Was doing a little self-Googling today, and noticed the following:
- Googling “Jeremy Toeman” (results) has this blog first, followed by a variety of stuff related to me in some way or another.
- Googling “Toeman” (results) gets my actress relative Claire first (darn IMDB), followed by me, and then my great-aunt Zerka later in the page. If I do “Toeman -claire” (results) it’s mostly me
- Googling “Jeremy” (results) gets, well, everyone but me. Amazingly (to me), Jeremy Zawodny’s blog ranks higher than actor Jeremy Irons and porn star Ron Jeremy. Then there’s a few other famous and not-so-famous people. But nowhere in the first ten pages do I show up.
I don’t think I can pull off the same thing as Robert Scoble has (google Robert, he’s first!), but I am a bit surprised I’m not even in the first page.
Hopefully this post will help that. I’ve learned a lot over the past few years about getting into the top results on Google, and am curious to see the impact of a single post named “Jeremy.”
Interesting post, but I don’t expect you to gain much on Google for one solitary post.
Me neither, but it couldn’t hurt! 🙂
