How to Add YouTube Subscribe Button in Blogger Blog

youtube-subscribe-buttonYouTube earlier launched a way to add channel subscription widget on your blog or website but that discontinued and now they have enabled another channel subscription button that can be embed on any website or blog and the best part is that you do not need any extra JavaScript to enable it if you are already using +1 button on your blog then that old JavaScript will work fine for this one too. So now you will only require the HTML for your subscribe button and then you will be able to display the code anywhere on your website.

Well the code is pretty small and you can just edit the channel name and use the code but if you are into personally getting the code for your website then you can go onto their website and get one’s for you too. Well if you need a working demo just check below button.

  1. Visit Google Developers Page [Link] and you will find the subscribe button maker, now just enter your channel ID and choose the theme and format.
  2. Well if you wanna go with the simple button like below I am using with my social media icons you can use the below code.

    <div class="g-ytsubscribe" data-channel="HackingUniversity" data-layout="full"></div>

  3. So now just change my channel username with yours and you are good to go, now your code is ready to be placed anywhere you would like to display this button.

So this button will surely help you out in increasing your YouTube subscribers which in return would reward you in more views and monetizing your videos, so have fun and do subscribe to my channel on YouTube as I will try to cover more and more tutorial’s right over there.
