What is Google saying about you?
After reading Steve Kappre's post about Googling yourself, I decided to give it a whirl. Today when I Googled myself I got some interesting results:
- www.eastmaui.com - my own site was ranked first (Phew!)
- eastmaui.com/ghunter.html - my own profile page
- Twitter.com/mauihunter - (down for maintenance)
- ActiveRain profile for Georgina M. Hunter
- plaxo.com profile - funny, I just joined that less than 2 months ago
- zillow.com profile - one of them anyway - I think have 2 profiles and it's a big mess, don't get me started on that
- www.mauihunter.com - another of my own sites
- Twellow.com - what the heck is this? Did I sign up for that too?
- localism.com - OK, glad to see this is moving up the ranks
- websearch.ramaui.com - my public IDX site - Grand Champions units for sale - don't know how that happened, but it's OK - maybe this area could use some maintenance to increase my SEO
Page 2 was headed up with MyMauiBlog (the AR outside blog) and some of my other sites and finally a link to a FaceBook Gina M. Hunter! Close but not me.
I conclude that Plaxo and Twellow have something going on. What happened to my Trulia profile? I'm surprised that wasn't on the list.
Ideally, only my own sites would be in the top ten, but at least all my profiles will point to my sites. Do your profiles link to your website? It's easy to do so take that extra step and ensure that you can be found by consumers - your site, your email, or your phone number. Because if they can't contact you when they find you on the web, then what's the point?
