I just setup my first Page on Google Plus and immediately searched my profile for the option to set a custom URL (vanity URL) for my Google Plus Page. It took about 10 minutes to realize that there’s no such option.
A quick Google search led me to a service called GPlus.to which allows you create a short URL which redirects to your Google Plus page. I should note this is not a Google product or service. However, since my goal was really just to have a shorter URL which I can remember and is easy to type in, the service met my needs.
I’m surprised that Google doesn’t offer this key feature yet. It’s possible that some users do have this feature enabled on their account, but I did not. Have you changed your Google Plus page URL yet? If not, why?
