Why migrate your content?

Some folks have asked, “Why should I bother migrating my Google+ content at all?” Here are some reasons. Not all will apply to everybody.

1. “It is amazing content.” Some people have created essays, analysis, photographs, discussions, or other content that makes the world a better place. Why not preserve it for future generations?
2. “But I never made anything fancy, I just reshared links or memes.” Don’t forget that even reshared links and memes may have served as a watering hole for others to comment on or discuss. Some of the most worthwhile content on Google+ is hidden in comments on these posts. Make sure you use a solution like Google+ exporter that preserves all the comments too.
3. “No, really, nobody ever commented on my stuff much.” Even if there is no great discussion in the comments, even simple reshare links are often things you may want to refer back to in the future. Imagine yourself next year thinking, “Darn. I remember that I shared a link on Google+ last year about this. I sure wish I could search my old posts to find it again.” If it was interesting enough for you to share in the past, it may well be something you want to see again.
4. “I just posted memes and silly stuff I’ll never want to see again.” Okay. But what about everyone who followed you? I can’t tell you how many times I have thought, “I remember that Jessica Malarkey posted a hilarious meme about that a couple of years ago.” Google search usually finds the post if I put in the persons name and a few keywords. If you transfer your content someplace new that Google and other search engines can search, you will be helping out the rest of us. Thanks!
5. “I don’t think I ever really had any followers.” See #4. People may have seen your stuff without you knowing.
6. “I never posted publicly, and it was all silly in-jokes anyway. And I didn’t have any followers.” Okay, maybe it’s not worth it for you to migrate your data anywhere.

Google+ Exporter makes it easy to export all your data and to import it to Blogger or Wordpress. Why not just do it?

Note: Google+ Exporter keeps getting bug fixes and improvements. I recommend downloading all your data with it now, but only experimenting with the upload until the last possible minute. It is easy to refresh your downloaded data with new versions of G+E without having to download everything again. My plan is to keep downloading with newer versions right up until 4/2, and then cutover to Blogger or Wordpress then.

Want to rescue your G+ Community from the Google Shutdown in April?

This tool allowed me to migrate the community GlobalistWatch.com to a new Wordpress home at GlobalistWatch.org.

The tool costs $20 but is totally worth it. It worked flawlessly and 37'000 posts are now saved!

(In contrast, Google Takeout screwed me over 12 ways to Sunday. What a surprise.)

I downloaded all my public and collection posts from Google+ with the +FriendsPlusMe tool (https://plus.google.com/collection/Q4zzPF).

29,173 posts, 8,128 images.

I think I might want to be selective about which of those I add to WordPress.

There's a new Google+ Exporter release 1.7.5

Google+ Captcha protection workaround. Posts download will be slower but should be robust enough to survive the Captcha protection, and embedded Tor service provides new IP addresses in case the Captcha protection activates during the download.

Download from https://gplus-exporter.friendsplus.me

* NEW workaround for Google+ Captcha using Tor anonymizer https://www.torproject.org and posts download speed significantly reduced, so captcha protection is not activated that often.

Google deployed Captcha solution that prevents the G+ exporter tool to do its work.

Please, send feedback to Google if you are affected by this. You can follow +Edward Morbius recommendation from the comment below. Thank you!

We're working on a solution.
