Just like Facebook comment box Google also provides Google Plus commenting system to blogger blogs. Nowadays social media's have more impact than newspapers, the number of social media users are huge and increasing day by day. So, if you want to get rid of the oldest and ugly blogger comment box, I strongly recommend you to use Google plus commenting system in your blog.

Google+ is a popular social network which has millions of active users worldwide, we can use this popularity to get higher exposure to our blog. Integrating Google+ comment box is very easy and it has more features compared to default comment box

More comments, good and keyword rich comments are always good in terms of SEO, if someone posts a reply from Google+, it will show below your blog post which means comments from Google+ will automatically display on your blog

I will explain how to implement Google plus commenting system in two steps

1. If you're using blogger profile switch it into Google+ profile

How to switch to Google+ profile:

Log in to your account and select the blog you want to add Google+ comment box, then from dashboard go to settings and navigate to user settings. Under 'General' click on Google+ and 'save setting'

How to turn on Google plus comment box:

Again from dashboard navigate settings and click on 'post, comments and sharing'. Under 'Google+ Comments',choose "Yes". At the top right, click Save settings

To turn off the Google+ comments follow the steps above but instead of Yes select "No"

Points to be noted before switching the account

The visitor should have a Google+ account to comment

If you used default Blogger comments, it will remain on your blog. Other commenting systems might not be kept when you switch into Google plus comments

Are you trying to get a new domain for your blog? Get it before switching to Google plus because if you change the domain of your blog, you'll loose all comments

Your blog's comments will disappear when you stop using Google plus comment box but they may continue to appear on Google+

Final word
