To get custom URL for your Google Plus profile has become a bit difficult after the Google's Changes in requirements for Custom URL eligibility on January 2, 2014. The method that we are going to discuss in this article works it same for both your Google+ profiles and Google+ Brand pages. However, let me explain first….

What is a custom URL?

Custom URL is a unique, short, and easy to remember web address for your Google+ profile that links directly to your profile or page. So, for example, My Urdu Blogger can direct people to google.com/+myurdublogger to get to their page rather than https://plus.google.com/101682363986581843856.

Why you need a custom URL?

A custom URL makes it easier for people to find your profile on the internet. Usually, when you create your account, Google+ used a long ID at the end of URL, which is hard for people to remember. That is why you need to create a custom URL for your account. Google+ custom URL lets you quickly point folks to your profile or page (no more long URLs!)

How to get a custom URL for a Google+ Profile

You can create a custom URL to make a short, easy memorable web address for your Google+ profile. Before claiming your custom URL, you must meet the following criteria to be eligible to apply for a custom URL. There are only some requirements to keep in mind when you are trying to get a custom URL. If you are having trouble, make sure:
  • You must have minimum ten or more followers (people who have added you to their circles)
  • Your account must be at least one month old
  • You have uploaded a profile picture/avatar
  • Your profile has a cover photo (optional)
  • There should not be any strike on your account
  • Your account is in good standing
I am 100% sure you will get a custom URL if you meet the requirements mentioned above.

Check to see if Your Google+ Profile or Page is Eligible for a Custom URL and Claim it

Log in to your account and go to profile you will see a dark gray bar saying “Your profile qualifies for a custom URL [Claim URL] under your account’s cover photo. Click on [Claim URL]

How to Add Contact Us Form in blogger static page instead of sidebar

Contact us form for blogger page
Contact us page is essential for a blog or website. One of the blogger limitations is that blogger did not give you a contact us page. Blogger launched it official Contact Us Form, but you can use it only in the sidebar or in the footer. If you do not want to add the contact us form to your Blog’s sidebar but want it to appear on a Separate particular page, then this tutorial will help you out. You can make it manually if you have knowledge of HTML, CSS and java script. However, it is not likely for everyone to learn HTML, CSS and java script. I found a solution for this purpose.
Move the Blogger Contact us Form from sidebar to a static Page
Follow instructions given below to move the Contact Form to a separate single page see a live demo of that contact us form.


1. Go to foxyform.com provide accurate information in all field as shown below.

4. Target e-mail address: This is very important here type your e-mail on which you want to receive Mails from users. Make sure target e-mail is okay.

Go to Blogger.com create a new page write page title "Contact Us" and disable comments. Switch to HTML mode and paste java script here publish your page.

Some Pre answered questions.

Question #1: Why I need a Contact Form?
Adding a Contact Us Form give a more professional look and make easy for users to communicate with you. They need just fill out some necessary information in the contact form, and just press send. That makes it so easy for them. It is also useful to the blog admins, as they do not have to expose their email address on your blog.

Question #2: Why not have it on the sidebar?
Because the user can send you (owner) feedback, suggestions, and queries without opening up an email application like Gmail/Hotmail, and so forth. Another point blogger provides a contact form widget, which you can add in sidebar or footer. However, it not good, for user experiences it loads with every page which user visit on your site. Most visitors did not need it. Therefore, it is not necessary for every time. It makes loading speed slow.

Question #3: Can we add some extra fields to the Blogger Contact Form?
Yes, I have already explained that you can add many additional fields according to your needs.

Question #4: Does this form have any impacts on SEO?
No, this is 100% SEO optimized.

Question #5: Is this safe from SPAM?
No doubt, yes 100% free from Spam. This script is included with Google reCAPTCHA anti-spam protection.
Question #6: Where will messages be delivered?
All messages that user send you through contact form will be forwarded to email, which you have you to create this script.
Question #7: why Contact Form is not sending the message?
