Google Profiles: Another Way to Get Noticed

Google has a relatively new tool that allows you to create a profile that may start appearing on page one of Google searches almost immediately. 

In fact, my profile appeared at the bottom of page one right after publishing. Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter still appear at the top, as will your own site (hopefully!); but it’s another opportunity to increase your visibility and add all important links to your company site, LinkedIn and Twitter profiles, and any other relevant site.

Profiles are easy to create and can include:

  • Your name and title
  • Links to various websites (I included my company’s site, LinkedIn profile, and Twitter profile, as well as WIC’s website and blog.)
  • A brief bio, including links
  • Photos (I uploaded images of some of my customer solution snap shots. NOTE: the photos have to reside on Picasa, Flickr, or other photo-sharing site and must be publicly viewable. I didn’t have any such account, but it only took a few minutes to create a Flickr account and upload the photos.)
