I'm sure that most of the people reading this blog have googled themselves one time or another. If you haven't, then maybe you should. I'll be honest, I do it and I usually enjoy every second of it. I'm usually the top hit when I search for my full name (Tyler Squire, for those unaware) and yesterday I commanded 10 of the top 11 hits. I'm a little off my game because today I'm only sitting at 8 of the first 10. It changes quite a bit, because web pages that were top hits yesterday are now buried on the third or fourth page.
Even more interesting is my personal moniker tysqui. As far as I could tell, a good 90% or more of the 40 or 50 search results referred back to me. Now I just need to work on not embarrassing myself online - at least not until I get a permanent job right?
So good readers, where do you land in the search results?
- Take care when googling your name because somebody with whom I share a name has a foul-mouthed website...
- When (not if) you do Google your name, be sure to place quotation marks around your name or you will never show up.
