Google Profile Promotion

April 23, 2009

Today while searching Google to see whether it has yet to correct my redirected WordPress domain (it hasn’t after 90+ days), I found Google promoting its new Google Profile service to me specifically based on my search for my own name.

I was somewhat surprised to see a Google search result page asking me “Are you Tim Cohn?”

Are You Tim Cohn?

I have been seeing the “Show Options” link for sometime but this Google Promotion link was different from the “All results”, “Any time”, “Standard results” and “Standard view” options I have become accustomed to seeing run down the left rail of my search results pages.

Clicking on the Google Promotion link took me to my Google account where I could then edit my profile details.

I haven’t yet had the time to further expand my Google profile.
