The Importance of Google Profiles

Get a Google Profile.

It’s a powerful business tool for reaching a broader audience, conveniently placing all your web presences in one place. Think of it as an online business card for when people search your name.

Your Google profile is a public identity, linking interested searchers to all the social networking and business related web sites that you want the public to know about.

Your profile is your “brand” and will appear prominently in the search results once it’s indexed. Buzz, Blogger, Picasa, Flickr, WordPress, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Scribd, LinkedIn and all the many other sites that you are involved in, can all be included in your profile. You get to pick which ones get linked and which ones don’t get mentioned.

New York Web Design puts it well: “It’s like placing your digital calling card in the world’s largest Rolodex.”
