Use myGP.is to give your Google+ profile a Vanity URL with User Stats

Here is a convenient service that allows you to create a vanity URl for your Google+ profile along with the ability to track users who click on it. If you are new to Google+ and wondering why you would need a proper name for your profile, it is because as of now Google+ does not allow users to name their profile and if you want to share your profile with others. It looks something like a long string of letters with plus.google thrown in. So a service like this adds to the aesthetics of your Google+ profile address. In addition the service also offers user stats so once you share your profile address on your blog or other platforms you cna see how many people clicked on it and how they found you.

How does myGP.is work:
Once you sign-up for the service you can get your own Google+ vanity URL with an address that would like like this www.myGP.is/username
You get a QR code for your profile that can be shared online and offline so people can land on your profile after scanning the code.
You get a dashboard with stats showing you how many people found your profile using your Vanity URL or QR Code. You can also check how they found you and from which countries they come from. All this in real-time.

So give it a whirl and let us know what you think in the comments section below.
