Personal Branding in Google: A Person’s Google Results

27th August 2012

It’s the ‘ego-search’ everybody does and nobody admits they do: a search for your own name. Do it and you will find which sites mention you, but mostly you will find your social media accounts. For your personal branding, whether it is for finding a job or just becoming famous in your industry, you would want that first page in Google to look good when it comes to what results show.
