Blogger to integrate with Google+ – why all blogs should take note

Big changes in the blog world

There is a great possibility that commenting on all blogs (not just Blogger) is about to change dramatically. Google Operating System (GOS) blog first noticed that when users go in to edit their Blogger profile, a message at the top of the page says “Connect Blogger to Google+: Use your Google profile and get access to upcoming Google+ features on Blogger,” but the link is broken, although both URLs reference profile switching.

While Blogger profiles will most likely be replaced by Google+ Profiles (the same way Picasa profiles will likely be in the form of Google+ profiles as well), GOS opines that “maybe Blogger posts will automatically trigger Google+ posts and Blogger/Google+ comments will be synchronized. Friend Connect will be discontinued and Google+ could replace it.”

Seeing the bigger picture

What we see, however, is that if Blogger profiles are replaced, there is a great possibility that Google is working toward not only unifying all of their products under one profile (obviously), but could secretly be working toward a commenting/authentication system like Facebook wherein any blog can allow users to sign in with their Google+ Profile, comment and it be tied to their profile and automatically generate a status update. Creating a system comparable to Facebook could easily be improved by Google, not only aesthetically but it could solve the problem of slow page loads many people complain Facebook’s commenting system creates.

Because websites still serve the Google Gods and spend a great deal of time and money to be fully optimized, it is likely that a Google+ commenting system or authentication system for comments would be the preferred system as site owners serve their own interests by making Google happy, and the chances of comments being indexed are likely higher, although Google would probably not officially claim as much. Look out for what we suspect could be big changes in the blogging world.
