    Google+ vanity URLs showing on local pages

    Not many Google+ Local pages have "vanity" URLs. Some do, and I see them from time to time. But I've never noticed it being displayed on the page itself. But there it is, in its own big box, right below the "description" field - and pushing the reviews down.

    I've never noticed this before. It is​ new, right - or am I just losing my marbles?

    Re: Google+ vanity URLs showing on local pages

    Thanks Phil!

    I've never noticed before so might be new. But then again like you said I don't see that many small business listings with vanity URLs.

    I wanted to find and see myself. Instead of typing vanity URL, I searched maps. But they have a dupe at same address, that ranks above the listing Phil showed, so had to dig a little to find the right listing.

    Here is direct link for anyone that wants to see actual page.

    Nice header too! Like the way they did the logo on the background.

    Thanks for sharing Phil! I'll be keeping my eyes open now for more examples.

    Just spotted one on a business that does not appear to be a big brand or anything.
