We have a Google+ page, but on our homepage we have ~280 +1s:

Is there any way to connect those likes to the business page? We have used the rel=publisher thing. Or do we have to start fresh like we have?


Yes, according to this Google blog post you can combine all your +1s from Google+, your site and search results.

You can also link your site to your Google+ page so that all your +1s -- from your Page, your website, and search results -- will get tallied together and appear as a single total.
You can link your site to your Page either using the Google+ badge or with a piece of code. To set this up, visit our Google+ badge configuration tool.

I assume that's in your settings somewhere. It may not be there right now as they say they're introducing the badge in the coming days.

  • Can anyone clarify this? I've read that post and it now links to developers.google.com/+/plugins/badge/config but it's very unclear what exactly using the button this generates does. Does this button links +1s "from your Page, your website, and search results" together, as I believe Tom Gullen was asking for? How does it now which G+ page, URL, etc. to link together? – tog22 May 24 '12 at 15:06
  • ...especially as that button just creates a link to the URL of your G+ page, so doesn't appear to do anything like what you quoted says... – tog22 May 24 '12 at 16:05
