Rules for getting a custom URL

There are a few rules to keep in mind when you’re trying to get a custom URL. If you’re having trouble, make sure:

  • You have ten or more followers (people who have added you to their circles)
  • Your account is at least 30 days old
  • Your profile has a profile photo
  • Your account is in good standing

Note: Custom URLs must meet the Google+ User Content and Conduct Policy and the Google+ custom URLs terms of use. If you find a custom URL that doesn’t match our policies, please report the profile.
