Google Plus does not offer vanity URLs to its users. This is unfortunate since the Google+ profile URL’s are just nasty (e.g 109387712139587362723). The problem? It makes exchanging Google+ profiles with someone face-to-face impossible. If only there was a simple way to create a short, easy to remember vanity URL… Groovy, I found one!
With Gplus.to, users can create short URLs for their Google+ profile in a few simple clicks. To get started, copy your Google+ profile ID. If you don’t know how to find it, just open your Google+ profile and copy the number.
Next, navigate to Gplus.to in your browser and choose the nick name you want to use for your Google+ profile. Paste in your profile ID and click the Add button and you should be golden.
Note You cannot use special characters in your nickname.
Test it out by just navigating to your new custom URL for example, here’s what mind looks like: http://gplus.to/GroovyH
