How to get your custom Google Plus URL?
I want to say that now at start, Google doesn’t have any link or a separate page where you can make this change. You have to wait for a mail stating that you can change your URL. You can visit your profile and can check for a notification too for getting custom URL. When you get a notification, just click “Get it” button and agree terms and conditions and create your URL. Google can also ask you mobile number to verify. Enter your number and verify it. After all this process, you will get your Google Plus custom URL like google.com/+YourName.
What you need to get Claim URL notification?
Yes there is some conditions which you have to fulfill if you want your custom URL. Google mentioned this in their help page.
If you meet the eligibility requirements, you can get a custom URL for your Google+ account or page. This means you can choose one of the custom URLs Google preassigns to your Google+ profile or page. Depending on the preassigned custom URL, you may also need to add a few letters or numbers to make it unique to you.
In order to create a public custom URL of your Google Plus profile, you should have all the things that Google requires. The requirement for creating a custom URL is that you must have your own display picture. You should also have at least 10 peoples in your circles. The profile should also 30 days old to be eligible to create a custom URL. If you have all these things updated then you can anticipate a mail and notification to change your username.
