Lots of site updates everywhere - Part 2: Google+
#kolblog #kolgoogleplus  

More updates, this time on Google+.  In a follow-up to this post about +Google+ being my blog:
https://plus.google.com/104405539079062799451/posts/XBFobf4qR6B I've now redirected my domains elsewhere (again more on those later).  Suffice to say the experiment failed.  It failed because:

1.  The search operator "inurl:" has disappeared
2.  Saved searches need cleaning up, e.g. need the ability to give saved searches a name rather than display the full string which is untidy
3.  The search URL for "everywhere" and "from you" are the same so there is no ability to filter on your own posts only from a URL address
4.  There is no easy way to filter out reshares in search results
5.  Google+ needs more advanced blog-like features  - not as advanced as +Blogger but certainly a little more advanced than the current G+ feature set, like bold, italic formatting etc.)

Once Google+ fixes and implements these changes then I'll take a look at the experiment again.  For now, it's scrapped!

Also, following up from my post about my "table of contents" on Google+ here:
https://plus.google.com/104405539079062799451/posts/EfauonCfzyW I've updated my TOC.  So if you want to follow my posts by a certain topic then you can use these URLs:

They are simply search results pages.  The work has been done with all the hashtags I've added in my posts.  Sadly a lot of the older posts are not included this time - I was getting way too much misses.  So I've had to include a specific hashtag that signifies when I want a post to be included in the TOC: #kolt  

It's not tidy and a lot of work but I can't see a better way of doing this.  If Google+ had an optional extra where we could tag or label our posts like we can in Blogger than that would be great.  I'm not keen on them being displayed myself.

Also, the formating issue is a biggie, I could really do with the <a href=""</a> option for example.  Or the edit box we all have for our Google+ Profiles, why can't this be implemented in Google+ itself?  It's a basic set of formatting buttons but makes such a difference.


Below are the long URLs as I know mobile users have found the shortened ones don't work.  You'll also find my "table of contents" on my About page (which use the long URLs):
