I have one SO login that is linked to a Google Apps Account. The thing is... I have a second Google Apps account and I would like to add it to My Logins but nothing I have tried has worked.

I've tried editing the email address on my login profile. It now shows the second Google App email address but when I click on the Google logo to login I still have to log in to Google with the first account for the fullOfGAS username to appear when I log in to SO.

I don't think you are doing it the right way. You should be doing the following way.

  1. Navigate to your profile page. You can do this by clicking on your username.

    User Profile

  2. Click on the my logins tab. It should be right under the Ask Question button.

    My Logins Tab

  3. Click on add more logins.... Click on it.

    Add More Logins Modal

  4. Add the desired Google Account. Before continuing on to step five, you need to add the account you want to log in with via the settings dashboard.

    Add Another Google Account

  5. Click on the big log in with Google button. Seriously, click on it.

    Log In With Google

  6. Select the account you want to sign in with. If you want to sign in with a different account, click the Sign in to another account link.

    Sign In To Another Account

  7. Click the Add Login button. Do that and you should be good to go.

    Confirm Add Login

And there you go, that is the proper way to do it.

This simply does not work for me. And I only have a single Google account. I log in using Yahoo and try to add a Google login and it seems to silently succeed but then "my logins" never shows it. –  Jesse Slicer Sep 26 at 5:56

If this doesn't work, contact support using the "contact us" link at the bottom of every page, @JesseSlicer. Chances are, there's something odd about your account that we'll need to fix. –  Shogging through the snow Nov 11 at 17:59
    
Actually, I just got an email from support yesterday which fixed the problem. It was precisely as you state. There was a duplicate account that didn't trigger an auto-merge or notification and therefore was a bit of an orphan. All good! –  Jesse Slicer Nov 11 at 18:27
