Have you ever Googled yourself? What happens when you do? Are you on the front page? What are you doing to get there? If your nowhere on the site do you think that matters?
Don’t think it’s bragging if you do this because it’s all about measuring what you’re doing and what is working. I know it has helped me tremendously understand how to be effective online.
Two years ago I googled Chris Yates Dallas and had only 1 mention on the front page of Google.
I shifted my focus to marketing my company and brand online and the results have been interesting. When I google Chris Yates Dallas there are 11 articles on the first page of Google and every one of them is about me and our company.
Don’t feel odd about Googling yourself. You should feel worse if your name is all over the front page and it’s NOT YOU.
