Google+ is a fast growing community. Millions of people are already using the platform. If you get a significant number of visitors on your site, chances are some of them use Google+ already. Wouldn’t it be nice if you they could log on to your website using their Google+ account? WP Google Plus Connect is a cool plugin that saves you time fully integrating Google+ into your website.
This plugin serves two purposes. For starters, it adds a Google+ Direct Connect Badge to your website. You can add it to your site using a widget or shortcode. WP Google Plus Connect also lets your visitors login/register for accounts using their G+ credentials. You can also sync your Google+ stream with your blog posts. Once your visitors opt to create their new accounts using their Google+ credentials, this plugin grabs their information and records it accordingly.
This plugin also works with BuddyPress. If that is enabled on your website, your Google+ picture becomes your BuddyPress avatar. Your new activity is regularly synced with Google+, which is quite helpful. Overall, this is a wonderful way to save your G+ visitors time signing up for new accounts on your site.
