How To Get A Vanity URL For Google+

Keep up with the very latest developments in the digital marketing world

If you've adopted Google+ into your Social Media family, then you may/probably/might want to get yourself a shorter, cleaner URL than the unmemorable one that you are automatically assigned.

Well, now you can.

It's actually a URL redirect from a 3rd party site but given Google+ doesn't yet have an official vanity URL service like Facebook, this will have to do for now.

Simply visit gplus.to, enter your chosen nickname, your current Google+ ID and you'll be presented with your new vanity loaded URL redirect.

I went from:

https://plus.google.com/110043683773408802295/

to

http://gplus.to/daveashworth

now I've done that, I'm not quite sure what I'll do with it, but for those that like their vanity filled, easy to remember URLs then this service will be useful till Google+ pull their fingers out.
