Google Profiles – Simple, Summarized and Searchable

Google announced yesterday that Profiles now appear in name search results at the bottom of the page. For me, at least, this is fantastic news. Since I share the name of an NBA player, getting my sites to appear on the first result page of a search on “Ryan Bowen” has been all but impossible.

As soon as I heard the news, I googled my name.  I was very pleased to see my Google Profile and picture on the first page.

If you haven’t yet created your Google Profile, I’d suggest it.  It’s pretty straightforward – like a simplified Facebook, where you can add services (like Flickr streams) and links to your social networks.
