I really find I like Google+ as  place to discuss article marketing. 

Since today we DO also get to have a 'vanity' url for our Google profile. 

It uses your gmail id. So my vanity url is: https://www.google.com/profiles/katinka.spirituality

BTW - don't know why that link isn't turning into a link. Trying again: https://www.google.com/profiles/katinka.spirituality - doesn't work. Somehow the forum software thinks I'm trying to add the url: https://www.google.com/profiles/katinka.spirituality%EF%BB%BF%EF%BB%BF.

[only relevant for moderators and techs obviously]

https://www.google.com/profiles/katinka.spirituality

I am following you, but how do you get the vanity url, mine is just a number.

Katinka - I tried to make that link within your post, and it seems to work.

Maybe that bug shows up only occasionally. I'm not sure.

You can also get one by going to glpus.to  so I managed to get http://gplus.to/pkmcr

Ah the link didn't appear here either

Both the URLs not showing as links on the forum have unusual structures so maybe the code just isn't recognizing them as links.

If you have a gmail address, you already have a google+ vanity url - replace katinka.spirituality with your own gmail login (without the gmail part, obviously). 

If you don't have a gmail account yet, you can create a new one and decide precisely what you want the vanity url to look like.

Hope that made sense. 

I also have a gplus vanity url btw, but I like it better to have it on the actual google domain.

Katinka, right now I don't have a google email but I want to set my vanity URL. Where do I go to do that?
