Question re: custom URLs

We have created 2 new Google+ pages for our company:

One for Austria: https://plus.google.com/u/0/114655663331580219428/posts
One for Switzerland: https://plus.google.com/u/0/103160933440703690484/posts
 
These have been created in addition to several other pages we have for our markets.

We have a clear naming convention for our custom URLs.

For example, our Danish page: https://plus.google.com/+momondo_dk/posts

However, when trying to secure custom URLs for these 2 new accounts, we are met with the option of 2 pre-defined URLs, neither of which match our chosen naming convention (see attached screenshot).

We used to be able to select how the custom URL looked. Is there a way for us to get that option again?

We want:

https://plus.google.com/+momondo_at/posts

and

https://plus.google.com/+momondo_ch/posts

Hi +Brett Ackroyd If you're unhappy with the url offered then do not accept it and submit feedback from the profile or page in question along with a few desired urls. You will not receive any reply from feedback but your offer may be changed.

Press the @ key outside of a text input area to activate the feedback wizard or you can find a link to feedback at the bottom of the home menu.

I have a client that has a google plus business page. She doesn't remember setting it up. She thinks someone else did it for her. She contacted the guy she thought did it, but he says he didnt. We tried every "recovery" possibility to no avail. Nothing seems to work. How do I find out what email address is associated with the Google Plus Page? What are my options? Thanks

+Pete Weachter use the 'contact us' on the page linked to in my previous comment. Your client should be eligible for a call back from google business support to assist with this.

Hi +Kellie Taylor there is not a lot on that profile that would indicate it is impersonating anyone, that said the person who is being impersonated would have to file the report.

I thought so too, therefore I asked our SEO rep and he said that the only reason why we were appearing in such placement is because our competitor does not have a google page account, I wanted to verify how much truth is in there ?

EXCUSE ME Google..what the hell is this supposed to mean??

+Kuro Queen actually, another possibility is that you had blocked the person before filing the abuse report. Once the person is blocked you don't have access to the posts of the person you have blocked, and you will need to unblock before you can send the abuse report. Though I'm sure this message is not associated with that action and is due to a double click on the report abuse, where the second click registered after the report and hit the 'cancel report' option that shows.

If I move a photo of my mobile to the bin, should the auto backup version also get removed to an auto backup bin or get permanently deleted?

Just a quick question. Is there any way to save Google+ stories or will they disappear if I move the photos off my phone?

Hi,
I have an online only business, and in error have set up a local business page. Can I convert this to a brand business page - also, I am not sure if I actually have one of those already. I find the whole thing very unclear. Apologies for my ignorance, please advise. thanks

For profiles there is an option in settings where you can hide them. Same should be available on Pages I think.

Hi G+ help
I have some questions about people who use G+ to impersonate fictional, celebrity figure, etc. Terms of use 12 - Impersonation or Deceptive Behavior. Do not use our products to impersonate.
I have reported the account below as they keep appearing in my 'What Hot' feed. I find it quite ironic considering the terms of use set out by G+ yet these type of accounts are still active.

Q. How long does it take before a decision is made after people like myself report these accounts.
Q. Why do these impersonation accounts appear in my and my friends news feed everyday yet are never shut down/suspended? And if you suggest muting or blocking these accounts well that is not the answer.

I might add a friend reported the below account over a month ago and since then, yet the account is still active and has not been suspended or shut down due to the violating of the terms of use!? Why is that?

I apologise +John Elstone i read you're comment too quickly or misread it. Ok now i understand G+ has a abuse team and are tight lipped, fair enough. Well i'll just keep reporting them just like other people do when they keep popping up as a 'What's Hot' post. Thanks

How do I verify the Google Plus Business page for my business?
https://plus.google.com/+Thevideographyblog-fans/about

I want the connected YouTube channel to become verified as well.
https://www.youtube.com/user/VideographyBlog

I have entered in my address in Google Plus, but there is nowhere that asks me to verify the address.

I don't remember if I entered "Brand" business or "Profile" when I created the page, but it is already connected to my YouTube account. Do I need to change it?
for people who like to make videos...

Hi +Victor Gabriel Epand there is no way to request name verification, Google manually allocate these at their own discretion. That is a brand page.

Hello! I have a question about managing Google Plus pages. How do I disconnect my Google account from the Google Plus/Google Business pages of a company I no longer work for? The company's pages are still listed under the "my pages" option of my Google account.

Where can we find date of last name change. I am almost certain that it has been more than 90 days now but unsure if it restarts even if you attempt.

+timothy fintan langner  it's not really a hack, that is the url you are taken to when you choose autobackup from the dropdown list in the search bar when in photos.
