HootSuite Google+ Pages

Now You Can Manage Google+ Pages from @HootSuite dashboard

Good news for all HootSuite users, and probably Google+ users as well, now you can manage your Google+ Pages from HootSuite dashboard.

Since Google launched  their pilot program to allow via third-party apps to access and manage Google+ pages, this wasn’t an option for all HootSuite users before today, it was only for the HootSuite enterprise edition.

Now the dream came true for all HootSuite users can manage their Google+ Pages with ease!

Manage Google+ Pages from HootSuite dashboard

Google has launched a pilot program that will let owners of Google+ Pages manage their accounts via third-party apps such as HootSuite, Involver and Buddy Media.

Whether you’re on a Free, a Pro or an Enterprise plan, you’ll be able to efficiently manage Google+ Pages alongside other social channels, providing brands a better way to capitalize on the social power of this rapidly expanding social network.

To add Google+ Pages: Access your Profile from the side menu, then select + Add a Social Networkunder My Social Networks.

    Thinking of buying HootSuite, do you have any coupon code for it? Or any discount I can get ?

    • Hesham Zebida September 26, 2012, 6:39 pm

      HootSuite do not have discounts , however you can signup to the trail, try it for Free for one month.

    This is a good news for me because I have waited long for this opportunity. Google took long time to release the API key for the G+ which makes it uneasy for developers to create automation system for the service. Now, Hootsuite has done that.

    Thanks for this great news.

    Fantastic, hopefully this means TweetDeck and other API’s are close. I highly doubt TweetDeck but we can dream right?

    Hi Hesham,

    This is truly great news – Since I am an avid user of Hootsuite and the brilliant functions they’ve provided me since using their services. If you are an avid Google+ user and like the Hootsuite dashboard and interface I can guarantee you that you’ll be spending a lot more time on Google+ by visiting your Hootsuite account. This is brilliant for having social content / streams easily visible and all under one dashboard and neatly organized tabs. Brilliant time saver!

      Hi Anton,

      I agree with you because I am one of those people who open 100s of tabs on more than one browser at the same time to follow up with social, my laptop is suffering :) I hate jumping from here to there.. I always welcome a cool integration!

    Hesham, I never wanted to pay for a service like Hootsuite before when I could get almost the same from so many free services, but I like the idea of them adding Google +. May have to pay.

    • Hesham Zebida July 20, 2012, 2:02 pm

      Sara, you don’t have to pay for using Hootsuite , they still have a Free account! However, when we pay we get more!

      • Sara July 20, 2012, 3:50 pm

        Like the old saying, “You get what you pay for.”
        Thanks Hesham

    I do social management for websites and I know how notorious it is to manage a Google+ page. For other pages, we used Hootsuite since long. Must say I was dying to get the same for G+, I could’ve given my life for it!!
    Now I can manage it all on Hootsuite itself!! I feel like a superhero already :D :D

    that’s very cool google+ with hootsuite. can’t wait to connect to my google+ account with hootsuite

  • John Ernest July 19, 2012, 9:38 am

    Thank you for sharing this new innovation. Google really is evolving everyday. Pretty soon we will be surprised that even the counters on supermarkets are Google-powered. This would surely be worth it to try if it promises convenience!

    Wow, thanks for the heads up buddy. This is really good news and I am off to “add” G+ on my Hootsuite dashboard ASAP. I love HS and I don’t use any other app. With this addition, all the more reason to stay with them. Nice :)

    This is too awesome. I have been annoyed at how inefficient it was to try to manage my google+ profile and was instead focusing on twitter. Since I already use hootsuite I just connected my google+ account. Hopefully this works out to be something that seamlessly fits into my routine.
