Google enables downloading of Blogger blogs and Google+ pages

Google has added the ability to download Blogger blogs and Google+ pages to its Takeout data portability tool. This will allow users of these products to get a structured download of their data in a couple of widely accepted formats.

If you’d like to get your Blogger data, you can do so as separate Atom Xml files for each. Google+ Pages are split out into two different formats: html files with posts to your page and json files with the circles that your page is a part of. You can do all of your blogs or pages at once or pick one at a time to export.

Also, I’m not sure when it was done, but the Takeout tool appears to have been renamed Takeaway on its page, and it’s gotten a refresh that matches the rest of Google’s new sparser look. I’m not sure if the name change is permanent as the Google blog post on the matter still says ‘Takeout’, I’ll ask.

The Takeout service was created by an engineering team at Google whose job it is to make it easy for users to import and export their data from Google products. It’s called the Data Liberation Front.
