Create Unique QR Codes For Your Blog Posts

CONNECT WITH HBB ON SOCIAL MEDIA

A QR code is a specific matrix barcode that is readable by dedicated QR barcode readers and mobile phones.

By adding QR codes to your blog posts you can enhance mobile users’ experience and they can visit the URLs easily by that. Earlier I showed you how to generate QR codes using Goo.gl. Now we’ll see how to generate QR codes for your blog and blog posts.

Creating QR Codes For Blog Posts

We are using Google Chart Tools for doing this. You just need to add the following code in single.php file or anywhere you want.

<img src=”http://chart.apis.google.com/chart?cht=qr&chs=150×150&chld=L|4&chl=<?php the_permalink(); ?/>” width=”150″ height=”150″ alt=”QR code” />

or

<img src=”https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?chs=150×150&cht=qr&chl=<?php the_permalink(); ?/>&choe=UTF-8″ width=”150″ height=”150″ alt=”QR code”/>

Creating QR Code For Your Blog

HBB QR Code

For the main URL, https://hellboundbloggers.com, I can use this for generating QR Code.

http://chart.apis.google.com/chart?cht=qr&chs=200×200&chl=https://hellboundbloggers.com

You can also add QR code parameters to customize how you want it to be. You can scan it with your QR code scanner and check whether it is working or not.

You can try QR Code Plugin for adding QR codes in Blogger.

      I use a "bookmarklet" — that is, I create a bookmarket that has a bit of JavaScript in it — that makes a QR code of whatever URL I'm on now. To do that (on Firefox, other browsers make be different), right-click on the Bookmark bar, select "New Bookmark…", set the name to anything useful like "QR" and set the location to

      javascript:window.location="http://chart.apis.google.com/chart?chs=250×250&cht=qr&chl="+escape(window.location)

      You can use to generate the QR's for later use, or just if you want to see something on your phone, press the "QR" button and scan the resulting image with your phone.

        A mobile theme should be simple, so I would recommend you to make one using Google Reader : http://hellboundbloggers.com/2009/04/02/make-mobile-version-of-blog-with-google-readers/

        Or you can also try MobilePress plugin. 🙂

      Hi,

      Just want to know the benefits of having bar-code in our blog ?

      • S.Pradeep Kumar

        It will be very useful when you are targeting mobile users mate.

        • rebeccahappy

          Regardless of them being helpful to mobile users, I understood that if your site is not mobile friendly they are not really helpful. Could you please elaborate on this. Thanks

          • S.Pradeep Kumar

            Rebecca, even if your site is not really optimized for mobile, QR codes can still be useful. Mobile users will not be comfortable with typing stuffs, so these can really decrease the load.
