Admit it. You’ve Googled your­self.

I know I get a kick out of see­ing how many peo­ple are out there with my name and all the cool things they’ve done. For­tu­nate­ly for me, I haven’t encoun­tered any “ques­tion­able” search results, but I know tons of peo­ple who have.  One of the eas­i­est ways to ensure a search for your name returns your infor­ma­tion is to cre­ate a Google Pro­file. These pub­lic pro­files dis­play infor­ma­tion you care about and make it easy for those who Google you, to find you. Google Pro­files isn’t new, though it was recent­ly giv­en a new look. Recent updates have also helped users con­nect to oth­er pub­lic online ser­vices and inte­grate Google Buzz.  If you don’t have a Google Pro­file yet, be sure to cre­ate one soon.
