Googling Your Own Name
Has anyone ever Googled themselves? For the past 2 months, I have been working on trying to rank #1 in Google for my name, Justin Wright. The problem is, there are way too many Justin Wrights out there in the World. I guess I was blessed with a really common name (damn it).
Back in the beginning of August, I first noticed that my name was on the 20th page in Google. Not too good if you ask me. Especially since I blog a lot and have more accounts on social networks than anyone would ever need.
Guess Where I Am Today?
I did a search today and was surprised to see the results. Check out this image I snapped of a Google search I did:
#10 in Google
There I am, squeezing in on the first page at the #10 spot. Not too bad for two months of work. Now if I could just get to the #1 spot I could be done with it.
Will It Help?
When I first thought about ranking #1 for my name, I figured it would be an easy way for people to find me. However, I did some research in Google Adwords and found out some pretty surprising results. The average search volume every month for Justin Wright is around 8,100. Not too shabby…
I’m pretty sure there looking for other Justin Wrights, ones that are actually famous and what not. But hey, I will never give up…never!
So if your bored one day and have nothing to write about, I would suggest you write a post about me too help me out (just kidding, but not really).
So the question is, where are you in Google?
