How to transfer/migrate Google+ to new owner

Each Google+ page has one owner; generally the first person to set the Page up.

Note – there are 3 admin levels for Google+ pages:

  1. Owner’s – only 1 allowed per Page
  2. Managers
  3. Communications managers
    (you can have up to 50 managers and comms managers)

Quite often when circumstances change you need to transfer ownership of Google+ page and Google Business Listing.

BUT bear in mind the following:

  1. Only the current owner can transfer ownership.
  2. The person you transfer ownership to must be a manager of the page for at least one day.
  3. If your page has no managers then please first invite the “New Owner” to become a manager
  4. Once they have accepted the invitation then you are good to go

To change Page Ownership – the process:

  1. Log in to Google My Business
  2. Select PAGES from the left top drop down under “Home”
  3. Choose which Google+ Page you would like to transfer
  4. Select PAGES from the left drop down under “Home”
  5. Select SETTINGS from left top drop down under “My business”
  6. Select Managers tab in the top navigation menu
  7. Identify which manager you wish to transfer ownership to and click the drop-down arrow on the person’s card
    (If the “New Owner” does not exist then first make them a Manager (see the slide gallery below how to do that)
  8. Select Transfer ownership
  9. Continue through the warnings
  10. Voila – the new manager has been appointed!
  11. You’ll only see the arrow if you’re the owner of the page.


  1. The transfer of ownership happens immediately – no confirmation is necessary from the new owner.
  2. On the transfer of ownership the old owner automatically becomes a manager of the PAGE, depending on the circumstances you may need to remove them.
  3. No other Google services linked to the page will be affected.
