Google has announced that it will be rolling out custom URLs to almost everyone. The testing for custom URL started back in the middle of August 2012 and a week later, it started notifying brands & individuals, which had verified accounts. The expansion of feature was stopped in between and has finally started again.

I have recently received a Custom URL mail, which allowed me to have a new URL: https://plus.google.com/u/0/+NavneetKaushal/

The earlier URL for my Google+ page was: https://plus.google.com/102924015418006810926/

You can claim a custom URL if your profile meets the following criteria:

  • The account is 30 days old
  • Has at least 10 followers
  • Has a profile photo

Brands and businesses with a verified business or a linked website can also claim a custom URL for their Google+ page. You can read more about link and verification at Google+ Help Center.

If you meet the eligibility criteria and Google creates a custom URL for you, visit your Google+ page or Google+ profile to claim the process.
