Promote Yourself with a Google Profile Page - Your Profile Information
(Page 3 of 4 )
Once you begin creating a profile, you’ll notice three tabs at the top of your toolbar: About me, Photos and Contact info. The first tab, About me, offers a very detailed form that asks for information, including your name and photo.
Use the name that most commonly appears on your other Web profiles (MySpace, LinkedIn, etc.). If you’d like to add a picture, do so with the Change photo link. You can also add a short biography, information about what you do and where you live, and interests that help identify you to friends and associates.
Most importantly, you can also add URLs to add to your Google profile. This is where you’ll submit links to your MySpace, Facebook, etc. Be sure to include the full Web address for your specific profile, main blog page or Web home page. Include a name for the link so people know what they’re clicking.
The more you add, the easier you’ll be to find for those who use a Google search to seek you out. Include all your blogs, profiles and Web sites. Google will automatically add icons to each of these links and arrange your profile so that it looks well-organized and attractive. All you have to worry about is the information, so be sure to double-check all your URLs and text.
Once you’ve entered all the About me information, go to the Photos section. Here, you’ll be able to upload pictures directly from your Flickr or Picasa account. Don’t have an active account with either of these sites? You can give Google a URL for the picture you’d like to place. Don’t forget, however, that this photo will be publicly displayed to anyone who accesses your profile.
You can also choose to add contact information, which will only be viewed by those you choose. Once you’ve entered all your information, photos and URLS, you’re ready to click the big blue button you’ll find at the bottom of the page.
