google plusGoogle+ has finally started to roll out custom URLs, have you secured your URL yet? 

If you meet the eligibility requirements you can get a custom URL for both your personal Google+ account and/or your page.  

Google+ has started introducing the URLs to eligible members and you may have already received an email asking you if you would like to secure yours.

The custom URLs look something like this:

+DanielleBeauchemin being the custom part that Google suggested to me, which I decided to keep as is.

Not everyone is eligible to get a custom URL.  

For personal pages your account must be meet the following requirements:

  • Must have ten or more followers
  • Your account number be 30 days old or more. 
  • You must have a profile photo

Local Google+ pages must be a verified local business and non-local Google+ pages must be linked to a website. 

If you meet the requirements you should receive an email asking you if you would like to secure your custom url.  If you don’t receive an email you may be able to grab your URL inside your profile page.

There should be a notification at the top of your Google+ page or profile.  Alternatively, you can go to the “About” tab on your profile and click on “get link” located under your Google+ URL.  There you will be shown the URL(s) that you have been approved for.  If you have been given more than one option then you can choose the one you like best.  Just follow the simple instructions from there to secure your custom URL.  You may need to verify your mobile phone number as well. 

When choosing your custom URL make sure that it is exactly the way you want it to be as you can not change it as it becomes permanent. 

You may wish to read the instructions that Google support has provided for further instructions.  

I highly recommend that you go and grab your Google+ custom URL before someone else secures your name.
