In the video above I show you how to get your Google Plus posts into Feedburner and post them automatically to Twitter.
As you can see on Google Plus you do not have an RSS feed address for your posts built in so we’re going to have to get our feed address first. Our RSS is simply an XML format of everything that we are posting
Step 1 – Getting a Google Plus Posts Feed with pluss – Feed Proxy for Google+
Let’s head on over to http://pluss.aiiane.com/ which will create a feed for our Google Plus posts.
**You must be signed into your Google Plus account to do this!
Simply select Login with Google and I’m going to allow access.
Step 2 – Burning Your Google Plus Feed to Feedburner
The next step is to head on over to Feedburner to burn our feed and automate it to Twitter. (If you don’t yet have a feedburner account you can sign up for one – it’s free.)
Select Burn a feed right this instant, paste in your new Google Plus feed URL and click on Next.
You can change the feed address as you like and click on Next.
Optimizing the Feedburner Feed
Your feed is basically ready but what you want to do is optimize your feed and automate posting to Twitter.
**Note that the Feedburner feed address contains an empty space in it – so be ware not to copy the address from this window (you can click on the link to view the full feed and copy the address from your browser instead or wait till the end of the optimization process to get your new Feedburner feed address.
Select Smartfeed and activate it so that your feed is compatible with any feedreader application.
Now Go to the Publicize tab.
To notify RSS aggregators and directories every time your feed changes select Pingshot and activate the service.
Next and most important is to select Socialize to automate your posting to Twitter.
Step 3 – Linking Twitter to FeedBurner – Automate Posting From Feedburner to Twitter
You can decide how your tweet will look and whether you want to leave room for retweets or hashtags and activate the service.
Now every time you post to Google Plus it will automatically be tweeted out!
To check out what the Feedburner feed looks like by click on the RSS icon on the top right hand side of the screen. alternately you can go to “My Feeds” and select your new feed.
You can see the full feed here as well as copy the Feedburner Feed address.
You can use your Feedburner Google Plus feed address on other platforms such as Blogger or apps connecting you to other social accounts to get your Google Plus posts all over the web.
