Testing Blogger and Google+: Will This Work?

One of my frustrations with Google+ has been the (ironic) lack of visibility of Google+ posts on search results. So after some investigation, I found out that you can link your Google+ account to your blogger blog.
Benefits of a Blogger Blog for Google+ (and SEO!)

My experiment is to create a blog for my Google+ postings, and then post directly to this new blog rather than directly to Google+. Then with a little help from SEO, get the new blog (which will be populated with Google+ postings) to show up on Google.

Why?



Benefits of Blogger and Google+ Integration



  • Ease-of-use. Using the blogger platform will give me lots of flexibility in posting, and the ability to have longer posts.
  • Integration with Google+. The new posts will appear both on my Google+ feed and on my blogger blog - so the "short read" will exist on Google+ and the "long read" will appear on the blog.
  • SEO Visibility - posts will appear in Google search and therefore pull in some new people who will find me not through Google+ directly but through search.
