    Ok, so I have a Google+ page of my local business and I would like a custom url. Problem is I can't have google.com/+MyBrand, neither google.com/+MyBrandCom, although none of the two are taken. They force me to add a few characters to google.com/+MyBrandCom, which sucks 'cause I don't wanna have a url like google.com/+MyBrandComABC. Can Google be more annoying than that? And can I do something about this or I have no other option but to take their crap google.com/+MyBrandComZXLKSGMNKSNMASJNCFQA url?

    Yup, it's everywhere. Few lucky people were able to pull it off without adding any numbers. Guess, you got a popular name ! :heh:

    Why not leave it the way it is? E.q. the hash string they gave you at the first place.

    No one is going to visit your Google+ page anyway.

    I guess I don't have a better choice.

    I know, but why on earth can't I have google.com/+MyBrandCom if it's not taken? I have twitter.com/MyBrandCom, I have facebook.com/MyBrandCom, but I can't have google.com/+MyBrandCom. This crap drives me crazy and now I hate Google more than ever before. May they burn in hell.
