I wished that one day, Hootsuite will integrate personal Google+ profiles into its social media automation platform.
The above was three years back when I first started using Hootsuite. If you are one of those social media marketers like me who loves Hootsuite and waiting for integration with personal Google+ profile, the wait is over.
If you missed it, Hootsuite supports personal Google+ profile!
I first read about Hootsuite adding support to personal Google+ profile on The Social Media Hat.
I was shocked.
I was surprised.
I was 101% pumped!
After a long time waiting for Google+ integration, it certainly felt like it’s a dream come true!
If you are wondering, Hootsuite has long been my go-to tool when it comes to social media automation tools. Sure, I use Buffer, Socialoomph, and a few more social media tools, but Hootsuite is one of the best for automation.
With the latest update on Hootsuite, I believe that it will be a game changer which will affect how social media marketing on Google+ will work.
Furthermore, we (social media marketers) have long been complaining about lacking social media tools for Google+.
So, now it is the time for us to start taking Google+ marketing to a whole new level, don’t you think so?
Why is Hootsuite integration with personal Google+ profile important?
There are two important things you can accomplish with this integration:
- You can now publish posts to a new social media platform using Hootsuite
- You can schedule posts to personal Google+ profile
1. Publishing new social media posts (on personal Google+ profile) using Hootsuite
This is pretty clear cut. With the new integration, you can now add your personal Google+ profile to your Hootsuite.

Don’t forget that being active on Google+ will also increase your search ranking.
Apart from search ranking, being active on Google+ is proven to boost website traffic (read my case study by clicking on the bonus above).
2. Automatic scheduling posts to personal Google+ profile
Guys, this is the most important part. I use Hootsuite to publish posts at optimal times using automatic scheduling.
Until date, the only Google+ posting automation tool requires you to keep your computer or laptop turned on. In a long run, you know that it is not a good social media strategy. Obviously.
Now, what happens when you can schedule posts using Hootsuite for your personal Google+ profile?
You can leverage the automatic posting to ensure that posts are shared at the optimal timing. This is going to increase:
Pretty awesome, right?
How to start automatic posting to personal Google+ profile?
Firstly, you need to register for a Hootsuite account. Then, add your Google+ account as seen below:
Once the account is integrated to your Hootsuite account, all you need is to start scheduling the social media posts and Hootsuite is going to take care of the rest.
