Google Page or Profile

Last Update: September 08, 2016

Hi all, how are you today?

Yesterday I was going through all my stuff to catch up and I decided to check out Buffer to schedule my posts to my social accounts and for Google+ they told me I couldn't add a profile account and needed a page instead.

In case you don't know, as I didn't, profiles are personal and pages are for business. Kind of like Facebook.

So I went ahead and created my page, which is exactly the same as my profile one. But NOW, I have to add all the posts onto my page and I will need to get all the business contacts on my page..

If you have connected with me on Google+, could I ask you to go to my page and follow me there? You can find the link on my profile page. I'll start adding more posts on it. It's in progress.

Here's some more info from Google https://support.google.com/plus/answer/6004997?hl=en

Thanks everyone!

You would need to post the link to your page, though!
And, before you can create a page you Needed to have a profile! And on G+ the etiquette is connecting with PEOPLE and not with BUSINESSES. That means you first create connections via your profile and then send people to your page.

Ah ok!! I created the profile ages ago and should have created a business page when I started at WA to start adding posts to it and followers...

If you want the link for my page you can find it on my profile page. I don't want to be spammy ;-)

I can go hunt it down - or you can put it up here where YOU are asking that we follow it.

You figure it out.

We shouldn't add our links in posts and so redirect people to our profile. That way it's not spammy.
