Time to Replace Google Friend Connect on Blogger.

I have been using Google Friends Connect Widget on my blog from a long time. However, I got a mail today from Blogger asking me to replace it with Google Plus Follower widget. The mail looked like this.
Increasing your Google Plus followers
Increasing your Google+ follower.

You have the option of replacing the Google Friend Connect widget with either Google+ follower widget or you may alternatively put a subscribe to email list option. 

▌ Add Google Plus Followers Widget to your blog.

♦ Go to Blogger Dashboard > Layout.

Add a gadget and in the "basic" list of gadgets, you will find Google+ Followers gadget.

♦ Click on "Add a gadget".

♦ Reposition your Google Plus Followers widget according to your site design. 

♦ After implementing, the widget will look something like this.

▌ Benefits of Google+ followers widget. 

♦  People visiting your blogs will be able to follow you with a single click without even the need of knowing your Google Plus profile. 

♦ A large number of followers means a large number of reach :)

Google has been trying to mix the Blogging and Google+ thing, like Showing your follower counts in search results.  This new mail from Google makes me think that Google+ will someday will play a major role in Search Engine Optimization.
