Google Profiles: Another Profile, Another SEO Opportunity

googleprofile2Have you seen your Google Profile yet? Visit http://google.com/profiles/me and get started, then!

Google Profiles might be a stealth attempt at building a social network in the shadow of FaceBook’s dominance. The profile isn’t as feature rich or complex as FaceBook … yet … but does offer an opportunity to post a photo, contact information, and links to other sites.

And regardless of where Google plans to take this function, they have already added Profiles to the Google search results, making Profiles an important element in your search engine optimization plan. 

You get to customize the URL, so claim yours early before your namesake beats you to it like he did with that .com domain you never got around to registering.
