    Google plus is one of the most important social network for any Internet site. With Google search plus world feature, when ever you share a content on your Google plus profile or Google plus page, you will be able to increase the visibility of your article to your Google plus followers. Until now, there was no way to auto publish blog to Google plus page automatically and it was a limitation. With Google plus buttons you can only share content to your Google+ profile, but for pages you had to do everything manually. Manually sharing content is always a good idea, as you can add your personal comment and add more engagement to socially shared stuff, but with increasing number of Social networking site, automation is our best friend.

    If you have not started your Google plus presence, I would recommend you to follow below article and get a Google plus page for your Website/Blog.

    Now, once you have created a page, follow below tutorial to auto publish your blog feed to Google plus pages. We will be using Social media tool call Hootsuite, which is a complete Social media management tool. You can read more about it on my earlier article on : Hootsuite Social media tool.

    How to Auto post to Google Plus Page

    Hootsuite offers free and pro account and this new Google plus auto posting feature is available on Free account too. If you have not yet created a Hootsuite account, go ahead and sign up for a Free account. Once, you are done signing up, next step is to start adding your social network accounts for auto posting. You can add many other accounts like Facebook pages, Twitter, LinkedIn, WordPress, Foursqaure and many more.  Click on your avatar on top left and browse to bottom to add a new Social network. Select option which says “Connect with Google plus“.

    Connect Google plus to Hootsuite How to Auto Publish Blog Post to Google Plus Page

    Once you click on connect, a pop-up will appear and you need to allow Hootsuite access to your Google plus page. Once you have granted the Hootsuite access, it will show all your Google+ pages and you can add them one by one to your Hootsuite dashboard. Free account have limitations of number of Social network you can connect to and if you wish to use multiple pages and feeds, I recommend you to grab hootsuite pro account, which is reasonably priced.

    Once you have added the page, go to settings > RSS feed and add a new feed. Here we need to add few details and most important is Your RSS Feed and Social network site, where you wish to share.

    Here is a video guide on setting up Google plus RSS feed Auto Publishing :

    Google plus auto posting is one of those feature, which I have missed from long time and manually publishing was not very convenient earlier. Free Hootsuite account is limited to only 2 rss feed, so I recommend you to grab a $9.95/month pro account and increase your social networking and RSS item limit. It’s a price worth paying for.

    Create Free Hootsuite Account

    Do let me know, if you have any question setting up Auto publishing to Google plus page via Hootsuite and I will take care of your queries ASAP. If you are looking to auto post on Facebook pages, Hootsuite is a great choice or you can use free RSS Graffiti for the same.

    I am hoping you can shed some light on my issue. I’ve have my posts going to G+ thru Hootsuite but none of the images from my posts are showing in G+. Have you a clue why?

    Thanks!

    Auto publishing feature is good time saver and improve blogger productivity however on the flip side it pays to be aware of the shortcoming, the so called dark side of social media automation updates. Do check my post in regards to privacy concerns. Particularly at times, people do not realize that authorizing other sites to have access to your blog feed or status updates on other social media platform post some risks.

    Thank you for this. We’d been using Hootsuite for posting to twitter but hadn’t realised we could use it to automatically post to Google+

    Hootsuite will only publish to your Google+ business page not to your personal Google+ page. When you have a business G+ page it takes priority.

    I have the same question as Susan –
    I am not able to schedule/post photos with accompanying text to my g+ business page.
    I get this message when I click “Attach image or file”:
    “Please select an Owly profile before uploading”

    Do you know if this sort of function/scheduling to a g+ page simply not available?

    I’ve created a free plugin for WordPress that works around Google+’s read-only API, allowing users to automatically post to Google+ when publishing WordPress blog posts. It can be downloaded from WordPress.org:

    I just thought that Google+ was only in the premium of Hootsuite. Never knew it was for the free account as well as RSS feeds. Great post and thanks for this valuable information!

    Previously I used Blogspot but from 1st January I switched to Wordpress and in blogspot there was an inbuilt option to publish a blog post on the Google Plus page. But as I am now Wordpress this guide for me is really awesome. Thanks!

    I haven’t had much success with autoposting and now I have a crazy combination of using twitter feed for twitter and Rss Grafitti for facebook. I manually post to Google + and with a number of blogs, it’s time consuming. I signed up for a free Hootsuite account, set it up properly and all I added to my profile is 2 Google + accounts. I then created 2 posts on each blog that fed to my RSS feed aboiout 4 hours and nothing has shown up. Thank God I did not go with a pro plan or set up all of my accounts because I would have been royally pissed.

    The integration does not seem to work with Google+. Let me know if you know of any quality reliable solutions for posting to Google + free or paid.

    Just to follow up, it posted but it took a WAY long time. Hopefully it maybe because my account is new. Let’s hope so. Thanks for the set-up instructions/
