Yesterday Google+ sent out emails to those that meet the requirements for a custom URL on their personal profiles as well as pages.
Take a look under your about in the links section to see if you are already approved if you did not get the email.
Google says you need to have the following in place in order to be eligible.
Eligibility for People:
- Ten or more followers
- Your account is 30 days old or more
- A profile photo
Eligibility for Local Google+ pages: Must be a verified local business
Eligibility for Non-local Google+ pages: Must be linked to a website
You can view the full G+ help here.
I had to verify with my mobile via a text message for my personal profile but all my pages were instant after that.
I must admit http://plus.google.com/+NicoletteRoux looks way prettier than a bunch of numbers!
Show off your new link in the comments! We would love to follow you 🙂
