Posted:I've been a bit bored, and have been fooling around with Google . I tried my name, and got to the first 500 without seeing 'me' me.
I am however, apparently, a real estate agent, a blues singer, a personal trainer, a women's soccer player, and several dead people.
Anyway. In the spirit of getting to know everyone, here's a little activity for ya. As you know, Google's 'I'm Feeling Lucky' button takes the searcher to the first page resulting from the search.
Feel free to share the search string which Google's 'I'm Feeling Lucky" takes directly to -you- (a page created by you at some point, or a page with somebody referencing you). Of course, it'd be way too easy to do:
ry home of poi
..because that would take us all back here, wouldn't it? Tell us something we don't know!
Tips, try working backwards. Google yourself normally til you find something you know you're in (e.g. your name, a hobby, a username, or a combination). When you find yourself as an entry, not necessarily the first, try to refine the search string by adding a word that your page has that the first page doesn't. All just a bit of trial and error.
Of course, it may be a bit harder if you're a John Smith or Jane Doe who likes cars, stamps and eBay- than if you're the only Pointdexter Bartholomew in the world who chairs the Purple Horseshoe Throwing Association of Bolivia. See how you go.
