Many users are asking us how to get the CircleCount Dashboard for your Google+ Business Pages.
Since we don’t get access to the Pages API (and we never got any feedback why) we want to explain how you can get the dashboard for your Google+ Pages with a simple workaround.
By following the 9 steps described below you can verify easily on CircleCount that you are a manager of the page.
You can try it out here:
This dashboard is free for everyone.
The Dashboard PRO is more detailed and faster. Check out the demo here:
This is available for your Google+ Business Pages as well.
You can filter any of our rankings for a specific country and get country-specific rankings.
We have two different ways to identify the country:
- for persons we are using the first public visible location on your map on Google+
- for pages we are using the public visible address on your Google+ profile
We have now an additional way to identify your country which is more accurate:
You can define it by yourself on CircleCount!
You will find a list in your dashboard where you can set your country:
There is the dashboard for your personal profile and you have also a dashboard for your Google+ Pages. Here is a description about how to access the dashboard for your pages.
After you have set your country in the dashboard, you can reload the dashboard directly to see your new rankings. You will be included in the ranking list latest after one hour, since we are caching these rankings for one hour.
Once you have set your country in the dashboard, it won’t be changed by our scripts anymore. That means, that you have the full control on your settings.
Today we have an upgrade for your dashboard at CircleCount.com.
With this upgrade you get a table with all of your public posts. This table is sortable, so that you can easily find for example your most reshared and plusoned posts.
Sortable table of your posts
For each post you will find
- the first part of the text, which is directly linked to your post
- the date and the time
- the number of comments
- the number of +1’s
- the number of reshares
- the sum of +1’s and reshares
- that’s a good indicator of the “overall popularity” of a post. The number of comments has been ignored, since everyone can raise this number by oneself
You will find this new table in your personal dashboard but also in the dashboard of your Google+ Page. If you didn’t add your Google+ Page to your profile yet, you can find out how to do this here.
You can also sort the posts in the same time on multiple columns. You just need to hold the shift-key on clicking at the column headers.
Normally you would analyze the posts with the most reshares, +1’s or comments. But there are also interesting findings if you sort the other way around. For example the Google+ Page of CircleCount has no post without at least one +1 or one reshare! 😉
Analyze your posts in your Dashboard
We have asked you and you said you would like to have the dashboard at CircleCount.com also for your Google+ Pages. The result of the last days is:
You can get now a dashboard for your Google+ Pages 😉
Take a look for example on our dashboard:
The Dashboard for Google+ Pages
Here you can see that we get the fewest comments on Thursday. Let’s try to change this with the post to this announcement on a Thursday 😉
At the moment there is no way through the API of Google+ to find out if you are the admin of a page, so we are working with a short post you have to send through your page to verify that you are the admin. We hope this workflow is self-explanatory. Try it out!
