Google+

Follow

Sprout Social currently integrates with Google+ business pages. It generally takes approximately 24 hours after you connect your Google+ profile before we can begin pulling data into Sprout.

Reporting

  • Google+ does not currently have an API for reporting on pages so we are not able to provide a Google+ dedicated report at this time.
  • You can view your Google+ posts in the Sent Messages report under the Reports tab (counts number of +1s, responses, reshares)

Messages

  • We do not currently support brand keyword or smart search options for Google+, but this is something we'd like to provide eventually.
  • You cannot +1 comments on your posts from Sprout.
  • Due to API limitations, we do not provide notifications for other people’s +mentions of your company page.

Publishing to Google+

  • You can disable comments on your Google+ posts directly from Compose by deselecting "Allow Comments" in the audience targeting drop down menu.
  • We do not have the ability to tag other Google+ users or pages at this time. Any +tagging will need to be done in Google.

Connecting Google+:

  • In order to connect a Google+ page, you must be Manager of that specific page.
  • Sprout does not currently integrate with Google+ personal accounts.

 

1. If you reach this page after clicking on Proceed, you are not signed into the Google account that has Manager access to the Google+ page you wish to add. This page indicates that the email address you've used to log in to Google does not have any Google+ accounts affiliated with it. Please click the "back" button on your browser.
