You’ve set up your Google My Business Page and you’re now getting more involved in the social/connection side of Google Plus as your Page rather than your personal Profile. Inevitably, there will come a point when you are reading around the web and want to +1 or share the article as your Page or comment on Google+ enabled comments as your Page.
You click the share button or start to comment and see you are logged in as your Google+ Profile.
There are work-arounds for sharing to your Google My Business Page. A simple copy and paste of the link to your Page or use a scheduling app like Buffer. But no matter how you hold your mouth, stare and swear at the screen is it possible to +1 or comment as your Google My Business Page on blogs around the web.
Of course, it is possible to +1, share and comment as your Google My Business Page. You need to be logged in as your Page’s Google Account. You can’t access it by default, but need to set up a password in your settings. The video below shows you how.
How To Create A Google Account For Your Google Plus Page
1. Sign into your Google My Business Page
2. Go to settings
3. Scroll down to ‘Third-party tools’ and click the set up a password button
4. Re-enter your Google password
5. Choose a password for your Page Google Account
You can now login to Google directly as your Google My Business Page and +1, share and comment where available around the web.
A Handy Tip Or Two
You’ll notice in the video I log out of my personal Google account and log back in as my Google Plus Page. I do this because I have access to several Google accounts for clients and I prefer to log out to avoid embarrassing mistakes!
If you use the Chrome browser you have access to the Chrome profile management tool. Here you can log into different Google accounts without logging in and out by selecting a Chrome profile. Logging into Chrome automatically logs you into Google.
Just click the profile selection button in the top right corner of Chrome to set up a profile for your Google Plus Page.
If you want to comment on Blogger blogs as your Page Google account, make sure you are signed in Google and pop over to Blogger.com before you leave your very first comment. Blogger should show your Page description, scroll all the way to the bottom of the page and click the button. Now when leaving a comment on Blogger, you’ll show as your Page account rather than Google (unknown profile).
