The custom URL instructions for Google+ page are no longer relevant.

Hello,

 

I've tried many times to follow the instructions to create a custom URL for my Google+ business page. It seems that those instructions no longer apply to the new Google+ updates. Can you please tell me how I can create a customURL?

 

I would even settle for finding a non-custom URL that I can link to, but I cannot find that anywhere. Any thoughts?

 

Thank you!
David

A custom URL never have been a matter of "creating"

Hve been always a matter of getting such URL proposed and the owner could
accept this proposal (sometimes adding few characters)
As far as I know this procedure is still available in case the business
listing qualifies for a custom URL.
What are the details of your actual business listing?

Please include the following with your question:
1. Full business name
2. Current business address
3. Current telephone number
4. Google+ URL

Thanks, Helmut. Unfortunately, I cannot even figure out how to find the Google+ URL. The page is called "PianoCub".

This is what I tried following before. I found that none of the information is applicable anymore. It looks like everything has been moved. If I skip the first three steps, which no longer have the buttons indicated, I can go directly to "About" by trying to edit my profile, but there is nothing under about that says "Get URL".

My guess is that your brand page is for unknown reason not in a"standing"
to get an offer for a custom URL
