Google plus business page connecting social media to display on google searches

Been trying to find out how other companies do this because I have some clients that don't even have a website and they have at least a Facebook connected when I search them using google.com and I didn't do this myself.

 

I have searched all over the internet and found some guide with a script but no real answer on how I can implement this script and where do I even paste it with my credentials. If someone can direct me in the right direction with a short but sweet explanation that would be super wonderful so I can pass on this knowledge to others.

 

Cordially, Ramnel B.

I have also already checked out this link

That a "Specialist" replied to with false information I can provide multiple accounts with proof that her statement is incorrect and shows no substantial data to support it.

@Rammy B

 

you seem liking to blame people rather seeking help.

In the other thread @PriyaC gave an info based on the best of her knowledge in June.

 

@JoyHawkins also  confirmed  you now (today) we see such social links.

But we have not yet any exact knowledge how such links get triggered.

 

Soon we know more we can help you or other people better.

But blaming Top Contributors quoting them sarcastically  as "specialists" and blaming them giving false infromation  isn't the behavior we should expect from a user seeking help here in the forum

Thanks for chiming in Helmut. I fully agree that users on this forum really need to be respectful to the volunteers who try to help out.

Nope, I just believe that you shouldn't state things if you yourself don't know the answer to it because then that will misinform not only the person that asked the question but also anyone else that looks for the same question. Maybe using words like "could be or maybe this is why" so then that user can seek other forms of finding an answer.

Rammy,

She didn't misinform anyone. That post was made in June. The first time anyone spotted these on local listings was at the END of July . It was a guy in a community I'm in and I tweeted it, as referenced in that article.

Honestly, I don't really feel like responding much more to your threads. I don't really feel like helping someone that isn't polite.

So far the only way of doing this is VIA your own website so they must have a website URL for this to work.
https://developers.google.com/search/docs/data-types/social-profile-links#guidelines

Following this will help you get it connected the social media must be connected also to the website itself for it to be displayed.
