How to Create a Google+ Short URL for Promotion!

Tip A Day #18

Lots of people ask me how to get a short URL specifically for their Google+ account. Here’s how…

Requirements:
A Google+ account

Step 1
Open your Google+ profile page. Look at the URL for a long string of numbers, like this:

https://plus.google.com/103493459351957813291/posts

Step 2
Copy just the numbers.

Step 3
Go to gplus.to. Enter a nickname. Paste in the numbers you copied. Click “Add”.

Now you have your short URL!
gplus.to/calilewis

    I’ve lost track of my gplus.to shortened Google+ url. How do I pull that shortened url up (so I can safely file it away) and use it?

    You can also buy a domain like http://sethgoldstein.me and have that forward to your Google+ page. Or if you have your own server you can run the opensource short url program YOURLS. This will still involve getting a small url to use with it but it works great! I use YOURLs for all my clients.
