Connect your blog with Google+
The Google+ Profile feature in Jetpack adds a link to your Google+ profile here on your blog, while also adding your WordPress.com or WordPress.org blog to your Google account, making your posts on Google more visible and widely read.
It shows a “link to your Google+ in the sharing area of your posts” (Jetpack menu description); with a link to your profile on Google+, along with a Google+ follow button in the section below your post.
A link to your blog is also added to your Google+ profile, since this feature creates a connection between the two. The perk of having it connected on Google+ is that by knowing who on Google+ created WordPress blog posts, it may help increase search result accuracy.
Also noted in Jetpack’s description of its Google+ Profile feature: the ability to post comments on blogs using your Google+ account. This gives you the option of posting comments as a guest (entering your own details), with your WordPress account, or a social media account (now Google+ is one of them!).
To active this new Jetpack feature, go to your Settings tab within your Dashboard, clicking on “Sharing”. Beneath your Publicize options will be a specific section for connecting with your g+ profile; it’ll look like this:
You can opt to change some of these options (such as narrowing down the list of contacts in Google that WordPress can access and/or changing who can see your activity on Google.
I noticed that this connection will only link to your Google+ profile page; it doesn’t give an option for linking to your business page on Google, so if you use such a page on plus.google.com to promote your business, unfortunately it won’t work for you. If you do want to connect directly to your profile page on Google+ though, this is what it should look like below your blog posts once you’ve implemented the Google+ Profile application through the Jetpack plugin:
