  • Jim Munro: Hi . Please go to your business page and share from there using the box at the top of your business page. These posts will appear on your business page's posts page.

    Open your business page, click on "share what's new".
  • Gangl Transfers: thank you Jim
    but this is not exactly what I mean.
    When I see a post on an other Google+ page and then click on the share button (the one with the arrwo right besides from the +counter), then the post goes to my profile but I want it on my business page.
  • Webgewandt: Dear , I think it isn't possible. Because sharing is a function provided for individuals/people, not for pages.
  • Webgewandt: Ach so, - Ihr seid Ö'schis, dann noch mal auf deutsch: Es ist eine personenbezogene Funktion, daran könnte es liegen. Ich ärgere mich auch oft, dass ich immer zuerst auf die G+-Profilseite komme, statt auf die Page, obwohl ich doch vorrangig die Seite bespielen möchte.
  • Masatake Wasa: I'm not entirely sure if the following will answer your question, but if you would like your Google+ page to be the default Google+ entity to which you share things by e.g. pressing the +1 or share button outside the Google+ landscape, then you will need to create a Google account for your Google+ page, as described at . Log out from all Google accounts, and sign into Google+ page's Google account before any other account, including the one associated with your Google+ profile.
  • Gangl Transfers: Hi Masatake,
    what you say is leading into the right direction. I have created new user and password for my business site. Then I signed out. OK. But when I want to sign in again, google only shows me my profile for log in. After that I can login to my business page and I am back to where I started.
  • Gangl Transfers:
     ;Ja wir Ösis haben zwei Probleme. Erstens fehlt uns der Schnee und dann gibt es noch diese ärgerliche Situation mit Google+.
    Ich weiß aber, dass es funktionieren muss weil eine Bekannte von mir immer nur mit ihrer Unternehmensseite postet und teilt. Leider weiß sie nicht mehr, wie sie das gemacht hat.
    Mein Profil ist vollkommen unwichtig aber leider bekomme ich dort die Followers.
  • Masatake Wasa: You probably need to create a Gmail account for the Google+ page as well (not just the username and password), so that you can log into that account first, if that makes sense.
  • Gangl Transfers: I have found the solution:
    1. Create a password for your business page - this is done under the Business Page Settings. You need to be the page owner to do this. if you can't see the option to create a password then it means you're not signed in as the page owner.

    2. During the process for creating a password, you will be asked to sign into your Google account again. This is purely a security measure. Make sure you provide the details of the page owner account.

    3. Once you've created a password, sign out of Google+ and sign back in as the business page using the provided email address and the password you just created.
  • Jim Munro: Thank you,  ;. :)
