Can Google’s New People Profile Help You?

Filed under: Information,Social — Tags:

Earlier this week Google started “profiles” as a way for people to provide their personal information to Google that will be displayed on search results pages for their names. Google had this to say about the new feature “a way to give you greater control over what people find when they search for your name.”

I don’t know about you, but I think that I’m more comfortable with people finding and reading what I write about me rather than what others do, even though it may be good. So I’m trying this out. At the very least I’m getting some links to my site and profiles on Twitter and LinkedIn which may help business.

Google may be trying to do something else here, like starting it’s own social network instead of buying Twitter, but at least I feel like I’m more in control even if I’m probably not. Try it out yourself, then Google yourself and see how it works.
