Tutorial: Get A Google+ Vanity URL

by Stefany on November 27, 2011

This is not so much a tutorial but a sharing of information.  Enjoy!

One of the main things I hear people complaining about with their Google+ page is that there are too many numbers.  Google+ does not allow a vanity URL as you are used to with Facebook because it makes it open to spammers finding email addresses (remember that many people have Google emails as their main Google+ email).  But, that doesn’t mean you don’t have to remember your numbers to share your page with someone.

All you need to do is head over to gPlus.to and follow the simple directions.

Google Plus Vanity URL

What you will end up with is a much shortened version to add to your business cards or to share with people you talk to.

Instead of this:  https://plus.google.com/116809853932986490640

I now have this:  gplus.to/tobethode


While not what everyone wants, this does help for now.  There is no way of knowing if Google will allow for vanity URLs in the future so this is the best option!  Let me know if you have any problems.  Also, let me know if you have any other Google+ questions to add to my tutorial list!
