Set up 404 Alerts in Google Analytics

Share blog posts on Google Plus

It's crucial for growing your blog's audience and engagement. But often times, one does not have the time to manually open social media pages, and share a post. Keeping this in view, Google has added a new feature to blogger, which allows bloggers to automatically share their blog posts on Google Plus.

Duplicate Content is bad!
As a blogger or content creator, or even a SEO, you always run the risk of getting your online content ripped off and copied. It's a risk because even though search engines might be getting smarter at detecting the original source of some duplicate content, it isn't always easy. And there's no guarantee that the original source will be determined every time, and the duplicated content penalized. Not only do you end up competing against your 'own content' so to speak, search engines also try to eliminate duplicate copies of some content, which could result in your content's elimination altogether.

17 Comments so far



The Google Plus comments integration with Blogger is turning quite some heads now, and a lot of bloggers have gone ahead and implemented it. This seems to be one of the biggest improvements in Blogger over the recent past. And at first glance, it looks pretty slick, with a clean and solid implementation. It makes things really easy, especially for bloggers who can track the conversation more easily. At the same time, readers can contribute right from Google Plus, without needing to open the blog. However, upon closer inspection, it seems that the new implementation isn't without its flaws.
