This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

They began roll out of custom vanity user URL's in August this year. Several articles on this have stated the initial roll out will be for celebrities and brands. I don't believe it is possible yet. I suspect this to be available in a couple months based on other Google+ roll outs.

Article on vanity URLs.

lets hope not. Vanity URLs would be a serious Charlie Foxtrot. There are better ways. – Prisoner Oct 23 '12 at 12:08

Currently it's not possible for everyone to have their own vanity URL for Google+. Right now they're rolling it out slowly to verified people and well-known brands.


There is at least one third party app that will give you a personalized url (but not an official one): http://gplus.to/

Disclosure: I'm not affiliated with gplus.to in any way except being a user.
