Location Page vs Brand Page

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi.

I'm working with a client that has a G+ profile (with no content and 1 follower) and a G+ brand page (lots of content and 3.5k followers), under the same Google account login.

There is an issue in that when they go to share their own blog posts by clicking the G+ share button within the post on their website, the article is shared on their G+ profile, rather than the desired brand page.

Any ideas how to make the G+ brand page the default for sharing articles in this way? Is it just a case of deleting the profile? I'm nervous about doing this as I don't know if this will also delete their brand page/entire G+ account.

Thanks

Tom

Hi @Thomas H

 

If you are clicking from the actual blog post, it will go into the 1st initial account set on that profile you are logged into.

 

The easy way, is to just copy the link and post as usual in the page you want to post it in.

 

Or use a social media sharing platform where you can select which profile to post onto.

Thanks Tim.

So, just to be clear, there is no way of deleting the 'profile' and just
keeping the business page as the only G+ page for my client?

Best regards

Tom
