How to request a custom Google + URL

callie bloom

Google hasn't provided any pre-approved URLs for me to review from my About page on Google+. Is there a place to go to request one?

I've looked through this, but can't find it.

As far as I know, Google is still rolling out the custom URL feature.  Big brands got the first bite at the pie, and then it will trickle down.  I may be wrong, but I think that you will just have to be patient.

I agree with the first answer, it's going to take a while before it is widely available. Your best bet is to keep an eye out for announcements about it. Be patient and you should get what you want eventually.

I know this post is a little old, but since Google is rolling out the custom URLs to everyone now, I thought it might be worthwhile to answer it anyway. I've written up a guide on how to get a vanity URL on Google plus. I hope this helps!
