So the plugins that claim to allow you to post to Google+ from WordPress usually have you go through a lot of effort while exploiting a loophole in Google Voice.
It seems that Google+ does not currently allow for auto-publishing so going directly from WordPress to Google+ is a non-starter.
A simpler way to go seemed to be to push the posts up to Blogger first since Blogger can auto post to Google+.
However Blogger seems to be smart enough to know that it came from WordPress first through a plugin and therefore won’t auto push the post onto Google+.
But the plugin does get it to Blogger and from there it can be manually shared to Google+ with a minimum of effort.
The WordPress plugin, Jetpack apparently will publish to Google+ but that is only for WordpPess.COM users. Since this is a self hosted blog I get support through WordPress.ORG instead. They do say that an update is coming that will allow the same functionality to self-hosted WordPress blogs.
WordPress.COM is a lot like Blogger in that a lot of stuff is locked down and you don’t really get to customize much of anything. You can do that for WordPress.COM but they charge you for that privilege. Since I’m self-hosted I can do whatever I feel like doing.
I have a plugin that found an old blog post that did have a link to a known malware site. Interestingly enough it’s an old post by US-CERT! :-) They had an alert with a bunch of known spambot sites listed in the report. So I just modified the report to point to the US-CERT site and removed the contents of the post. The post is over a year and a half old and hasn’t caused any issues until know. The plugin for finding this was WordFence. It listed the post and the URL in the post that was causing the issue. Twitter still can’t tell me which post it was and probably never will. WordFence for the most part is free and is very useful. Highly recommended.
