I’ve become a pretty dedicated Google Plus user, despite all the naysayers that are still out there. I really like the content I find and the connections I am making with people I wouldn’t normally find in my normal blogging travels.
As Google Plus grows, you’ll want to be able to promote certain of your posts there – whether it be on your blog, in your other social media channels, or maybe via email.
It’s easy to link to your profile page, but it’s not so easy to figure out how to link to one of your individual Google Plus posts or shares.
That’s the quick tip I’ll share with you today.
How To Link To Individual Google Plus Posts
Go To Your Profile
Access your posts from your profile. Your profile can now be found in the left vertical sidebar. Click on “profile.”
Find The Post You Want To Link To
Locate the post you want to link to. Mouse over the upper right hand corner of the post box. Yu’ll see a little downward-facing arrow or carrot appear. Click it.
Select Link To Post From Dropdown
A dropdown menu will appear when you click on the carrot. Select “link to post.” (there are lots of other things you can do from here too, like edit the post, delete it or disable reshares).
Copy Your Link!
Google Plus will generate a new popup box that has your share link for that individual post. Copy and go!
