Review: SZ Google Plugin for WordPress

gz_googleLast night I installed and began testing out the “SZ – Google for WordPress” plugin. There are far more options than I would ever use on this Tablet server but it is definitely a great plugin if you are a Google+ user. The documentation is excellent and you could literally spend days playing with this plugin and still have more stuff to try.

Some of the basics are what I have decided to use on my site. If you look in the right-hand sidebar  you will see a G+ button and a bit farther down a G+ Profile Badge,  (If you are reading this on a tablet/phone, view the site in landscape mode, on a PC they will be quite obvious).

I like the fact that you can turn off the options you are not using. That means less load on your server and why load stuff you aren’t going to use? For those who don’t like a lot of complexity this plugin may seem just a bit too much, but since it has just about everything you can think of Google-wise, it is worth trying. You may not need those options today, but you might realize down the road that they could be super handy. There are options for Google Drive, Google Translate, Google Comments also included in this plugin.

Some of the nicest features are the ability to use shortcode or widgets or integrate the various functions directly into your theme. Below are a few screen shots of the admin screens for this plugin.

I am going to give this plugin 4.5 out of 5 stars. Only because I will probably never test all the features on this site because it is after all running on a tablet with a dozen or more other plugins already running.  Bottom line is that it will run on a Tablet based website on Android and that means it will certainly run on a Linux server. So in my opinion it is well worth installing and trying it out.
