Where to find my Google+ profile after the pluspocalypse.

I created a new website on WordPress.com to serve as a backup of my Google+ Profile. That way, I will not loose any of my Google+ posts #AfterThePluspocalypse. My new website is https://BenKeyGPlus.wordpress.com/.

I created the new website using the Google+ Exporter found at https://medium.com/google-plus-exporter.

I highly recommend this application. It runs on GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows.

After some initial skepticism, I finally tried this tool – and – I am sold.

After some initial skepticism, I finally tried this tool – and – I am sold.

This tool can export in a well documented JSON format, as well as in WordPress eXtended RSS (WXR=XML). It can grab your profile posts, pages, collections, and communities, both posts and comments.

If you have a WordPress site, you can directly import all your G+ posts from the latter. Note that the export tool does not download the images, but the WP importer can do that for you.

The following appears to not be included

– +1’s

but those are hardly relevant after you migrate content.

So – if you want to grab your G+ content, don’t waste your time on Google Takeout, as that is a total mess. This is hands down the best G+ export tool I’ve tried so far.
