I have published a new post here at WA recently. I would like to share it on G+ but I can't. Don't know why. I have added the link to my G+ account to my WA profile. In my G+ settings I am a contributor to wealthyaffiliate.com. What am I doing wrong? Has it something to do with the link to my WA blog being recognized as an affiliate link? Any help would be appreciated.

I always use the Pretty link plugin to make a website link from my WA posts

Oh, now I get it. I think that is what WarrenK1 meant when he advised me to use the sociable plugin. Thanks a lot!

I've got this strange feeling that I mixed some English terms here and there is some misunderstanding going on.
When I wrote 'a new post here at WA' I meant a new WA blog. Just for clarity's sake - here it is: (https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/zibul/blog/how-to-write-in-english-when-you-are-not-english). That is what I would like to share on G+.
Sociable plugin - I can install it on a webiste I own, right (or am I missing something)? How can it help me to share my WA blog on G+?
I've got custom URL for my G+ profile. I have added it here - at my WA profile.
In my G+ settings I am a contributor to wealthyaffiliate.com.
I share posts from my websites on G+ without any problems.
I found some training about Google autorship but it seems to be a bit outdated.

Let me re-formulate my question:
Is it possible to share a blog from WA (any blog, written by any member of WA) on Google +? I assume it is possible, but I am not able to do it. Why?

@MKearns, @Takatomo, @WarrenK1 - thank you very much for your help.

All you have to do is copy the url of the WA blog post you want to share, then create a G+ post and paste the url.

Done.

I'd include a little intro with it and something to spark interest to get your google + audience to click it, but that's it. It's no different than sharing anything else to G+. Just copy and paste the link :)

That is exactly what I had done. At least four times.
The problem is it does not work like this. The weird thing is that It says "post shared" but nothing happens. I can't see it neither on my profile, nor from other G+ accounts. That is why I asked this question and I started doing "strange" things like authorship, etc.. NOthing seems to work, though

Man, I've never had any issue like that and I've posted many times to G+. I can always see them on my profile. But maybe using pretty link will help.

HI, Zibul. I had all kinds of problems with Google + in the beginning. When I tried to directly copy and paste my post URL to a new google post - nothing!

What I do now is to go go my post outside of WA and click on the G+ link at the bottom of the post and it pops right up on my google+ so I can then write some commentary about it. Works every time. I've gotten comments from them, so I know they are all out there.

As an added extra bonus - although my posts are not on page one yet , when I enter the key words I used or the title of the post into google, the Google+ article comes up on page one with the headline and link.

I hope this helps and I wish you all the best.

Thanks for the advice Warren. So, you logout of WA and then search for your post in Google, right?
I have to try it. I'll let you know about the results.

Still can't do it. I definitely am doing something wrong. I can't see any G+ link at the bottom of my post. Any suggestions?

Sorry, I forgot to mention that - in the training, there is a plug-in called "sociable" that lets you put any social media icons that you are involved with at the bottom of your post. Before you do this, type "sociable" in the question bar at the top and you'll get instructions or the link to where in the training this is. Or you can just go to your Add-PLugins and search for it.

Good luck.

Warren
