There’s a free service called gplus.to that shortens your Google+ URL into a nice, easy to remember link. Plug in your G+ profile ID number on gplus.to and a customized URL will be generated for you. You get to choose your preferred user name, as long as it’s still available, and like magic, your long URL becomes a short, sweet extension of you. Check it out:

What a difference, right? It’s super quick to do and I’m going to walk you through the process in 4 easy steps.
Step 1: Go to http://gplus.to/
Step 2: Access your Google+ profile page and copy your Google+ ID numbers.
Step 3: Enter your “Nick Name” (how you want your name to appear in the URL) and paste “Your Google+ ID” in the boxes provided.
Step 4: If your “Nick Name” is available, a green banner will appear.
There you go, you’re ready to rock with your new Google+ URL. I look forward to connecting with you on G+ and if you need more help let me know.
