With respect to +Kevin Rose, you should no more move your blog to Google+ than you should have to Geocities. Tap into social networks, use them to build your engagement, sure. But your own domain is for life. Google+ is not. Tomorrow, Google could close it, and while you can export your content, you cannot export all that link equity with it. Your posts will 404; that's not engagement. That's annoying. Being master of your own domain isn't just a funny Seinfeld episode. It's common sense, and it shouldn't be forgotten the moment a new flavor of social media Kool-Aid comes along.

- Nope, pretty much just approximations and word of mouth. Kevin also talked about it in some interview ive seen with him recently, but can't remember which 1... Either his foundation with Chris Sacca or his interview on FOWA.
p.s. I don't use either Digg or Reddit, so i can't provide any real insight on that but from what i've heard Digg is still bringing in decent amounts of money & is slowly growing back.Jul 11, 2011
- The only comment not on this post is the one from +Kevin Rose himself. I wonder what he has to say on this now that it's been a couple of days.Jul 11, 2011
- He moved his blog to G+ for the exact same reason as why your post has all these comments and over a hundred re-shares. :)Jul 11, 2011
- I actually disagree! I applaud Kevin for testing a theory and having the balls to move his entire property over to test it out!Jul 12, 2011
- I agree but for different reasons.Jul 16, 2011
- well said - Twitter, Facebook, and now G+ all provide an additional traffic source for you to build your own brand, your own audience, your own world... leverage resources, but don't sell your soul! Never leaving my blog at http:socialmediaseo.netJul 17, 2011
