Anonymous blogging on Google+

Google+ can send you readers whether you plus or not.

But odds are that's not going to happen often unless someone actively promotes your blog. So you might wonder if it is a good idea to join Google+ to get readers and blog traffic and search reputation.

Google+ profiles bear owners' real names. For some bloggers that makes G+ a nonstarter.

However, your G+ account does not need to be the same as your blogging account (though it can be). You can set things up so that there is no link to your Google+ identity from your blog.

You do need a Google+ account, using your real name, to play. But you don't need to connect that account to your blog.

You can use an "unattached" G+ account to promote your blog by sharing blog posts to people in your circles or publicly. Each link will be a one-way connection from your G+ identity to your blog, but not the other way.

You can even connect your blog to a Google+ identity in ways that do not show on your blog. Here's how.
