Thanks for this tip! Walter Szymanski May 16, 2012 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? Seth Goldstein May 11, 2012 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.
