What is a Custom Google+ URL and Why You Need One
You have probably heard about Google+. Hopefully you even have a G+ page set up for your practice? Brilliant. Now it’s time to make your URL yours.
Look at the examples below and think about which one looks better.
Once you create a G+ page for your business, you are automatically given a URL for that page. This URL contains a long sequence of digits, not making it very user-friendly or memory-friendly for that matter!
What are the benefits of having a URL with your business name in it?
- Easier to remember
- Easier to share
- Builds more trust in people
- Easier to use
- Inspires online sharing
Please Note: Before you claim your personalised URL there are certain criteria you must meet.
- Your page must have a profile photo
- You must have at least 10 followers
- Your account must be at least 30 days old
- Your account must be linked to a website (this is important!)
If all of the above gets a tick, well done!
Once you’ve logged in to your G+ page using your Google ID, you should get a notification at the top of the page explaining that you have been preapproved for a custom URL.
