How to Request a Google+ (Plus) Invitation

imageYesterday Google publicly announced their new social network, Google Plus, and it is already in testing for a select few.  As is usual with Google, the product is in “beta” status and invites are limited.  If you want to get in on the testing and gain some bragging rights with your friends, you’ll need one of those coveted invites.  Although requesting an invite isn’t exactly rocket science, people have been encountering errors when using the sign-up tool.  If you follow our guide below, you shouldn’t have any problems.

Update from MrGroove Closing Comments – Google updated the invite system. If you need an invite, read this new groovypost

7/12/2011 Update Invites have been up and running for the past few days so if your looking for an update, just drop a comment in below and include your GMAIL address. If you get an invite from me, please continue to scan the comments section and help me invite other people as I don’t know if I’ll eventually run out of invites.?.?.? Thanks everyone.

7/7/2011 Update Invites are closed again and per my update this morning: http://gpo.st/1a1 if you didn’t use your invite from me last night, it’s probably not going to let you in today.  Sorry…

Google opened up invites again this evening and I went ahead and invited everyone who left a comment below.  Probably over 15 invites went out.  Your welcome!  😉

Step 1 – Sign into your Google Account

Use your favorite web browser (Chrome seems least likely to cause errors) to visit http://www.google.com and login to your Google account using the new Sign in button at the top-right google bar (as I’m starting to call it).

Sign in to your Google Account

 

Step 2

Visit the following page https://services.google.com/fb/forms/googleplus/ which is where we will actually request the invite.  Put in your first name and email, and then Click Keep Me Posted.

Tip: Be careful not to also enter your last name on accident, it may cause the system to reject your request.

Sign up for a Google Plus account

Done!

If everything went through you’ll see a page displayed like the one below saying “Thank you. To get more information…” etc.  Now all you have to do is wait for Google to send you an invite.  It won’t be as quick as receiving a personal invite from a Google Employee, but it’s your best shot unless you have the internal connection.

Should you an encounter an error, clear your browser cache and then repeat the above steps.

    Invites temporarily suspended, as posted by Googler Vic Gundotra.

    “We’ve shut down invite mechanism for the night. Insane demand. We need to do this carefully, and in a controlled way. Thank you all for your interest!

    For any who wish to leave, please remember you can always exit and take your data with you by using Google Takeout.

    It’s your data, your relationships, your identity.

    It sound like a awful lot to do for a free invite. Wouldn’t like me to do your laundry too.

    Why not giving them for free without something to do in return, I will give you an email to spam if you want.

    • Ahmed July 12, 2011 at 11:27 am #

      We are inviting guys here for free, and sure we ask them for nothing in return 🙂

    If you already have a gmail account its much easier, you don’t even need an invite, i managed to get on to google + from twitter, i clicked a link on one of the pages i was following and ended up on their google + profile, as i was already logged in i automatically was given a profile? I simply clicked on the right hand corner where my email address is displayed, then clicked profile from the drop down menu and from there i have been starting to edit my profile.
    the link i used is below…
