    how googleable are you?

    Anyone else keep tabs on their name via google? I do, I never quite know when I might be job-hunting, or a job might be hunting me, so I like to know what is out there. I keep an eye on Google, MSN, and a couple other biggies.

    Mostly, my work, my blog, my work blog, LinkedIn, etc. come up along with a few people that are not me.

    However, just in:
    I am [not] pleased to announce that some very great quotes from a friend's website now appear in the top 5 listings:
    • "I wonder if sperm get drunk"
    • "All I wanted to do was [blank] you, Kate." (which sounds dirty, but its about a card game)

    And if you click on one of those links you get a myrad of others:
    • ”Why are your nuts on my ass?” (referring to a can of honey roasted nuts)
    • ”Are you ready? This is going to be ORGASMIC” (Washing my friend's hair with herbal essences after dying it)


    Yowzer. I think something needs to be done about that.

    So, what comes up when you google your name?

    I share my name with a programmer. The programmer is know for games like Miner 2049er. Among other things... Spider-Man. So good luck finding stuff on me.

    Since I'm in the computer industry, should I put a disclaimer on my resume ? "Not THAT Mike..."

    I posted this a couple of weeks ago in the "employer asked for myspace page" thread:

    I googled myself to see what a potential employer might find. Here are just a few of the things I learned about myself:

    I'm a professional musician, not big but there are a lot of web sites that mention me. I have clothing (including thongs!) with my logo you can buy at CafePress.

    I have numerous entries at Facebook, LinkedIn, Classmates, MySpace, etc.

    I'm the victim of a drive-by shooting. (I died).

    I have a web page with pictures using Play-Doh to depict very disturbing scenes, using a fake knife and fake blood (or are they?).

    I'm an MMA fighter! Unfortunately my record is 0-1.

    I worked for the DMV and died in a car accident.

    I'm an RN. (That doesn't sound right.)

    I'm the victim of an unsolved murder.

    Apparently I've lived and died many lives. I went through 20 pages of me, and not a single entry was actually me (well, except being the victim of an unsolved murder, but that's in the future). I am anonymous.

    I'm 41, and my father (same name) has more hits than me. I have a few here and there. Mostly aviation related and computing stuff where I don't mind if people know my real name.

    I like it that way. The last thing I need is a prospective employer finding my Modern Drunkard Magazine account.

    I have a pretty uncommon name, Darwin is actually my first name, with a relatiuvely common last name.

    There are a few of us out there.

    For the few with the same name out there, how anyone can figure out which of them would be me is a mystery, since some of them that are me, are me in a "previous life" in which I held beliefs I no longer hold to...

    I have a psychological makeup that leads me to be a bit of a chameleon.

    Apparently I'm a V.P. of Stategic (his spelling, not mine) Sales at CBS Radio. Glad he's not in the print media.
    It all comes down to financing.

    First and last name, there appear to be three of us who share that combo (that ain't dead).
    First name, middle initials, last name, and I'm the only one.

    Ah, Miner 2049er used to be my favorite game in the whole world back when I played video games!!

    I Google my name sometimes and have never come up with anything, ever. I didn't realize I was such an oddity in that regard!

    We Google each other at work sometimes but we find interesting (and highly inappropriate) things, so we stop doing it regularly.

    When I used to have a 'blog, I could track what terms people Googled to find my 'blog. The weirdest hit was someone who searched: "Mary Kate and Ashley Olson topless in bikinis." That search entry resulted in my 'blog being the first hit. And I have no idea why! The only terms I ever used out of that whole sentence were "and" and "in."
