After a long wait, we finally got approved for a custom branded url on Google+. Our NEW Google+ url is google.com/+DesignableCo.
(The message from google): You’re now eligible for a unique Google+ custom URL that lets you easily point folks to your page (no more long URLs!). Important note from Google: You can’t change your custom Google+ URL after you create it, so be sure you like yours before you finalize it.
Previously, we had run an htaccess script that redirected to a custom vanity url we created. It will now be a lot easier to display the url on printed materials and on the web, not to mention telling someone, without that long string of numbers originally in place.
