Include .com in my Google+ Page/Youtube Channel URL

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello,

 

I just created a Youtube Channel and Google+ Page, and I'm eligible to customize my URL.

 

The suggested URL given to me is: google.com/+Plantaerevolution and of course Google tells me to add a few characters. It does not let me add .com

My current Google+ Page URL: plus.google.com/112200481775575851907 

My current Youtube URL: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClEaWul4jayh-c7LQtZ5RkQ

 

What I want: I'd like to keep the name PlantaeRevolution.com the same across all Social Media.

Question: My understanding is that once I claim my customized URL on Google+, I'll have the same name on Youtube. Am I correct? 

 

 

Thank you in advance.

@PlantaeRevolutioncom The basics of it will be to create a new YouTube channel using the G+ page as the owner. Then it will inherit the Vanity URL automatically.

Hello, How long has the page been verified (check mark next to URL) ? In my experience, with G+ pages, you need to be actively posting and gain some followers to establish some credibility.

 

Although I have seen some rare instances, where if you simply wait a week, the vanity will open up and not require adding extra characters. I looked around and saw no other profiles or pages with that domain name attached to them, so you should get the vanity URL.

 

The URL is directly connected the website URL. Hope this was of help although I have seen some rare instances, where if you simply wait a week, the vanity will open up and not require adding extra characters.

Hi @PlantaeRevolutioncom

 

@Ben Fisher's points are exactly on topic for a custom URL but correct me if I'm wrong but how can you ever get a URL from a website (other than your own) that ends in .com?

 

Won't that break the TLD and thus create an endless loop? You could get /plantaerevolutioncom /plantaerevolutionDotcom but I don't see how you could get the actual .com as part of the URL.

 

If you've seen this anywhere then please let me know - as I said, I could be wrong (and often am!)

@PriyaC You are 100% correct, the only valid Vanity URL will be PlantaeRevolution 

 

Or PlantaeRevolutionCom , no special characters are allowed in the Vanity URL.

Hi, @PriyaC,
Thank you for confirming to me that I cannot use .com in the customized URL. As @Ben F mentioned, I was able to claim a vanity URL! I just needed to wait! Now, my URL is google.com/+PlantaeRevolution :smileyhappy:
Thank you very much to both for answering my question.

 

I have another question, though. Now that I have a customized URL on Google+, how do I do the same for my Youtube Channel?
