Custom URLs for Google+ Accounts
It has been a long time coming, Google have finally started to roll out custom URLs for Google+ accounts that are established. By established, the criteria appear to be: 30+ days old, have 10 followers and a profile photograph. On top of this, brands and businesses may also receive a custom URL if it has a linked website or is a verified local business.
iMod Digital was notified by email yesterday as follows:
Google will have to process millions of emails so if you haven’t received yours yet it’s probably best to remain patient. Alternatively, if you’ve only just started exploring Google+ or had forgotten about your account then we recommend you take the time to match these criteria to qualify for the custom URL:
- Account is 30+ days old.
- A profile picture is loaded.
- You have 10 followers.
- Link your website to the Google+ page, or
- Get your local business verified.
A custom URL is just another way of potentially increasing your visibility within the most used search engine on the Internet.
