But what if you want to share web-pages to Google+ Pages that you own for your business, blog, or interest/hobby?  Manually copying and pasting the URL to share on your G+ Page can be a time-consuming task. For blog owners or employees doing social marketing for the company, this can take up a big chunk of your time if you have to maintain several Google+ Pages.

On  this post, we will cover how to

How to share web-pages to Google+ Pages

The rise of Google+ seems to be limited by the number of extensions/add-ons being developed for it. Probably because G+ is making changes so fast that plugin developers are having a hard time catching up with it. If you noticed, about 1/2 of the available plugins are broken or with bugs because of Google+ constant updates. To my surprise, even a simple social media task such as sharing to a company/website Google+ Page is a chore.

Faced with this problem, I went hunting for a web tools that can do the job, and found Share on Google Plus Page (Chrome extension). Too bad there is only one. I hope to find more to review later on.

There are none for Firefox at the moment. If you find any, please tell me.

Using Share on Google Plus Page, you can update both your personal Google+ profile and your business/brand/product page.

This Chrome extension allows you enter up to 5 Google+ Pages that you owned. After installing, click on ‘Define my Google+ pages’ button to input your Google Plus Page Names & IDs. You only need to do this once. The ID is the string of digits at your Google+ Page URL.

    Thanks Lincoln – I’ve been looking all over for something like this!

    Hi, I’m a little confused. When I click to share I just get my g+ page but the content on the website I’m trying to share doesn’t appear on my page. Am I missing a step? Thanks.

    Lincoln,
    Thanks for the tip. Put in the various pages, checked each one and the ID works. However when I click on the g+share button in this article, it brings me to my personal profile to share, and doesn’t not allow me to choose my Page. When I click on the Chrome extension it allows me to choose my page, but I’m back to having to cut/paste URL. What have I missed?
