How to Get Your Own Google+ URL..


If you have signed up on Google+, you might have noticed the long numbers like , in your profile. As of yet, unlike Facebook, Twitter, Digg, etc. where you can choose URL of your choice, Google+ does not provide any option to change these URL. iHACK has just posted an alternate solution to this thing. This way, to some extent provides you with a convenient option, while giving your Google+ URL to anyone. Off course you can remember the while link, which contains a dozens of number, but you can remember links as that of Facebook, etc. So, in order to get your own Google+ URL, go to, you will see a screen like the one shown below.

Copy your Google+ ID, which is a large number and paste it in the textbox on the right. Now choose your Nick Name. Once you have chosen your nick name, click add. Now in order to check your URL, if it is working or not, go to Like I have chosen This URL will direct to my profile.
If you want to get your own, don’t waste any further time.

  1. They should just let you have a separate username that’s changeable at any time like Twitter (that is, ofc, completely different than your Gmail handle with a warning of spammers if you set it the same).

    Thumps up if u Like facebook & Like it..& thumps down i u hate G+

  7. Just changed mine. I think Google may consider vanity URL if they want a user’s experience to mimic like Facebook’s but I think they should not as the point above “lead to spammers figuring out the email addresses” is very true.
