3rd party reviews

When I am on the review for a 3rd party and I go to share it on G+, it will only share to my personal page. I even deleted personal page and it still takes me to personal page. I need the review to share on my business page.

Hi Angela

If I'm reading your question correctly you've seen a review for your business online, and you'd like to share it as an update on your Google listing?

There's a couple of ways I'd recommend doing this - either as a photo or by logging in as your business page and sharing it as an update.

Sharing it as a photo (in my opinion) is the best way to share a 3rd party review - take a screenshot of the review and then upload it as a photo. The reason I recommend this, is because it's easy and because photos do show up when people are searching for your business, products or services.

Photos are also easy to use in other places.

I don't recommend the second way - sharing it as an update - as Google+ posts are not generally shown in search results outside of Google+ so not many people will see the review at all. Also, under the new G+ layout it is quite tricky to get to the area that allows you to log in as your page.

If you'd really like to share the review as an update on your Google+ page though then please let me know on this forum and I'll set out the steps necessary. (I'd still go with the photo!)
