This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest three major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Google+ Importer


Import your latest Google+ activity into your site as posts. Currently supports most types of activity on Google+ with more options coming soon.

This is an early version so use wisely. Please let me know about any bugs or requests.


This plugin is currently in its early stages, so send your feedback or ideas to and I’ll keep them in mind as development continues. Look for frequent updates, new features, and bugfixes.


  1. Upload the /google-importer/ directory to your /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Visit the Google+ WordPress settings page and follow the directions under “Getting Started”


Can I use CSS to differentiate my Google+ activity from other posts?

Yes! The div container for posts from Google+ has “google-plus” as an additional class for your CSS convenience. If you set “via Google+” text to be shown at the end of posts, you can use span.via-google-plus to style it.
