Google Profiles in Google Search Results

image With the introduction Google’s recent introduction of FriendConnect (look in the bottom right-hand corner of this blog!) and the profile pages you can build for your profile ON FriendConnect, it was just a matter of time before Google started to index those profile pages in their very own search results.

Depending upon how well you use it (Such as filling out good titles for your links, and content rich information in your “About Me” section) you may see a message like this on your Google profile like it appeared on mine this afternoon.

Your profile is eligible to be featured in Google search results. You can find your profile at <link here>.

Here are some ways to share your new profile with your friends:

  • Add it to your IM status message
  • Link to it in your email signature
  • Note it in Google Reader
  • Post about it on Twitter
  • Share it on Facebook

These last three were dynamically created based upon the services which were hooked up in the Add Links section.  Make sure to set a vanity URL that matches your name as it appears in all other social media.

The awesome thing about it is that you can link to every last thing in the universe that you’re on from here.  FriendFeed, Twitter, Facebook, Digg, Friendster, Your Blog(s), You Article Marketing Feeds, Reddit, Delicious, YouTube, YouNameIt!

In my few tests, Google’s profile page for the user name in question (for several of my nomes de plume (sp?)) came up in the first page of results again and again.

Conclusion

If you want to be found set up your own Google Profile, and link to every last thing in the world with your name on it (that you’re proud of, at least).

To sign up, just do so over in the bottom right of my blog in the “Friend Connect” box using the “Join This Site” button. and you’ll get started right away in setting up your Google profile.

Thank you so much for this info. As I build my business, it is great to hear about new ways to “to get out there”.

I use mine pretty heavily. I only wish when I update it, everything else updates, like LinkedIn, VisualCV, etc, but knowing Google, that will come soon enough ;)
