Lost Google G+ Business Page (Brand Account)

Hello.

I accidentally deleted my original G+ page (Brand Account) while setting up Google for Business. I tried in vain to resurrect it, but to no avail.


Aside from losing the 400 or so followers I had, there is one post in particular that had an amazing stream of comments regarding a photograph I made while in Cuba. Here is the link:

Is this gone forever?
Thank you.

I am sorry to say, if you delete the page there is no way to recover it. You will need to start a new one.

Hello, Ben. The account stil exists in a fashion. My "Photographs from Posts" are all there. Just not the posts themselves.

Preston, it appears the page is gone, so nothing can be done for posts.

Hi @Preston T and @Ben Fisher

 

I think it might be possible.

 

While signed in to your Google account, try going here: https://plus.google.com/b/+prestonthomasnet

 

And see if you see "Enable Google+" in the left column.

If that doesn't work, try going here:

The enable Google+ link, if present, would look like this:

Thank you, Tom. I was able to enable the page, but alas, the posts are gone. The followers are still there, which is good. Now the question is whether I can merge the pages, or somehow move those followers to my current page.

Perhaps I will simply message them with the link to my current brand page.

@Preston T What is the URL of your current page? Is it a local page?
