Auto Post to Google Plus from WordPress: Other Methods

There are a couple of other options that will allow you to auto post to Google Plus.  They include:

  • WPGPlus WordPress Plugin:  I haven’t tried this plugin as it currently gets low ratings on WordPress.com.  I typically stay away from plugins until they have matured.
  • dlvr.it:  This is a paid service I discovered here.  Since it costs money, I didn’t try this solution either. :)
  • Next Scripts: This is another paid option.  If you don’t mind spending a little cash, this is really the best option for posting to unlimited social networking accounts.  It’s only a one time fee.  A free trial is available so check it out!

  7. Great post, just what I was looking for. Do you know if it’s possible to post to a facebook business page in the same way? I see it lets you connect to personal pages but I couldn’t work out how to get it to post to my business one

    Cheers

    • I don’t know if the free Hoot Suite method will post to Facebook pages. I actually started using Next Scripts to post to pages. I know $50 isn’t cheap but Next Scripts pro lets you automatically post to an unlimited number of social media accounts. It’s worth every penny.

      • Quentin – Using the auto post to G+page have you noticed if this has helped any local SEO on the Google Maps listings? I do local SEO and am always looking for better ways to improve Google Maps listings. Thanks.

  8. Thanx for your post
    Do you know any Premium plugin since post my WordPress site to G+?
    Thanx
