Google has slowly but surely adding Google+ integration with its ages-old blogging platform, Blogger. On Monday, the company announced that users can now share blog posts to Google+ automatically.
This is one of those things that seems like a no-brainer, and a surprise that Google didn’t enable a long time ago, but either way, it’s here now.
“Notifying your followers that you’ve published a new blog post not only gets the conversation going, it encourages them to reshare your content with others,” says software engineer Marc Ridey. “In this way it’s critical for growing your blog’s audience and engagement. But it takes time. And we want to give you that time back.”
You just have to connect a Google+ page or profile to your blog, and the feature will start working the next time you publish a post.
“If you’d rather not share to Google+, or you’d prefer to be prompted each time, you can adjust your preferences in the Google+ tab of your Blogger Dashboard,” says Ridey.
Last July, they launched general Google+ sharing for blogger.
