    Finally ! I don’t know why they didn’t inform me by some popping out message ?
    And why it had to take so long time. An url with tons of numbers looks awful and google doesn’t like dirtiness : )

    Thanks !

    Vanity sites are good if you are planning to be a celebrity online. It keeps you away from all the posers that can help your other “fans” or followers to get distracted. It is good that Google released this deal. Surely, it will get loads of users out of it.
