How to Get a Google+ Custom URL

google plus custom urlGoogle+ is now offering custom URLs for your account or brand page. A Google+ custom URL is short and easy to remember. For example, YouTube's Google+page is now google.com/+YouTube, rather than https://plus.google.com/115229808208707341778. If you meet the eligibility requirements, you can choose one of the custom URLs Google preassigns to your Google+ profile or page. Requirements for getting a custom URL are:

  • Ten or more followers
  • Your account is 30 days old or more
  • A profile photo
  • Eligibility for Local Google+ pages: Must be a verified business

If you meet the above criteria, you'll see a notification at the top of your Google+ profile or page. Click the 'Get a custom URL' button to get started.

If you wish to change the capitalization of your custom URL, go to the 'Links' section of your profile and a box will appear allowing you to make edits to the formatting.
