Social media mangers on your mark … Unique URL land grab coming right up! It seems that verified pages and people may get first shot at grabbing a custom URL, so hopefully I'll get first call at my own name http://google.com/+lynetteyoung and http://www.google.com/+womenofgoogleplus.
For the record, there is no way on Earth Britney Spears should get a custom link before I do. Hugh Jackman… well, I'll make an exception for him.

Custom URLs for profiles and pages: a first step
Your Google+ profile is a place for you to share your passions with the millions of people who come to Google each day. Whether you're a clothing brand showing off your latest fashions (google.com/+hugoboss), an athlete talking about the game (google.com/+davidbeckham), or an actor recalling a favorite role (google.com/+hughjackman), your Google+ profile helps you connect with the people who share your interests. Today we’re introducing custom URLs to make it even easier for people to find your profile on Google+.
A custom URL is a short, easy to remember web address that links directly to your profile or page on Google+. For instance, google.com/+toyota to unveil their latest models, can share her upcoming appearances at google.com/+britneyspears, can share game trailers and videos at google.com/+assassinscreed, and can help travellers find great deals at google.com/+delta.can now use
Custom URLs will also be available to people and pages worldwide, so brands like Globo can point readers to google.com/+epoca, or any of their other Brazilian publications.
At first, we’re introducing custom URLs to a limited number of verified profiles and pages. But over time we plan to offer custom URLs to many more brands and individuals, so please stay tuned!
