Sometimes people question the benefits of belonging to multiple social networks and building out all those detailed profiles on each.
I don’t know that I want to use this post to try to convince you on all the long-term merits of doing so as to simply point this out and let you draw some of your own conclusions.
Google my name – John Jantsch and you will find some of my various websites (good), some interviews I’ve done on other sites, and, as of this writing – my profile on LinkedIn, Business Week Exchange, and Facebook – all on page one of the Google results.
So, what does that mean? Well, this value could be debated by some, but from a pure reputation management standpoint, I own the content on those profiles, so that could be good thing.
So, what do you find when you search your name?
