You Can Now Embed the YouTube Subscribe Button on Your Website

So here's something awesome: YouTube is now making the subscribe button "embeddable" on your website.  That's pretty rad.  That gives your site some functionality for your channel; it's a nice touch.  What this means is that anywhere people can access your site, they can subscribe.  And since YouTube is pretty much everywhere, well, your "subscribe" button just gets more exposure.  Now, I guess most people who would visit your site are already subscribed, but maybe your website will be the final "sale" in the deal.  You never know what will make someone press that button.  We've talked before about how to make one for your site, but now YouTube has made it easy.

The YouTube Subscribe Button Embed Code

Here's the code:

<script src="https://apis.google.com/js/plusone.js"></script>
<div class="g-ytsubscribe" data-channel="Your Channel Name Here">
</div>

Here's what it looks like on Vice's website (courtesy of the YouTube Creator Blog):
