Google are finally rolling out custom URLs (e.g. https://plus.google.com/+QuantumRosebery ) for Google Plus pages in Australia. This has been a very long time coming considering the difficulty in the old ones that were simply impossible to remember. Unfortunately the URLs they give are fixed and can not be changed (other than capitalisation). Not all profiles are eligible to use a custom URL. The requirements are:

  • 10 or more followers
  • Your account is 30 days old or more
  • A profile photo

Eligibility for Local Google+ pages: Must be a verified local business Eligibility for Non-local Google+ pages: Must be linked to a website To find out more about getting a custom URL, click here.
