Google to Integrate Blogger with Google+

Search engine giant Google is planning to integrate its massively popular blogging platform Blogger with Google+.

In a blog post (opens in new tab), the company said that users will be able to link their Blogger accounts to their Google+ profiles to leverage the social networking platform.

But, sticking to its real-name policy, Google said that people using Blogger under a pseudonym will not be able to connect their Blogger accounts with Google +.

Google's Google+ social networking platform now has more than 40 million users only 4 months after its launch. Google had earlier announced that it will slowly start to integrate its numerous web products with Google+ to offer a complete web experience to users.

"Today we're excited to announce the first way you will be able to leverage Google+ -- by making it possible to replace your Blogger profile with your Google+ profile," the company said.

"In addition to giving your readers a more robust and familiar sense of who you are, your social connections will see your posts in their Google search results with an annotation that you've shared the post," it informed.

The option to link Blogger with Google+ is available only to test users for now but, will be rolled out to the general public in the coming weeks.
