  1. Hi Ravi,

    This is really a good post… Google’s custom URL is help you to find easily. I just set the custom url for my plus account. 🙂

    Have a great weekend. 🙂

  2. Very useful post ! I was facing some problems and queries while setting the URL and suddenly, while searching I found your post. Thanks for sharing this information.

  3. Hi Ravi,

    Wonderful tutprial post 🙂

    Yes indeed, Google+ came up with this change some months back when I took immediate action and changed my G+ profile to the custom URL that I use now. I think it makes much more sense to do that.

    Moreover, with this you can even look up anyone else’s old posts or details by adding a person’s name slash posts, or about or any other page. I think those who haven’t changed their URL should do it immediately. It’s any day better than having those numbers, isn’t it?

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice, new week ahead 🙂

  4. Hi Ravi,

    Very informative post, i found it very helpful and useful for us.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Keep posting.

  5. Hey Ravi
    Absolutely crucial part of any social media profile is your name.
    This is something you can do with your facebook page, your g+ profile and also linkedin I believe.
    So if people are not doing this, then they are missing a chance at great branding.
    Great stuff

  6. Thanks for sharing. A custom vanity url looks a heck of a lot more professional than the default one! I was actually unaware they allowed you to change it. If only they allowed the same for YouTube channels.
