Not that long ago, if you were fooling around in your Google account settings, you probably noticed the option to create a profile.
This is interesting because it not only lets you add tons of information about yourself, essentially creating a personal web site for you, but it is also crawled and indexed. What does that mean? It means if you set up a Google Profile with your name, it will appear in the search results if you search for your name.
Check out my Google Profile – Lyndsay Blahut to see what I’m talking about.
Why not create a Google Profile for your business? You’ll need to sign up for a Google Account if you don’t already have one. When you select your username, be strategic – it becomes part of the URL for your Google Profile.
Give it a try, and watch the traffic roll in.
