Google Profiles - Great for Reputation and SEO

Have you seen Google Profiles yet? If not, go set up you profile at http://www.google.com/profiles/

It's no secret that from time to time many of us have searched on Google for our name or someone else's. When searching for yourself to see what others would find, results can be varied and aren't always what you want people to see — whether it's someone else with your name, or the finishing time from that 5K you ran back in 2002. We want to make that better and give you more of a voice.

To give you greater control over what people find when they search for your name, we've begun to show Google profile results at the bottom of U.S. name-query search pages. These results offer abbreviated information from user-created Google profiles and a link to the full profiles. We've also added links so it's easy to search for the same name on MySpace, Facebook, Classmates and LinkedIn.

Google PageRank Update for March 2009

The latest Google PageRank (PR) update is around the corner or it is just a rumor. Over the weekend, there are tons and tons of threads in several forums with webmasters and SEOs complaining that their PageRank score in the Google Toolbar took a dive. There are hot threads at DigitalPoint Forums and Google Webmaster Help talking about the ongoing Google PR updates. One thing for sure is that a lot of people are not happy with the new PageRank score they received.

Lots of SEO's (Search Engine Optimizers) have sworn off checking Pagerank and waiting around for updates, but I think we all know that these updates are still very interesting, and the numbers are still a very important part of SEO.

They can give us a peek at what kind of progress we are making with our SEO campaigns in Google, THE most important Search Engine for SEO, since a high ranking in Google is much more valuable than all of the other search engines combined.

Google PageRank (PR) and Back Links (BL) was last updated on 10th January 2009. This time no importance for Reciprocal link Building, sites Page Rank is changed. I think Google changed algorithm again.
