Do you want to get more subscribers on your YouTube channel? Having a subscribe button on your blog makes it easy for your visitors to find your videos and subscribe to your channel. In this article, we will show you how to add a YouTube subscribe button in WordPress. It will display a live preview of how your button will look on the website. Once you are satisfied, simply scroll down to copy the embed code. There you will need to drag and drop a text widget to your widget area, and paste the YouTube subscribe button code inside the widget.
Another way to add a YouTube subscribe button on your website is by adding it below every YouTube video on your site.
This offers additional exposure and can help you significantly increase your subscribers. First you need to install and activate the YouTube Subscribe Bar plugin. You will also need to style the button layout, choose a button theme, and show subscribers count. The YouTube subscribe bar plugin allows you to add some text before the button and edit its styling. Once you are done, make sure to click on the Save Changes button to save your settings.
This plugin will automatically display your YouTube Subscribe bar below every YouTube video on your site. The YouTube Subscribe bar will appear on the videos from your channel and third-party channels, so you can share useful video content on your site and get more subscribers on your YouTube channel.
Note: The YouTube subscribe bar plugin only works with oEmbed videos. It will not work with videos embedded via iFrame. We hope this article helped you add the YouTube subscribe button in WordPress. You may also want to check out our guide on how to track user engagement on your WordPress site.
