Being the blatant self publicist that I am, I was very interested to learn of Google’s new profile maker when you have a Google account. You can enter profile information for yourself, places you’ve lived at, companies you’ve worked for and such like.
Why is this important? Well, you can create links to your own websites, websites that you like or even pages such as your Facebook or LinkedIn pages. These links are hosted on the Google domain, which could well have some bearing on your SEO. Also, by creating your own profile page you’re helping with your own personal reputation management, as the pages are indexible, and will rank for your own name in the SERPs.
Whether you’re an outrageous self publicist, or just someone interested in SEO, it’s worth checking out the Google profile maker.
