In his post “The first thing to do this year“, Seth Godin suggests Googling yourself:
If you’re a salesperson, your prospects already do.
If you’re looking for a job, your prospective employers already do.
If you’ve got a job, your co-workers already do.
Seth’s right, you can improve your appearance and “be finished by tonight.” Here are fast ways to spruce up your Google appearance:
- Get LinkedIn. It’s social networking for your resume and highly ranked in Google.
- Rate something on Amazon and complete your profile.
- Leave comments on blogs. Highly-read blogs usually rate high on Google.
- Do all of the above using the name folks are likely to Google.
What do you get when you Google yourself?
