2. On the right side of the page, type “YouTube blog widget” into the Search Box.

3. There you will find selections of posts, choose the one that says “YouTube Blog: 1 Billion Subscriptions and Counting“.

4. At the end of the blog post you will find the following code… copy this code by right clicking your mouse, then Copy.

<iframe id=”fr” src=” YouTube Username here” style=”overflow: hidden; height: 105px; width: 300px; border: 0;” scrolling=”no” frameBorder=”0″></iframe>

      Hey House Cleaning,

      Thanks for the kind words…

      I removed all the wording that you put in the Author box… you can’t be doing that buddy! It’s not going to earn you any points with the search engines by doing that, if anything it is going to get you flagged as spam, so please don’t do it again.

      Thank you for stopping by and commenting.

    Great idea. I have been looking for something to help with YouTube subscribers but your idea to include the code in a text widget is very creative. I am still looking for a button to put above, below, or somewhere near the videos, but a widget may be the thing to do instead. Thanks for the idea

    That’s a good idea I’ll have to implement that in the proper blog. Maybe do a small video on the subjects matter.

    Youtube is working on a more creative widget. The current widget is classy but not attracting. I’ve added the subscribe button to my video site. 😀
