Google Profiles Now Shown with Name Search

Apr 24, 2009

Google announced that users will now have greater control over what people find when they search for their name. Google has begun to show Google profile results at the bottom of U.S. name-query search pages. These results offer abbreviated information from user-created Google profiles and a link to the full profiles. With Google profile, users can create a public profile that represents them and that appears when people search for their name on Google. The initial signal for which profiles will be shown (4 at a time, with a "more" button) will be based on completeness of the Google Profile.
