On Domains and Blogs

With respect to +Kevin Rose, you should no more move your blog to Google+ than you should have to Geocities. 
Tap into social networks, use them to build your engagement, sure. But your own domain is for life. Google+ is not. 
Tomorrow, Google could close it, and while you can export your content, you cannot export all that link equity with it. Your posts will 404; that's not engagement. That's annoying. 
Being master of your own domain isn't just a funny Seinfeld episode. It's common sense, and it shouldn't be forgotten the moment a new flavor of social media Kool-Aid comes along.

Briliant advice from Danny Sullivan, at his Stream wall, in GooglePlus.
