2012 was a year in which I started placing a much higher emphasis on my YouTube channel.
2013 will be a year in which I plan to really crank out a lot of YouTube content, more so than last year.
My YouTube stats for 2012 really increased and I’ll do a blog post pretty soon about my 2012 year in review.
Today I just want to show you how to add a YouTube subscribe widget to your website.
I can’t really say just how well a widget like this will do because there are no metrics to measure it by.
I do think it’s a great widget to add simply for convenience and I can’t see any negatives to it.
I just added it to every page here on my blog and also the sidebar. I use WordPress on this site and works great.
Simply add the following code anywhere on your site where you want the widget to appear.
<iframe id=”fr” src=”http://www.youtube.com/subscribe_widget?p=add YouTube Username here” style=”overflow: hidden; height: 105px; width: 300px; border: 0;” scrolling=”no” frameBorder=”0″></iframe>
Pay special attention to where it says “add YouTube Username here”. Just add your YouTube user name in place of this text.
Customize YouTube Subscribe Widget
You can also easily customize & resize the YouTube subscribe widget to fit your needs.
Just change the height and width pixel (px) numbers. I changed my width pixels to 285px to fit in my sidebar.
I like the way the YouTube widget shows your avatar, number of videos and number of subscribers you have.
I won’t overkill mine and place it here in the blog post. Just look over in the sidebar to see mine or down at the bottom of this post.
While you are looking, why not go ahead and subscribe to my YouTube channel?
Hope this helps you. Now go out and make some YouTube videos.
