(How can I change my URL, way too long to advertise - I looked everywhere and YES my business got a postcard and is verified - still no way to create custom url)

Hi Lee,

Unfortunately, there is no way to request or do any one thing specifically to trigger the custom URL. And it's not really a custom URL. Google offers you a pre-selected URL and you either take it or leave it.

Ok anything has got to be better than that atrocity. I am making printed fliers with all our URL's - we have facebook.com/usaautoglasslv as is twitter the same... usaautoglasslv

The url for G+ is /u/109496817488568089743

Way too long and hard to remember. If it's a preset URL great anything is better than that - any idea how long (on average, I know each case varies) it takes to get your "take it or leave it" preselected url?

Hi Lee

An alternative is to use the Google URL shortener at goo.gl. that'll give you a nice short one you can use (but not customised).

Also, see your other post for a more full explanation of what's likely holding Google back from offering a custom URL
