Custom URL for Page

This question was originally posted on the former Help Forum but has been modified for clarity and answered by Community User Tim Capper.

 

I have created one month ago a Google+ Business Page Brand and also associated to my Youtube account. I associated a website: zie-skaidrix.esy.es and have 10 followers.
 
 
I meet the conditions for a Custom URL for the page, but I did not notice an email. 
 
How do I get a Custom URL for my business?

 

Answer: The one thing that I can see, is that you don't use the account. You have 1 post from yesterday. Try and use the account a bit more regularly.

 
Google does not send an email. When Google feels that your account is in good standing order, you will see a big blue banner offering you a custom url in the brand page account.

Hi, I have a similar problem. I am in the process of starting a new business with a new web site etc etc. I would like to put a link on my web site to my google page, am I right in understanding that I cant do this until I have used the google service for awhile?

Not sure I read or understood our post correctly.

But you can link your GoogleMyBusiness page as soon it is verified.

Even in case you don't have already a custom URL you can use and link the G+ page URL as to extract from your dasgaboard.

In case you later will get offered and have accepted any  custom URL the origininal URL based on a digital identifier still works.

Hi Colan, hope you can help with this - I know it's not cool to change your custom url, but my business's name has changed and people are getting all kinds of confused between the old and new spelling. Old spelling is Upiknik, new spelling is Upicnic.
Help please!
I'll send you cookies, I promise.

My business page was in a good standing with regular posts and updates I had also claimed custom URL for the same but it was disabled and I had to create one again but I wonder how to reclaim the same custom URL to the new page created by me with the same address and name and email I'd.
