Google_plus-icon_-300x300
Get your Google+ URL is very easy however the description given by Google’s answers site on how to get google plus URL is obscure and very user unfriendly (in my opinion).
If you’re wondering why on earth would you ever need this URL, some useful place where you might need it is whether you’re a blogger like me and you need to link your blogspot or custom wordpress account with your google+ or you want it to link any other social network like Linkedin or Facebook to your Goo+

Below is a 3 steps guide to follow to get your Google+ account URL. The URL is not user friendly so you might also want to create a custom URL like:
plus.google.com/your_custom_link

1) Log in to Google+

2) Click on the this link or manually go to URL address http://plus.google.com/me

3) Look at the URL in the address bar, it should look something like this:

 https://plus.google.com/112967367947674343110/posts

4) That is your Google+ URL!

If you have installed Multi-site BuddyPress or WordPress you can easily add adsense advertisements and there is no need to use any plugin or anything to add Adsense ads to Widgets.

This site itself is running BuddyPress and my quick research on plugin to use to add Adsense ads just led me to various suggestions plenty of different approaches like:

 

None of this however doesn’t seemed to work for me until finally I found this post pointing out that it is possible to use embedded WordPress Widgets to add the required code to WordPress.

I’ve tested and it seems, the Widget using Method to inject advertisements into your BuddyPress social network works perflectly fine.

Here is how to add Adsense to BuddyPress
