Does anyone here know how to change the Google+ URL? … I know it’s not Facebook related but I haven’t found the answer anywhere else.
I read from some news blog that Google now has the option of customizing your G+ profile URL and I still haven’t figured out how to do this.
Thanks in advance!
I would like to know this too
@devanianjali @tracy-peterson-champagne It’s not available to us peons yet Only the verified / corporate accounts have access for now.
From Mashable: “At first, we’re introducing custom URLs to a limited number of verified profiles and pages. But over time, we plan to offer custom URLs to many more brands and individuals,” he writes in the post.
You can’t, yet. It has been rolled out to a few but not us mere mortals
Oh, scratch that I just had a look at my page and was offered a custom url google.com/+fog :D lol
@Kristy C. Cartier Thanks! @IanPace Apparently you are not a mere mortal anymore
ahh.. thanks @kc_kreative , @pacey
@tracy-peterson-champagne @devanianjali @pacey From Mashable just now: Google+ Widens Rollout of Custom URLsThe Google+ team began notifying users Thursday morning of the option to claim a pre-approved custom URL or apply for a different one.
You’ll be notified when you can claim your custom URL. Log into Google+ and check your profile. There will be a grey bar across the top of the screen. If it’s not there, they just haven’t gotten to you yet.
Moving this over to Small Business so those there can benefit
They have not gotten to me yet
Google is saying that your page or profile must be verified to qualify for the custom URL
@amyhallbiz how do you do that?
@prestonodenbrett You hove to be in 1000 circles. I’m no where near that.
I am in like 3000 circles- oh you mean for your business page? Kind of hard, when you can’t promote it to public or a lot of your circles.. not sure why they are not allowing us to do that?
By the way what is EA ticker- will invest in you
Here’s the link to verify your page - http://support.google.com/plus/bin/request.py?hl=en&contact_type=page_verification&rd=1
I’ve heard that you should add your personal profile to your business page about section in order for consideration to get verified on your personal account. I’m not totally sure it’s accurate but worth a shot.
@iamconsulting Thanks will review..I appreciate it
@iamconsulting A meaningful number of people - what does that mean.. I am not goingo to qualify yet… plus some of the other things I am going to need to do when I launch my mobile and regular websites.
@prestonodenbrettGoogle is known for its vagueness. In really not sure what “meaningful number of people” means, however, if you work on getting some real people adding your page to circles it won’t take a whole lot of time. By real, I mean real profiles. Send me the link and I’ll add ya. I’m pretty active in G+.
Okay- that would be great… here is the long URL version.https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/101846737582656712638/101846737582656712638/posts @iamconsulting
@prestonodenbrettYou’re from MN! So cool, I grew up there. Hoping to go back soon to visit!
@iamconsulting it is a great place..with 10,000 lakes, how can you not like that
@pacey Woo hoo for you! I’m still mortal, but hoping for transformation soon, lol.
Meanwhile… just another confusing, frustrating waiting-it-out day in Googleville.
