How to connect your Google+ with Blogger

How to connect your Google  with Blogger
Connecting Google+ with Blogger is quite different from displaying profile in Blogspot or Blogger blog that is usually done using Blogger Gadgets. Blogger Gadget displays Google+ Badge as your Google+ profile, and default Blogger image as your Blogger profile depending on which (Google+ or Blogger) default profile is selected. Though, these can be edited but Blogger profile (Blogger badge) cannot be changed.

Connecting your Google+ with your Blogger blog means that you've already secured your accounts with Google+ and Blogger respectively, and while Google+ and Blogger profile displays about author (About Me) profile, connecting Google+ specifically with Blogspot or Blogger helps you share your posts automatically on your Google+ profile (timeline) or page managed by your Google+ profile. This could be a source of showing your face in the search engine snippet and building Google Authorship.
If you’re using Blogger profile in your Blogger blog, you can choose to switch or change your profile in Blogger to Google+ profile. Once your Google+ profile is connected with your Google account, your posts, comments, and About section will be matched to your real name or the name you used to register your Google account.
You need to let your Google+ profile prevail in your Blogspot or Blogger blog, since it help the readers know more about you. This can help you build author portfolio and advertising products and services through hyperlinks that can be integrated when editing Google+ ‘About Me’ profile. This could be a great source of building traffic engagement and sales.
Connecting Google+ with your Blogger blog (usually known as author’s profile) is a great deal for blogging success since Google+ profile can do alot more and stand you out when compared to Blogger profile that’s limited in features and functionalities like no ability to add photo, hyperlinks, search engine and authorship.
Connecting Google+ profile with Blogspot or Blogger blog helps you integrate Author’s Profile Widget that can be displayed below every post. This Author’s Profile is the best to manage blogging profile in Blogspot or Blogger blog, especially for Customized Blogger Template, since it specifically positioned the ‘About Author’ below every posts you contributed to (like guest post), provided the Author’s Profile Widget is also integrated in the same CMS like Blogger.
