Google Plus provides you with your own profile link once you register for a Google+ account. But Google Plus profile links are quite long and contains a 21 digit unique id number. This might not be very convenient if you want to share your profile link with others. You would rather want a short pretty link in such cases. So, today we are listing five websites where you can create short profile links for your Google+ profile.
1. Gplus.to: Gplus.to was the first website to realize this opportunity and launched the first Google Plus shortener. The website has some nice features and design and is the most popular website for shortening your Google Plus profile links. The Google+ shortening service is already being used officially by top celebrities including Ashley Tisdale and Mariah Carey. Gplus.to is the most established and stable Google+ shortener and if you want to use a stable link then it would probably be the best bet.
2. Plusya: Plusya is another Google Plus Profile shortener which is highly recommended by us. Plusya not only helps you in creating a short URL for you Google Plus profile but also allows you to track and analyze your profile traffic. This might be useful if you want to keep a track of the visitors to your Google Plus profile.
3. ˖.name: ˖.name is quite interesting as it is the shortest of all the Google Plus URL shortening services. But the major risk in using this shortener is that the “˖” in the website name is a special character and cannot be reproduced by using a normal plus sign. So, it might be tricky as people might use a normal plus and might end up in a dead link. But they also have made a second shortener named MyPlus.name which also has the same feature and interface. And the good thing is that you are provided with both the short URL options when you create a new nick through any of the two websites.
4. Glpl.us: Glpl.us also shortens your Google Plus profile URL very efficiently. The domain name is quite short and so you can have a pretty short profile link.
5. Plus.ly: Plus.ly is another nice Google Plus URL shortener. The domain is nice and short and the interface is simple yet nice.
Gplus.name is another Google Plus shortener but in reality it is a normal basic url shortener and nothing else. The interface is extremely basic and we would not recommended it unless the other four are not working.
In addition to the above listed services, you can use any url shortener such as goo.gl, tinyurl.com, bit.ly, ow.ly, su.pr, is.gd etc. for shortening your Google Profile URL like you do in case in case of posting links in twitter. To create a nice profile page with all your social networking links including Google Plus, you can also use the about.me custom profile generation service.
