If you want to reach a broader audience with your niche website, creating a Google+ business page can help you do that.

Having a separate page within Google+ allows you to separate your personal profile from your business interests. It's much like setting up a separate page in Facebook. It's just on the Google+ platform. For people who have more than one site, having a Google+ business page allows you to target a specific audience that is interested in your niche.

It takes only a few minutes to set up a page. Let's get started.

Hello Alanna
Thank you for putting together Google + training. It's really helpful. I have added my google + page to WA profile, but it does not show on my profile page. Do you know why this might be?

This is because it is you looking at it. This keeps someone from creating false traffic.

Hello Maggie2016. I just checked your page and you are right. It's not there. Your Google+ ID can be added to your WA profile page in your profile settings. Your ID should look something like this: https://plus.google.com/[numbers or your name here]

Do you see where to add it in your profile settings? Copy/paste the URL into your profile. Be careful to remove anything after the string of numbers or your name. You may see /posts after the numbers. Don't copy/paste those. Be sure to save your changes. Let me know if this works for you. Alanna

I'm a bit slow. I can't find "Create New Page". All I get is "Add Locations"

Hi Boucherda. Did you already make a page at some point before? If you want to create a new page, go to the gear icon on the right side of your page. Click that and you should get a drop-down that gives you an option to create a new page. Let me know if you still need help.

Actually I don't see a 9-square box or a gear icon.

Excellent!!

I have done this and highly agree with doing so.

Also, I have noticed that Google is now tracking physical addresses attached to websites. So, if you're setting up your website as a business for taxes and such OR going for some local SEO, be sure to put a physical address on your contact page. Then, get listed with Google to claim your website with Google Maps. This will help local SEO tremendously.

Thank you, PjGermain! It's my first tutorial and I have been interested in this for quite a while. I'm only now getting around to doing it but I had a lot of fun researching and creating this!
