I recently asked the question about changing the URL in my G+ account to be relevant to my niche. As always there was an amazing response from the WA community and I found out how to do do it.
Now I have another problem, my G+ account is very old. I created it way back when I was new to social media and I have already changed the URL. G+ only allow 1 change so I cannot change it to be relevant to my niche.
Now my problem is this account is very well established with credibility and a large following. What should I do? Create a new account and start again or stick with the current one and the URL that is not relevant to my niche.
The URL is close, in the same broad niche but not the targeted niche I am looking at now.
Cheers Kev

This is a "bridge building" type solution. You use the current span while you build a new construct along side it. Once done, you can move your content over to the new site and demolish the old. You can still retain it, but the option is there should traffic or other factors change to instantly demolish.

I have decided to go with creating the new one and build it alongside the current one.
Thanks for you input.

Here's another option Kev:

Just like Facebook, in Google+, there's an account for personal use, and there are accounts for business use. By following the instructions laid out by Jay (Magistudios) in the Live Video Classes Replay, you can set up a "business page" with your new niche attached to it.

I wouldn't go for a new one at a cost of closing an established one. It may not be exactly similar to your niche but you can handle that by posting niche related content that could very well be found in organic search.

Thanks for your input Mohamad, I was thinking the same. Hate to give away all those years of building.
I will create a new one and run it along side the current profile.
Cheers Kev

I think I would leave it as is since it is well established and you have a large following.

Thanks Glen, I was thinking the same thing. Perhaps create a new one and build it while still using the current one?
