Google, or more precisely Google My Business, has a new short URL feature. Here’s how you can create a short URL for your Google My Business Listing.
Watch How to Create a Short URL for Your Google My Business Listing on YouTube.
Log in to your Google My Business listing at https://www.google.com/business. If you don’t already have a listing for your business, you’ll need to first create one. And, of course, you’ll need the login and password that controls your listing.
Click on your listing and then click on ‘info’ in the middle of the screen. Here is where Google My Business hides all the attributes of your business. Scroll down until you find the @ sign and then click into it.
Choose a short URL for your business, such as your business name or acronym. I choose ‘jasoneg3’ for mine as I have had that handle for many years on social media sites, such as my Twitter handle at https://twitter.com/jasoneg3.
Test it by going to https://g.page/ plus your new short URL / @ handle as in https://g.page/jasoneg3. I recommend doing it in an incognito window just to be sure it works, and give it a few days to stabilize before promoting it. Then you can promote your new short URL for your business, perhaps as a way of asking happy customers for reviews.
