How to Claim a Google Plus Vanity (Custom) URL

Written by Rachel Howe
Back in October, Google announced a fantastic update to Google +: Vanity URLs. This now allows the ability for users to create custom URLs that are easier to remember (like google.com/+ZeonSolutions).
In order to claim your vanity URL, you must meet the following criteria:

  • Have a profile photo
  • At least 10 followers
  • An account > 30 days old

Businesses that have a linked website or verified local business can claim their custom URL. More information on verification can be found at the Google + Help Center.
Upon logging into your account, if you are eligible, you will notice a button that says, “get url” at the top of your page.

You can then choose the custom URL:

I love this update because I think it helps tremendously with branding and sharability of content. So what are you waiting for? Go set yours up!
