for Google+ non-business page:

  • If there is a custom URL available for your account, you will see a banner below your name on your Plus profile.
  • Click the link in the banner.
  • You’ll see the custom URLs you can choose from. You may also need to add a few letters or numbers in the text box to make it unique to you.
  • Next to I agree with Terms of Service click the checkbox.
  • Click Change URL.
  • When you’re ready to add your custom URL to your profile, click Confirm.

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
  • You do not try to get 4th custom URL in past 2 years with your name
