Please kindly look at this issue


"You’ll see the customised URL that 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."


Now I only want to use the already approved URL but it wont save. It keeps showing red that I still have to add an alphabet but I dont want to. I like the one already there

Hi @Instructius


The term 'custom url' is a bit misleading as you can't really select what goes into the URL - that is determined by Google's algorithm. As you've seen, this can sometimes mean you need to add numbers and/or letters to the URL.


If you don't like what's being offered then you can only decline and wait for a (hopefully) better offer.
