I have a claimed Google+ business page, and I currently run an AdWords Express campaign. I run the Express campaign as opposed to a regular AdWords campaign because the Express ad continues to show the 5 stars for reviews which I believe is an effective draw.

Usually the Express ad lists my website URL in the second line. I have noted, however, that sometimes I get this:

  1. Dallas Disability Atty - plus.google.com‎

    plus.google.com/SocialSecurityLaw

    The Others "ALSO" Do Disability- We "ONLY" Do Disability. Call Now!‎

If I go to that URL, https://plus.google.com/SocialSecurityLaw, I will get the Error 404 page. I love the idea of Google+ giving me that vanity url, but I suspect that it is not the case. An ideas Linda and community?

Thank you

That sounds like an Adwords Express problem.

Go to this help doc: https://support.google.com/adwords/express/?hl=en#
Click contact us, top right and there is a phone # to call.

At least the part about them replacing your site URL with the G+ URL is their problem.

The vanity URL problem is a different one. Does your regular G+ local link still work right?
