Google Plus is becoming a fast friend of mine, albeit a little difficult to lets say chat with on the phone. I’ll get to that later.
I made a Google Plus page a long time ago, gave it a Custom URL and started getting followers. Then along came Google. They created a Page for me. Hmmm. Sent me a card. and I was verified. No Wait. The wrong page was verified.
So I went about trying to verify the first page with the followers. No Go. Someone had my page and I was to get admin rights. Nooooo! I am that person.
I thought, I’ll Merge the Pages! Now some of Google will say, yes we can do that, and some will say no we can’t.
Merging Google Plus Pages
A nice woman at Google was busy looking under the Gear icon for Settings and then Profile
She got stuck when trying to find Profile – it seems they moved it. I sympathized.Then she sent me these instructions. It seems it is at the bottom of the page!
So you’ll go into your dashboard of the “LOCAL” page
Click the”GEAR WHEEL”
Go to “SETTINGS”
Scroll all the way down the page
The second section form the bottom is “Profile”
You will click the “CONNECT A DIFFERENT PAGE”
Choose your brand page and “CONFIRM”
This will then link the two and you’ll be all good to go. Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
Oh Joy! All good and well, but it told me I didn’t own any other pages. Drat. I was back at the beginning. These are good instructions however. Keep them.
I finally decided to bite the bullet and delete the second page that Google had created. Tadaa! One Google Plus Page! +WellmanWorksMarketing. SUCCESS!
