Link to your website


A tickverified checkmark displays after a website URL on a Google+ page when a bi-directional link between the page and the website exists. This means that the primary link of the page is set to the URL of the website(www.pagewebsite.com) and this website contains a link (</p> <link href="”https://plus.google.com/{+PageId}”" rel="”publisher”" />)back to the page URL in the <head> of the site’s HTML.
Linking your Google+ page and your website is useful because:
  • It helps you connect with your friends, fans and customers.
  • It provides Google with information that we can use to help determine the relevancy of your site to a user query on Google Search.
  • Your site will become eligible for Google+ Direct Connect.
To link your Google+ page to your website:

  1. Make sure that you're using Google+ as your page.
  2. Click profile icon Profile on the left-hand side.
  3. Click the Edit profile button next to your name.
  4. On the ‘About’ tab, click the Link website button next to your website's URL.
  5. Follow the steps in the box that appears:
    1. Copy and paste the code snippet provided to the <head> of your website and click the Test website button.
    2. We'll check to make sure you've added the snippet to your website correctly.
    3. Click Done when the check is complete.
    4. Within 1-2 days, a tickverified checkmark will display next to your website on the 'About' tab of your page's profile.
After you've linked your Google+ page to your website, make sure to also link your website to your page. Learn how to add the Google+ badge to your website.
