Google Your Name

If you have not recently done so, use one or more of the internet search engines such as Google or Bing and type in your name.  Were you surprised at what your found or did not find?  What about your spouse, children, siblings and friends (and enemies).   Is everything correct or not?   Did you see things that you thought were buried in the past, like old spouses or old names?  Old addresses or phone numbers?

 

Now, what can you do about it?  I don't know.

 

I would not suggest you click on just any web site that has your name in it.  Some are scam factories.  If you are in doubt, search on that web site name and see what is said about them.

 

My kids get more hits than I do.  They make more money than I do, too.  Smiley Happy

We'd all like to think we are one in a million.  With at least six billion people on the planet, that just means that there are at least 6,000 people just like you...

Re: Google Your Name

Luckily my name is common enough that it would take forever to find out anything.  The bad part about having a common name is that my name appeared on a watch list for getting on airplanes after 9/ll.  I never did figure out who the bad guy was but it took a couple years for homeland security to give me an easy way to board a plane.  However, if you include my address with the name you'll find out how much I received from the federal government in the last thousand years.  When Romney said he wouldn't post his income for personal reasons I realized life wasn't meant to be fair.

Re: Google Your Name

I guess I'm more boring that I thought. All I could find was correct statistical information. Maybe more farm stuff than anything else.
