Google Plus Business or Personal pages are now available to all. I created pages for myself and two businesses then noticed the page URLs are lengthy. A long URL is hard to remember and accurately type into a computer. I used a neat tool to shorten the URL to a memorable set of characters.
Here are examples of how the original Google Plus URLs look compared to the shorter versions of the URL.
- Original CyberLife Tutors Google Plus Business Page URL http://plus.google.com/b/111328624874728511756/ and shorter http://gplus.to/cyberlifetutors
- Original “Where Are You Today?” Google Plus Business Page URL http://plus.google.com/b/100887946003424852551/ and shorter http://gplus.to/waytb
You can create your own vanity URLs at http://gplus.to. Just enter the original Google Plus page URL and the desired new URL. Your will then have a Google Plus page URL http://gplus/username.

Great Post. I used http://ongpl.us/ to get my vanity URL- had zero issues.
Thanks for this alternative site for Google Plus vanity URLs.
This is not any vanity url, it is just url shortner which allows you to short the url with your choice.
Thanks for your comments. According to Wikipedia, “social networking sites like Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter offer vanity URLs to their users where their username is in the URL.”
That’s because those social networks DO let you have vanity URL’s, which is a feature offered through their settings. If you change the URL of a facebook fanpage, that is it’s permanent address and can be seen in your address bar. If you follow your links, you still have that ugly long URL that you were trying to change.
Not a vanity URL, just a shortened one. Like bit.ly or other URL shorteners
Does this one work, even if Google+ is already out of beta?
Thanks for your note. Yes, the tool for creating a Google Plus vanity URL still works. – April
