Google+ Rolls Out A New Page Manager Dashboard

google+ logoAs Google Plus Daily first reported, Google+ has launched a new Page manager dashboard with a new look, added functionality and some very basic stats about the Pages you manage.

The old dashboard was spartan and borderline useless. It only displayed the different Pages you managed with a blue “Switch to this page” button for each — the same button you’d see if you skipped the dashboard and went directly to the Page itself

The new dashboard still shows all your Pages and links to “Switch to this page,” but also includes:

  • basic stats like how many followers each page has and when the last post was made
  • the red notifications icon for quick access to Page activity
  • a link to manage the Page Managers
  • links to the Page settings and profile

Here’s a screenshot of my Pages dashboard:


As Google continues to work on merging its old Google Places dashboard for local businesses with the newer Google+ system, this could be — as Mike Blumenthal notes — a predecessor of what’s to come not only for social media marketers, but also for local marketers using Google+.

    Cool. A similar summary for Communities would be nice as well.

  • Chris Goward

    Next, I hope they add scheduled posts like FB has.

    Google should add complete Stats, for every Brand Page! If Google had implemented Google Analytics – or just a version of it – on G+ Brand Pages, Marketers, could really use their G+ Page in a way profitable and useful for their company’s online presence and create a unique strategy for it!
    Who cares how many have followed the page? The question is where they come from, how active they are, how old are they and which are their interests!
    Unfortunately, G+ is moving really slow!

    Google knows local businesses is the key to online marketing in future and they will go for it.

    So we still don’t get the Page’s notification in our regular notification bar without constantly and actively checking for possible notification.
    We still don’t get a proper page integration in Android without a length logout+connect+login+select page+load everything process just to check for notifications.
    We still don’t get an API to write a better client and integrate G+ into existing multi-protocol Twitter clients ourself.

    I like the new features, but hate the fact I can’t quickly get to pages anymore. Somewhere I want to see All my pages I admin on the same page without having to click “more” or scroll forever. AND I want it to open in a new tab.

  • Roger Abert

    where to all pages. b/c more pages are not loading ?
