Publicize not working?
The publicize option doesn’t seem to work. I have connected twitter, linkd in, tumblr and facebook. after it didn’t work, i disconnected and reconnected and still didn’t work?
The blog I need help with is apolloliquor.wordpress.com.
Publicize has not worked for the last two days for Google+ on my blog either, and I even double checked my settings and I tried to manually check and update the Publicize Setting from the Visual Editor; but it still did not work.
Publicize was working before, but then it magically stopped working.
I think that this is a bug and it may/might be connected to the major updates being done around WordPress.
Here are my last two posts that did not Publicize to Google+:
Here is my Google+ Profile:
I’m sorry to hear your Publicize option isn’t working.
I’ll need more details so I can try to troubleshoot this further for you. If you can walk me through how you are creating your posts, I might be able to figure out what’s going on, and report the issue if it looks like something’s broken.
Are either of you scheduling your posts that aren’t going out via Publicize, or are you publishing them immediately?
How are you creating the posts: are you writing them in the post editor or from one of the quick post (drop down) options, from the WordPress.com home page, via a mobile browser or the mobile WordPress app, or via post by email?
Do you save the posts as a draft first, or publish/schedule immediately?
If you are using a desktop/laptop to create the posts, which browser (and version) are you using?
Publicize stopped working on my posts on 3-26-2014, 3-27-2014, 3-3-28-2014, but then it started back working; but when I tried to go back to manually Publicize the first of those posts it still would not Publicize for that post, and so I gave up since at least it is working for my newer posts again.
Here are the three posts that failed to Publicize:
My posts since then have been Publicizing to Google+ normally again.
I publish my posts immediately most of the time, and all of those were set to publish immediately.
I make my posts from the Visual Editor in the WordPress.com Dashboard under Posts | Add New.
Sometimes I save as a draft if I am taking too long to post them or if the weather is bad, but I can not remember if I saved any of them as a draft or not.
I use a desktop with Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS and Windows 7 with Firefox 28.
Thanks @johnjronline. Are you just publishing to Google+, not Facebook/Twitter/etc.? Please keep an eye on this and let me know if things change. I’ve seen a few threads recently that suggest Publicize sometimes isn’t firing on scheduled posts, but I think that may be resolved.
@apolloliquor please let me know if you’re still having issues with Publicize and if so, if you can provide more details as well.
You are welcome Jackiedana,
Just Google+, I do not have any other social networking accounts, and I only have that one because Google seems to be trying to get everyone to have one. ;)
So I guess that I will have to manually post those three posts directly using Google+?
Yes, you will need to manually post these three to Google+.
Okay, thank you Jackiedana. :)
My posts from 4-1-2014 and 4-4-2014 did not publicize/post to my Google+ Profile (https://plus.google.com/u/0/104249721225967635557/posts):
This is the first time I have used scheduling posts as an option and I am having trouble with it! Also, scheduling posts is kind of messed up with the android app!
Heya johnjronline, I reported the issue to our developers for you. Looks like it’s happening to other users as well but we haven’t pinpointed a cause.
If you can hold off on pushing those posts out to Google+ temporarily, that may be helpful. I’ll let you know if I get any updates or need any other information from you. Thanks for your help!
After looking at my Google+ Profile I see that there are more posts that did not Publicize, thank you for reporting this issue/problem to the Developers, and you are welcome. :)
Have a nice day,
I’ve also had problems with Publicize—with immediate publishing not Scheduled—but only with G+—Twitter and LinkedIn are working fine…

Thanks for letting me know. I’m keeping an eye on this issue for all of you and will let you know if I learn anything more.
I’m also having this issue, and I’ve tried everything. Right now I’m manually posting to Google+, but it’s not ideal.
There were Jetpack and WP updates recently and I have done them both and attempting to use publicize – has not worked for at least 2 days. :(

We are aware of the issues with Google+, which is apparently widespread across WordPress.com users, and continue to investigate why many posts aren’t being pushed out to that platform. In the short run, you may need to post your updates manually while the developers look into this further.
wow.. i’ve lost a few hairs over this going crazy thinking I was doing something wrong setting this up the first time last night.. I tend to think the issue may be on google’s side.. I spent 4 hours last night trying to get this to work and I finally gave up.. I woke up in the morning and tried to publicize an article w/o changing anything and it magically worked.. seems to me either google takes time for the trust to propagate or they’re refreshing something from time to time that wipes the trust out.. this option broke again out of nowhere today so I lost another 2 hours troubleshooting and it’s still broken.. very frustrating but glad I found this thread which I’m going to follow..
