Google+ Embedded Posts

If you're a publisher or blogger who wants to insert a Google+ post (written by yourself or others) in one of your articles, you can use embedded posts!

Embedded posts enable you to:

  • Quote notable individuals or brands on Google+ inline in your article.
  • Display Google+ posts in a Google+ branded frame identifying the source of the content.

The post will update if the author of the post edits it.

When your visitors encounter the Google+ embedded post on your site, they can +1, comment, or follow the post author, all without leaving your site.

Embed a post

  1. While viewing the post in Google+, move your cursor over the right corner of a post to reveal a down arrow.
  2. Click the arrow to expand the post options and select "Embed post."
  3. A text box containing HTML/JS code will appear.
  4. Copy the code to your clipboard.
  5. Paste the code in the location of your article where you'd like to display the post.
Currently, only public Google+ posts are embeddable on external websites.

For more information on embedding Google+ posts, please refer to the Google+ Developers site.

By embedding Google+ posts, you agree to our policies.

If you encounter a Google+ embedded post that violates our policy, please report the issue here.
