Have You Seen The New Google+ Commenting System?

SMS Text

Today is a groundbreaking day for Google Bloggers. If you’re on G+ and you use Google’s blogging platform, Blogger, then you’re going to love this new update. Today they released their new Google + commenting system.

I just recently started using a Blogger blog and when I heard about the new commenting system, I hurried to activate it. Let me show you what the commenting system looks like and then tell you how to activate it for yourself.

What do you guys think about this?

Sleek isn’t it? I believe it will make managing comments much easier. While you’re checking your email, you’ll get G+ updates and comment updates. All in one place. I love it!

One last thing that makes this new update incredible is the ability for people to choose whether or not they want their comments to be public or private. 🙂

How do you activate the new comments?

First you need to connect your blog with G+ and let Google know that you’re a contributor to the blog. Second, you need to select settings. Once you’re on the settings page, you’ll see the Google + tab on the left side bar.

Click that. This picture should help ya 🙂

Let me know if you have any difficulty setting it up. I’m wondering if they’ll add this feature to the whole internet. That’d be nice wouldn’t it?

    That is cool, being able to keep a comment private or public is a nice feature. Thanks for the enthusiastic post Adam, we SEOers are good at appreciating the little things in life 🙂

    Yes I have seen it when it published on Googleblog.blogspot.com of Google. This is true it generates the web traffic.

    Take my word on it, Google+ will eventually become the spinal cord in the backbone that will be supporting all Google services. It’s almost everywhere these days. 🙂

    Google blogging platform was a major powerhouse a few years ago – which lost the race to – wordpress and other much more user friendly platforms.
    This is a step in the right direction.

    I’ve read in other posts that Google will use Author Rank to show the most valuable comments at the top of the comments list. This could be extremely valuable to Authors and a very interesting development. Heard any more about this?

  • Tory Reiss

    I think Google is doing thi s because Author Rank is harder to manipulate than page rank is, in terms of using SEO to improve visibility. By forcing developer to provide a rel=author in the head of their pages, it is much harder to claim or pass authority from pages. Basically content is KING.
