Custom URLs for Google Plus Profiles and Pages
Many people (including me) have been striving to get custom URL for their Google Plus profile address. Why? Because https://plus.google.com/117969437312357903817/ just way too scary to use.
I’ve just found out that you can use https://profiles.google.com/your-gmail-username to direct others to your Google Plus profile page. For example, you can try mine, here;
But that method only perform a redirect after you click it or hit the enter key (if you type it on your web-browser’s address bar), the address will show that scary URL, again.
I read this one article by one of Google’s worker, that they are providing this feature for limited number of verified profiles and pages. While the rest of us, can wait.
For you that wish a shorter Google Plus Profile URL, you can go to http://gplus.to to create a shorter URL for your Google Plus Profile address (similar to that http://fb.me/username).
