Ever since Google announced Google+, users have been craving for custom Google Plus profile URL, and now the wait has finally come to an end. Google+ users can grab a vanity URL for this profile and finally stop using third-party services like gplus.to
While a bunch of users are enjoying their Google Plus vanity URL, many users are still wondering why the option to get a vanity URL is still not available. Getting a custom URL for your Google Plus profile, Business Page, and Local Page requires some basic eligibility. Here’s what you need to in order to get ahead of the line:
Eligibility for User Profiles:
- You should at least have 10 or more followers
- Your account should be 30 days old or more
- A profile photo is a must
Eligibility for Business and Local Pages:
- Must be a verified local business
- Must be linked to a website
If you meet the above eligibility you will be intimated by Google with a notification to create your Profile URL. Google also automatically suggests you a custom URL for your page or Profile, however, you can still opt a URL of your own choice using the provided option.
If you have requested for a change, Google will review your Request for the new custom URL and allot it for you if it is available and strictly meets the site’s Terms and Policies.
If you’ve met all the above criteria and still haven’t received the option to create a vanity URL for your profile, you just have to wait as Google is rolling out the feature in batches.
