Google is constantly trying to find you and your business on the web. There are many ways for you to develop your online persona that can help Google find you.
Social media identities on Facebook, LinkedIn and personal blogs all contribute to your online identity. The more ways search engines have of finding you and your business, the more likely you will appear in search results…it’s simple!! Over two years ago Google launched a basic version of Google Profiles. It enabled users to add personal details to their Google profile. They have recently made some modifications to their interface that look pretty cool. You can now:
1) Add photographs to your profile.
2) Give a brief description about yourself.
3) Add links to your websites and social media profiles.
4) Add your occupation.
5) Add your education.
6) Add places that you have lived in the world.
7) Add your e-mail address for people to contact you.
8) Add some of your achievements.
9) Add your Google buzz identity.
10) Share photographs from Picasso.
What is the point of another online persona? Is it just to feed our virtual egos? Nope, this is all part of an initiative by Google to socialize the web. This experiment has been on-going since 2009. Have a look at the video below to show how Google can integrate profiles, links and information into search results.
