Google Plus RSS Feed for ifttt Awesomness – A How To

ifttt.com has rapidly become one of my favorite websites ever in the whole wide world. “Put the internet to work for you by creating tasks that fit this simple structure: if this then that”, their website claims, and it’s true, using this simple structure ifttt (pronounced ‘lift’ without the ‘l’) allows you to create a myriad of awesome programs with no programming experience needed. None at all. You connect your “channels” a.k.a. the services you use like email, Twitter, Evernote, Facebook, Google Reader and many many more. You use these channels to create a task, for example; when I star an entry in Google Reader send it automatically to my Evernote account.

 

Or, when Amazon adds a new book to the top 100 free ebooks for Kindle, send it to my Evernote or to my email address.

 

The ideas and uses are  limited only by your imagination. Your tasks also become “recipes” available for all users to grab and use with their personal channels. It’s neato and if you’re not using it you should be.

I’ve wanted to connect Google+ to ifttt.com for a while but there are few or no easy options for pulling Google+ content into an ifttt recipe.

Luckily, that is about to change.  gplusrss, an automatic feed creator for Google Plus. Just log in with your Google+ account and voila! A custom RSS feed. Sweet!

But first: Add me to your Google+ circles, I’d love to connect with you!



So this is what the full link to a RSS feed of my G+ profile looks like http://gplusrss.com/rss/feed/f8b8fc0160b2ac05373745da0f4af12652d3026b49e38, not very handsome, but it gets the job done, and I’m handsome enough for both of us (see above). Also, I wear cool shades.

Another good option is the feed from the people at Magenta River.

Now crack open ifttt.com hit the ‘create a task’ button, and let’s get the awesome started. Click ‘THIS’

and choose the ‘Feed‘ option.

 

Now you can choose a trigger, if you choose “New Feed Item” every time you post something to Google+ it will trigger your task, choosing “New Feed Item Matches” allows you to choose a keyword or phrase to trigger the task. For example, my task won’t trigger unless I include #sw in the post.

Insert your feed URL into the correct form box and Create Trigger, and you are ready to go. Now you can do whatever you want with your Google+ data. I use this to cross-post to Twitter, and it can easily be extended to other social networks, Facebook, LinkedIn, tumblr, and many more. You can also use it to save an archive of your posts using Dropbox, Evernote, Email, etc… You can use it for whatever you want.

One note, ifttt checks every 15 minutes for task triggers so don’t be surprised if it’s not instantaneous.

So go do it, I’m curious to hear what you do with your Google Plus RSS feed and ifttt. Comment below, or hit me up.

Steven out.

    • Thanks Chris. That post of yours is very good, I wouldn’t have thought of using a dedicated email address to post from Google+ to WordPress. How well does it format the posts, links, images etc…? Is it very buggy or pretty good?

    • Hey Justin, I could be wrong but I think you can post to Google+ via SMS, if so, ifttt can post all the RSS entries to an SMS to that number. Or if you can’t set up ifttt to that phone number, set up a new gmail Account, send all the RSS entries there and then have an auto forward set up to that SMS number.

  1. This http://gplus-to-rss.appspot.com/rss/ keeps breaking with the error message:

    Error when trying to get public G+ posts of user 112564607617850290297 : 403 OK { “code”: 403, “errors”: [ { “domain”: “usageLimits”, “message”: “Daily Limit Exceeded”, “reason”: “dailyLimitExceeded” } ], “message”: “Daily Limit Exceeded” }

    Is this due to the “quota” mentioned here: https://developers.google.com/+/api/

    “Applications are limited to a courtesy usage quota. This should provide enough access for you to preview the API and to start thinking about how you want to build your application. To see the courtesy limit and to request a higher limit for your application, please see the Google APIs Console. To learn more, see the Google APIs Console Help.”

    Who created http://gplus-to-rss.appspot.com/rss/ ?? How can a bigger daily quota be assigned? Please reply via G+

  2. Great workaround here for IFTTT which is AWEsome. I am using that, put like others here, also looking for hack TO G+. FYI, working on this hack from Twitter to G+ http://ifttt.com/recipes/4013 . It is more convoluted than you’d want, but it works. Other hacks use Google Voice. What is also interesting are those who go the other way and use Google Plus as the place to load content and send it out from there to Twitter, Facebook, even e-newsletters. That would involve rethinking your content processes.

    Another great hack I found is Pinterest to whatever, in particular Tumblr. You can get some great traction with Pinterest in your network.
