Google allows custom URL for Google+ pages

GooglePlus SEO Tampa 300x225 Google allows custom URL for Google+ pagesFollowing Facebook, Twitter and other Social Media giants Goggle finally has made the customization of the Google+ URL available.  It’s however not for everybody and is not as flexible as it sounds.

To qualify for personal Google+ page it needs to have 10 or more followers, be at least 30 day old and have a profile photo.

For the Local Google+ pages it only requires to be verified as a local business and for Global Google+ pages it must be linked to a website.

At this moment it’s difficult to predict whether it will affect the SEO (Search Engine Optimization) of websites and a ranking of the Local Google+ pages or a websites linked to the Google+ pages. I think that it’will grade Google+ pages on verified trusted pages and  not verified  ones. Which in return may affect the ranking as well.

    I tend not to leave many comments, but i did a few searching and wound up here Google allows custom URL for
    Google+ pages. And I actually do have 2 questions for you if you don’t mind.
    Is it only me or does it look like a few of these responses look
    as if they are coming from brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you
    are posting at other online sites, I’d like to keep up
    with anything new you have to post. Could you make a list of the complete urls of your shared pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
