Solved "How To Link to your Google+ Page"

Post by Guest on June 12th 2014, 8:12 pm

Note: After asking this question a couple of days ago.. I find myself diving deeper into the forums markup.. which can be very confusing and even overwhelming. My main topic was locked by one of the admins seeing how I thought I had it solved based on user suggestions.. and I'm not sure how I ended up finding what I did. So to all those wanting to know

"How to link your Google+ page" This write is for you.

Although I'm unable to add images, I'll do my best attempting to explain how one can add their Google+ page to their forum. merely as a reference to your Google+ page indicating there is verification that in fact you have a website. which is nothing more than having a check/shield added to your Google+ plus page beside your posted URL address.

Once you either created a Google plus account.. you can then link your plus page to your forum page.. This located on your Google+ "About" page, Links. Clicking "edit" will grant you access to enter an offside link which will be added to your Google+ page right under your account name for all visitors to see. In the Google+ website slot, Add your forum's URL. IE: (http://mywebsite.forumotion.com) etc. After which.. A pop up will appear with a generated HTML code.

Important: Leave this window open as you copy only theGoogle+ page URL or the (https://plus.google.com/numbers) anddisregard the coded data before & after the URL. Once you have connected the twoaccounts, You can return and close this window.

Copy your URL and return to your forum page.. and here is where I had an issue.. I couldn't find where to place this, until now.. Another user informed me to just open a notice or announcement and place the code within the announcement.. which I did and can work.. But the official way is as follows.

Within your forums Admin panel, Locate the Modules tab, Click and scan down the pages left hand side for a list of options. Under the "Social Networks", You will see "Google+" Click and open, You then should see: Link Your Google+ Page and all relative information..

Extract your copied Google+ URL as mentioned above and paste into the slot just below all relative information.. Make sure the "Link your forum to your Google+ page" is check "Yes" then submit. This will add your Google+ generated code into the HTML markup and remain in an undisclosed area of your forum without attracting attention.

Once placed within your forums markup, a Google bot or representative will scan your forum page for the code, but only for verification purposes.

I thought you were referring to the code that you are giving in the other topic. If you are just adding the link, you do what I posted here.
