How to be Found on Google
Add Me to Search – How to be found on Google using the new people cards by Google
Do you want to be found on Google when your name is searched?
You can create your own virtual Google card and be found on Google by anyone using the new “People Cards” by Google. This is designed for business professionals, performers, influencers, entrepreneurs, job hunters, freelancers, or anyone looking to grow their presence online.
Google’s new People Cards allow individuals to link to their website, social profiles, and other relevant pages all from one place.
In a limited launch, Google is testing virtual business cards in search results that show up when a person’s name is searched for.
Google’s new peoples card let individuals highlight themselves in search results like never before.
Gaining a presence in search results as an individual can prove to be challenging, especially for those who aren’t famous or share the same name with many other people.
For searchers, it can be challenging to find information about specific people if they don’t have a strong online presence.
Google aims to address these challenges with people cards:
HOW DO YOU CREATE YOUR PEOPLES CARD? FOLLOW THE STEPS BELOW
Before you start this, make sure you’re logged into the email address you want to use on your mobile and this should be done on your mobile phone. Once that is set, you can then proceed to the steps below.
Click on the Get Started button to begin creating your card.
Fill out your information. Click the button to get started. You’ll see the following screen:
Fill out the required fields which are:
Below the required fields you’ll see a section of additional information you can include if you want to.
The fields shown in the screenshot below are all optional. You add as many or as few as you wish.
Google will let you add links to the following social profiles:
For the most part you will be able to enter all information manually. There are two exceptions… email and phone number.
Google automatically populates the email and phone number fields with the information in your Google account. You can’t change the email or phone number on your people card without changing it in your Google account.
Of course, you could choose to not display those fields at all if you’d prefer not to reveal your personal email or phone number.
After you fill out the fields in step 2, the only thing left to do is preview the card before it goes live.
Once you’re satisfied with how your card looks, save it and it will be indexed in search results.
To see what it looks like in search results after it goes live just look up your name.
That’s all there is to it.

Do you share same business name with another business and theirs appears on Google search instead of your own and you want to change that?
I can help you take your own business name to the top.
For example.. you have a business name with the name Tee Shop and there are other businesses with same name and when people search on Google, their information appears first without yours anywhere to be found…
