Get Your Google Profile Tidied Up

Google Profile Earlier, I Googled the local gyms in my town. I found the place I wanted, and just before I made the phone call, I realized that Google had something that said “write a review.” I did, and immediately after submitting it, there was suddenly a little review, with a “chrisbrogan.com” prominently displayed beside it. When I clicked the link, it went to my Google Profile. Whoa, I thought. Matrix “whoa.” Because, hey, that’s like, free advertising. Non?

You can find your profile here

But I tell you what: I’d get that profile really pretty, and I’d start thinking strategically about which Google results you might want to seed with your own perspective. Now, this might only work on Google “Local” searches, which is what I did, but hey. If that’s a starting point, it might roll out everywhere. And if that’s the case, again, allow me to “whoa.” Because that means my contact info and bio is on every review that someone *might* see every time they Google.

I’ll take some, thanks.

What say you?

    I feel behind the curve on this one as I just recently created my Google profile:

    http://www.google.com/s2/profiles/103432387018018735098

    I agree that this is a great marketing opportunity for people who understand the direction that the Internet in general, and Google in particular, are heading. And Chris, the pirate, is leading the way into these uncharted waters. Thanks for the great tip.

    Chris,

    3 things that are way powerful:

    Google Friend Connect in full release on YouTube.

    The new events widget that Google just released. Real slick, think webinars and BlogTalkRadio or better live local MeetUps.

    AND Google does not want to be a social site, they are a browser OS and I have been running it for 6 months. I just generated 30,000 YouTube views using my GFC contacts.

    All on my site, check it out, I would like to know what you think….

    Chris, it has finally dawned on me how brilliant Google is at integrating all their pieces. With the recent launch of Buzz, I'm exploring how the Google profile will become even more useful in promoting my work.

    I didn't know about the review thing you mentioned, but I like it that participating in Google's user community benefits me in more ways than the simple joys I get from using their tools.

    One potentially harmful thing about Google profiles I noticed is that they don't encode email addresses. Not to be too hypersensitive, but since they're just listed as mailto: links they are easily harvested by spambots. Other than that, this is a great idea, thanks Chris!
