I want to configure a custom URL for my company's Google Plus account. After uploading a profile picture and validating my webpage, Google offers me the appropriate option but demands me to "add a few letters or numbers to make the URL unique to you." This implicates instead of
plus.google.com/c/Mycompany I have to use something like
plus.google.com/c/Mycompany23. This happens even though
Mycompany (which is a placeholder) is relatively unique (which is a reason I chose it in the first place) and the name is available at G+. My questions are:
- Is there any way around this requirement and to get
plus.google.com/c/Mycompanywithout additional letter or number?
- If not, is there any best practice or recommendation, which letters or numbers to choose? (".com" for instance is not allowed)
