A website nowadays hasn’t just stayed just a website. Over the years, even a small website has desire to become a brand.
This is the reason why we now see websites being part of various social media sites. Nowadays, most websites (including this) have their own YouTube channel which creates an extension to their brand and webmasters too want their blog readers to subscribe them on Youtube.
There are multiple ways of doing so, but I’m going to show you three prominent ways of adding YouTube Subscribe button on your website.
Method 1 – Official Google Developers Method
Google Developers officially allows you to customize and add YouTube Subscribe button to your website. This is the most commonly used method by webmasters.
Google Developers offers plenty of modifications for the YouTube Subscribe button.
Now suppose, I want to create a similar YouTube Subscribe button for my channel; what I’ll do is first visit this page and scroll down a bit till you reach ‘Configure a button’ area.
There I’ll put name of my Youtube Channel (as seen in your channel URL)
I’ll put my channel name ‘Technofare’ in the ‘Channel Name or ID’ input field and keep the Layout and Theme as Full and Dark respectively.
Immediately on the right side under Preview section, I’ll get to see how the button will look and its code is generated below.
Paste this code on your website’s sidebar and you’re good to go.
You will then be able to see your YouTube channel Subscribe button on your website.
Method 2 – Setting YouTube button as iFrame
This is another simple method introduced by our fellow Indian blogger Amit Agarwal on his own site.
All you have to do is paste this below code on sidebar of your site and you’ll be able to see your YouTube Subscribe button
<iframe src=”http://www.youtube.com/subscribe_widget?p=XYZ” style=”overflow: hidden; height: 105px; width: 300px; border: 0;” scrolling=”no” frameBorder=”0″></iframe>
All you have to do is, paste your YouTube username replacing XYZ; in my case it is ‘Technofare’ on your sidebar and it will look something like this below.
You can later adjust the width and height and modify the frame as per your choices.
Method 3 – WordPress YouTube Subscribe Button plugin
If you hate coding of any kind and just don’t want to mess up with HTML tags then this method is right for you.
All you have to do is search for ‘YouTube Subscribe button’ in your WordPress plugin directory and install it.
Here too, once the plugin is installed go to Appearance >> Widgets; drag YouTube Subscribe button widget to sidebar and enter your YouTube Username, in my case I’ll do ‘Technofare’ and you’re good to go.
These three were most prominent method to show a YouTube Subscribe button on your website.
The first two methods works on all kinds of sites like WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr, Weebly, etc. and even self developed websites; only the third method is specially for WordPress
