Use your public Google+ profile on your blogs

In short : Go to http://draft.blogger.com/switch-profile.g and do the necessary changes. Make sure to read all the caveats on the page.

In long : Google now lets you use your public Google+ profile on your blogs. What are the advantages? Google lists the below


  • Get access to upcoming Google+ features on Blogger
  • Highlight your posts in Google search results for your social connections
  • Maintain one identity

So what will happen if I enable the post? 

My profile will start looking what is on the right of the image below, unlike what you see now: that is on the left of the image.


What are the caveats?

Google lists the below two.
  • Upon switching to your Google+ profile, you will have the option of reverting back to your Blogger profile for 30 days. After that, your Blogger profile data will be deleted.
  • Information on your Blogger profile won't be transferred to your Google+ profile, so copy your Blogger profile information to your Google+ profile before switching.
But what about the real life scenarios?
   When you are maintaining more than one blog, you may prefer to have different biographies for different blogs. However even the current blogger profiles don't allow it :P Or do they allow? If true leave a comment how to enable it. I will switch back.

Why should I enable this feature ?
    Google is selling the idea of Identity big time now. Though they have their own perks for doing it, it can be advantageous to the end users like us too.
  1. Maintain one identity : Maintaining a single identity on the net(at-least google for the time being), will reduce the amount of efforts we put into this menial task. Having a single identity can help your audience to have a better understanding of you. You don't need to remember who you are at a given instance ;)
  2. Highlight your posts in Google search results for your social connections : So what this means is : When a friend of yours(anybody in your circles) is trying to search for anything, post written by you will get a preference over others in the google results. Google author tag is not popular yet, but as it gets popular having a unique identity on google helps as others will start using the tag to display that you are author of some piece of work and that greatly enhances the chances of your articles turning up in searched that include your name. It can also add a slew of followers to your Google+ account, who were actually looking for just some content written by you. Remember Google is gonna make adding the authors from google search to the your circles, one click process.
  3. Get access to upcoming Google+ features on Blogger : This is the list important according to me. But it will be good to have the similar interface on both Google+ and blogger. And more over we can see the new features of Google+ on blogger which is nice.
