Google+ is the latest social networking website from Google. Its said to be a Facebook and Twitter killer, but so far that has not been true, since many of the popular features of Facebook and twitter are not available on Google+.
For instance, unlike the vanity URL of Facebook, the profile URL on Google+ is really ugly and very hard to remember.
One way to make the Google+ URL short is to use one of the URL shortening service like, bit.ly or gplus.to.
But if you run a website, you can create a great personalized Google+ URL using simple .htaccess redirection. Here’s the procedure:
Login to your web server via FTP and download the .htaccess file in your root folder. Now open the .htaccess file using any plain text editor like notepad or notepad++ and add this code at the end of it:
Save the file and upload it on your web server, overwriting the existing .htaccess file there. That’s it. Now if you visit http://www.yourblog.com/+ it will redirect you to your Google+ profile.
