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.
