Any Google+ members will know that the url to their profile or business page is made up of a absurdly long string of letters and numbers and letter. Celebrities had the option of creating a vanity url (e.g. google.com/huejackman) but this week they're rolling the feature out to the great unwashed. I had several emails waiting for me this morning, advising me which of my accounts were now eligible for a custom url. Unfortunately Google have taken the liberty of choosing your url for you and for businesses they've seen it fit to include the url suffix (.com .co.uk etc) without the dots. So one of my pages that was: plus.google.com/u/0/b/104741532872168617317/+YoumaynowCoUk/about is now: google.com/+YoumaynowCoUk Better? Yes but adding couk or com to the end of the name seems stupid, they should have just done a first come first served basis. So not really custom urls at all but ones that Google choose for you that are a bit naff but maybe slightly more pleasant to print on a business card or something.
