Yesterday Google announced lots of goodies to its social network including Custom URL. Custom URLs are are easy to remember short Web addresses that link directly to your Google+ page. They can replace a cumbersome URL with a long string of numbers, such as https://plus.google.com/115229808208707341778, with a shorter URL, such as https://plus.google.com/+youtube/.
To snag a custom URL you must meet three conditions:
- You must have a profile photo.
- You must have at least 10 followers.
- Your account must be at least 30 days old.
So You no longer need to be a famous person to snag a custom URL on Google+. Brands and businesses still need to be verified or Google+ profile linked to their website to enjoy the perk. In case you are still waiting in line, Gundotra said not to worry. The option is expanding this week and will pop up as soon as your custom URL is ready.
