Do You Have A Google+ Profile Or Page?

So, I'm trying to decide if I should create a Google+ profile or page. Any ideas? Yeah, I know, I know. I don't have a Google+ account yet; I'm so late to the party. LOL emoticon :smile: I wonder if I'm the only one? Anyway, what do you guys (that would be all those who have a G+ account, which, I suppose, is everyone here. LOL) think? Do you have a Google+ profile or page? Which one would you recommend creating? Should you make one of them or both? I looked into this before like the differences between the 2, etc but it's still sort-of confusing. I mean, I can't decide which one I should go with. From the looks of things, it wouldn’t matter which one but how do you know which one is the best, right? Or am I actually getting something wrong here? Are you supposed to have a profile first before you can create a page? Or can you choose form the get-go which one to go with? Any ideas? For all the Google+ users out there, how is this social networking site? Is it fun? Are you enjoying yourself? Or does it feel like a chore?

Freyayuki I think you create a profile first, and then the Page. Afterwards you select which will be your primary place for posts and updates (the Profile or the Page).

Hi FreyaYuki ! Responded to your question by writing a post. It was too much info to bury as “Comments”. Also, been wanting an excuse to share an angel glitter graphic. :)

I had a Google+ account even before it went "big". I didn't really like it though. I think Facebook is better.

I created my profile first. I use my profile for many different website accounts. I have a Google Blog and a Google Plus. I use Plus to promote my business. I think the quality of posts on Plus is higher than on Facebook.

I have had G+ for quite a long time, but don't know how to use it effectively. I think now is the time to figure it all out.

I do have a G+ but not a Google Page , I guess I should look into it for the future :)

FreyaYuki wrote on March 15, 2015, 12:27 PM

Ah, I see. I've heard that Google+ can be a good source of traffic. Some people say they make use of it to share their articles and other stuff and some do say that this is effective.

FreyaYuki wrote on March 15, 2015, 12:39 PM

Ah, I see. Was the one that you set up a Google+ page or profile?

FreyaYuki wrote on March 15, 2015, 12:49 PM

Did you make a Google+ profile or Google+ page for your personal blog? Or both? I'm not sure if you're allowed to have more than 1 Google+ account. Maybe you're only supposed to have 1 and that's why you can't create a new one? Not sure though. Hopefully, others who know about this issue can chime in with some information.

FreyaYuki wrote on March 15, 2015, 12:57 PM

Ah, I see. Thanks so much for the info. Appreciate it emoticon :smile: Do you use the profile or the page to share your posts? Which one would you recommend - the profile or the page?

FreyaYuki wrote on March 15, 2015, 1:01 PM

Thanks. Will check it out now emoticon :smile:

FreyaYuki wrote on March 15, 2015, 1:16 PM

Ah, I see. So, you don't use Google+ anymore? I heard that it can be a good source of traffic though and some say that they've had some success with it.

FreyaYuki wrote on March 15, 2015, 1:26 PM

Thanks for the helpful info emoticon :smile: . So you only have a Google+ profile and no Google+ page? So all you really need is a profile then? Even if you have no page, it doesn't matter? I'm currently working on a Google Blogger blog too.

FreyaYuki wrote on March 16, 2015, 11:36 AM

Did you make a Google+ profile or page or both? Yeah, I heard that you can get good traffic from Google+ if used effectively.

FreyaYuki wrote on March 16, 2015, 11:37 AM

Ah, I see. Thanks for the info. Am also still looking into this.

CoralLevang wrote on March 16, 2015, 11:42 AM

It was attached to my Gmail account. I do not know that one is not exclusive of the other. That probably means I have a page. Not sure of the profile. I need to investigate.
