Add a Google+ Profile Link In Your Blogger Post

Looking to spark a conversation and create excitement with a blog post? Does grabbing some of your social networks attention, sound exciting to you? Will being able to add a link to a Google+ profile, within your blog post, make a difference?

Well, hold onto your horse, Blogger, which is Google's blog platform, has just released one of the best direct Google+ integration updates I have ever seen. A few housekeeping items that may make or break you feeling the excitement that I do. First, you need to use Blogger as your blog platform, second, you really need to have a basic understanding of how Google+ works.

So, here's the bread and butter, to mention someone on Google+, just type "+" before their name while you're using the Blogger post editor. The Google+ profile or page will then show up as a link in your published post. This is a great way to credit an author (thanks +Brandon Schaefer), ask a question, or just kick off a dialogue.

My ask is that you give this a try by mentioning one of your Google+ contacts in your next post and by connecting your Blogger blog to Google+.
