Change Google Plus URL
We all know that Google plus  hasn’t made it easy for business owners to have a shorter and friendlier url for their businesses’ pages. We still don’t know how to change a Google Plus business page url. I have read many sites regarding this problem and I still haven’t found a right solutions for the issue.

An employee at Google, Saurabh Sharma, said, “At first, we’re introducing custom URLs to a limited number of verified profiles and pages. But over time we plan to offer custom URLs to many more brands and individuals, so please stay tuned!” Hopefully, this soon comes as soon as possible because we have waited for a long time. However, I found a page where you can request a Google+ page verification.

Here are the requirements to verify you Google plus page:

  • Your Google+ page must be authorized by your commercial entity, organization, brand, or product.
  • Your Google+ page’s profile must contain a link to your organization’s website.
  • Your organization’s website must connect to your Google+ page, by adding the Google+ badge or by adding a snippet of code.
  • Your Google+ page must already have a meaningful number of followers.
