How can I get the Google+ network?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have a verified business listing, it is published on My Business, but I can't get it published on Google+ network and don't have a straight link to it.
A few months ago the option "Enable Google+" was available for all my listings and I don't find it anymore.
Please advice how I can get a clean and accessible link for everyone on Google+.
Also I see all my listings in "Locations" category, but I don't see them in "Brand Accounts".
The other issue, for some of my listings I receive this message "Whoops! You're using an account that can't go here." when I click on Manage Account button.

Please help me to find the solution.

Hi,

Since a few days I've got the same problem : I have activated two new GMB pages but the G+ link do not appear anymore.

I did not find any official announcement of Google about that. 

Does it mean that G+ business / brand pages will close ?

 Hi,

 

Google My Business (GMB) and Google+ are now separate platforms. This means you need to think about and utilize them independently, such like Facebook and Twitter. Google+ is a great platform that shows no signs of slowing or going anywhere. Please use this information to learn more about your Google+ pages. 

 

Once you end up on your Google+ page, you can copy the address from the address bar and add that to your web properties. You can also use the free Google URL Shortener tool, which makes the address much shorter and you can track clicks on it. And... Once you qualify, you can get a custom URL.

 

Hope this information helps.

 

Kind Regards,

 

James

Hi,

Many thanks.

Indeed the G+ is still alive but I had to go and activate it from G+ : it is done. I suppose it remains important for a GMB client.

Thank you so much for your explanation!
So, if I understand correctly, I need to create separately Google My Business (GMB) and Google+
Will Google stick these pages together later?  Did someone had such an experience?
And do I need to verify the Google+ page somehow?
So, people will leave their reviews on Google My Business, right?

Thank you in advance!

Hello is there any response to this issue?

 

1) We currently have a GMB page verified here: https://www.google.com/search?q=Index%2020%20California%20Street%20San%20Francisco&ludocid=150416347...

 

2) I do not have the Google+ icon option like I do for other GMB listings in my account: http://prntscr.com/h4enqy

 

3) When I go to http://myaccount.google.com/brandaccounts I do not see the index.com brand account in there.

 

4) When I go to "Manage Account" (http://prntscr.com/h4eone) from the dropdown and go to "edit account info" (http://prntscr.com/h4ep13) I get this error: http://prntscr.com/h4eqc2  Please note I am a manager on this account but the primary owner of the account gets the same error as well. 

 

Any help with this issue would be appreciated so we can have one account with all Google products (apps) like the rest of my business listings.

 

So I guess the question is how do I get a branded Google+ account and have the ability to switch between the two as needed?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Best,

Thomas

Hi Anastacia,

 

You are welcome. 

 

You are correct on all fronts... and I would add that no, Google has no plans to stick these platforms (GMB & G+) together again. These are dependent and unique platforms and we all must accept this to best understand their usage and operations. 

 

You can use this information to learn about Google+ Create, which is a way to qualify for a verification badge on your Google+ page. 

 

And you can use this information to gain more insight into the operations of your Google+ pages. And the official Google+ Help Community is full of tips & tricks to gain even more. I would use that for all things Google+ and come back to us here for GMB assistance.

 

Kind Regards,

 

James
