How to custom your Google+ URL

Posted In Social network - By Techtiplib on Monday, December 9th, 2013 With 1 Comment

If you’re eligible, you can get a custom URL for your Google+ Profile or Page. The custom URL can’t be changed, and it will be preassigned based on things like your name or the name of your linked website. You may also need to add a few letters or numbers to make it unique to you.
