New non-numeric “custom” URLs for Google+ pages.

New non-numeric “custom” URLs for Google+ pages.

Google is actively rolling out non-numeric “custom” URLs for it’s users and pages.

yes, we’ve got one too:

This +NextScripts is not our page ID and it cannot be used in our API.

Here is how to get the numeric page ID:

1. Login to your account, go to “pages” and select your page.

2. You will see the front of your page with the new URL. Click “Manage this page” button.


3. You will get to the dashboard and dashboard will show the numeric ID in the URL.


Alternately you can just click “Manage this page” right from the pages selection.

      What exactly is not working? You don't see the numeric URL when you go to the dashboard?

    The numeric value provided by the business page doesn't post to the business page, it posts to the user page. I have tried multiple different ways of trying to get it to post to the business page with no success.

    Never mind, it just dawned on me. Can't just enter numeric value and submit test post.

    Update Settings > Test Post

    i have just configured the autopost for my google+ business page ID : 111625194542345145534
    and it doesn't work.

    The submit test post returns :
    [pgID] =>
    [isPosted] => 0
    [pDate] => 2014-03-25 10:41:32
    [Error] => Error (NXS): Lost Login info. Please contact support

    Array ( [pgID] => [isPosted] => 0 [pDate] => 2014-03-25 10:41:32 [Error] => Error (NXS): Lost Login info. Please contact support ) "
