Google+ Vanity URLs

Make short (vanity) URL for Google+ profile


Google Plus – Vanity URL

A vanity URL is creatively linked to something making it easier to remember. Social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace offer vanity URLs to their users where their username is in the URL.

For example, vanity URL for:

Our blog’s fan page on Facebook is:

My Facebook profile is:

My Twitter profile is:

My Google profile was: profiles

Unlike other social networking sites or even old Google profile, Google+ doesn’t offer vanity URLs for user profiles, making it difficult to remind and share with others.

For example:
My Google+ profile is:

In old Google Profile, by default profile username was your Gmail ID e.g. gmail Id/.
Perhaps, for security reasons Google+ doesn’t use vanity URLs so that spammers could not figure out email address of millions of Google+ users.

It would be nice to have a vanity URL for your Google+ profile as well like other social networking sites.

It didn’t take long for a couple of profile address shortening service for the beta version of the Google+ which help in creating a vanity URL free of charge.

They work by taking the long number (Google+ ID), connecting that to the nickname or username you choose, and redirecting the newly created vanity URL to your Google+ profile.
