ErinIs…

Search.

Posted on: October 9, 2008

If you Google me are any of the results actually me?

When we hired a new addition to the agency…I immediately ran the candidates names through Facebook, Google and Addictomatic to find about more about them. I won’t divulge the dirt, but it made me think about what online dirt is out there on my name that is not really me.

My name is pretty standard, so I’m not surprised that when I search for myself there are plenty of results and I am not one of them. Addictomatic returns some of my blog posts and tweets, but most of the listings are the other hundreds that share my name.

There is an Erin Norton who makes jewelry, another who works at FPL FiberNet, one who plays collegiate softball, another who designs for Retro Rags Collection and many Facebook profiles that are not me. No police blotter results or major negative press at least not in the first few results pages.

While I’m glad there is nothing bad about me floating around out there, as an online media professional it saddens me a bit that who I am does not rank in Google.
