Nowadays it is just plain irresponsible to be passive about your Google results.
Patrick Ambron few months ago started Make Search Engines Your B**ch series where he wrote:
¨Today, Google is the first place we turn to learn more about another person. To put this in perspective, there are 3 billion searches a day on Google and 77% of job recruiters are required to do a Google pre-screen before hiring you. So in short, if you haven’t Googled yourself, somebody has.
It’s your responsibility to ensure you make the best impression possible when that person searches you. Obviously you want to avoid negative content, but just as importantly, if you aren’t represented by well-branded, positive content, you are missing out on an important opportunity to make a lasting first impression.¨
So here I am. Bought a domain with my name, chose among WordPress Themes and the same afternoon kicked off this blog.
Nice to meet you!
