Hi Ayman,

If you meet the eligibility requirements (see bottom of thread https://support.google.com/business/answer/6068603?hl=en) then you should be able to claim the URL from your "About" page.

See original thread on How-To https://support.google.com/business/answer/6068603?hl=en

If you don't see the option to create the URL your page may not be verified or linked to a website properly.

there is no option to enforce Google to get a certain custom URL offered.
The only advise I can give you is not to accept their offered URL in case you don't like it.
Give them instead through their feedback option on G+ a note about your concern.

How is it possible for KLM to get a custom URL like: https://www.youtube.com/klm

When I go through the procedure Goolge forces to add letters to a URL that is OK and not taken on the Internet.
The URL they suggest is youtube.com/c/brandexample (is an example) Now the but I have to add some letters to it.
Why can't I leave it open like klm has? What to do?

This is what the helpfile is telling me:
You’ll see the custom URL you’ve been approved for, which you aren’t able to change. You may also need to add a few letters or numbers to make it unique to you.

This is what I don't want because all the extra letters or numbers is not what the brand is.
So it is not NEED to ADD it is MUST..
The feedback I get is: many people have the same name. Add some extra ..... (see the dutch feedback)

Veel mensen hebben dezelfde naam. Voeg enkele extra letters of cijfers toe aan deze URL om een unieke URL te krijgen.

@Peter all users get such a hint like your "Veel mensen hebben dezelfde naam. Voeg enkele extra letters of cijfers toe aan deze URL om een unieke URL te krijgen." (of course in the language) Its just their main procedure to get people to add unique stuff. But as told earlier. Just don't accept it and try waiting and send them repeatingly oyur feedbackabout your concerns.

Google+ say -
Other people may have the same name. Please add a few extra letters or numbers to this URL to get one that is unique for you.

I have a gmail id - systemofavinash@gmail.com( owner of this page)
