awesome word press plugins they make things a whole lot easier for none coders like myself.
