Creating A Custom Or Vanity URL For Google Plus


Creating A Custom Or Vanity URL For Google Plus
Google Plus does not provide you with a Custom Or Vanity URL for your own profile page or brand page.

Presently Google Plus is using long ID in the URL and there is no such link as http://plus.google.com/YourUserName and so it’s hard to remember or to tell your friends about your G+ link.

The reason Google+ doesn't use vanity URLs is because it may lead to spammers figuring out the email addresses of millions of Google+ users.

To direct people to your profile page, you will need to e-mail them or prepare a hyperlink or an icon on your website and when they click on it and link to your Google Plus profile page. Such a long process.

Well, we are here with a tip to make it easy with the help of GPlus.
GPlus is a simple web app that will let you choose your own username and give you a short, custom link gplus.to/YourUserName for your Google Plus profile page. Here’s how.


Customize Google Plus URL With GPlus

Go to your Google Plus profile page and copy your ID from the URL.
Note that copy only your ID as highlighted in the screenshot below.

Once you copied, now go to the GPlus homepage, enter your desired username and paste your Google Plus ID, then click ‘Add‘.

After you click add, GPlus will provide a personalized URL to your Google Plus profile page, as highlighted in Green color in below screenshot and this link is now yours.

Conclusion

GPlus is not associated with Google Plus, therefore the link provided is just a redirect link and not exactly your Google Plus vanity URL. But now when people ask you how to get to your Google Plus profile page, you can just tell them to go to gplus.to/YourUserName.

Here is my Claimed G+ Id : gplus.to/xplor

I'm impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a
blog that's equally educative and entertaining, and let me tell you,
you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is something
that too few people are speaking intelligently about. Now
i'm very happy I found this in my hunt for something concerning this.
