    Any benefits from adding keywords to custom Google url?

    Hello,

    So I was offered a Google custom url, yet it prompted me to add some letters or numbers to make it unique. So I am curious if it hurts adding a few keywords to describe the business?

    Like plus.google.com/mycompany-plummers-Atlanta-Georgia

    Does this hurt anything or just plan stupid?

    Thanks for your thoughts. I just do not want to mess this up.

    Not sure it will hurt but won't help with ranking and sort of defeats the purpose of a branded URL which is to make it short and easy for customers to remember and type.
