Admit it; we all have searched for our names on google and hopes to see some information about us (yes, visiting the 10th page was also not trying this time).
But thanks to Google you can search your self and feel appreciated,Google launched a new feature named Add me to search, which allows people to link our websites and social media handles to one place and create a virtual visiting card. The easiest and fastest way to gain the presence in the google is by typing “Add me to search” in the query. The only requirement is of a mobile device with a good access to the network and also a personal google account.People card is similar to a virtual business card which can show up in google when your name is searched. We can add ourselves to google Search and will be easier for others to find us .
Here’s how you can add yourself to Google search by creating a virtual visiting card.
– Search “Add me to search” on google.com on your mobile phone. (Google has not made this feature available to access through desktop yet.)
– Click on the “Get Started” icon in search results.
Step 3 –
Provide your mobile number and get it verified by submitting OTP received on your provided mobile number in the next step
If your phone number is already verified, you will directly reach the form.
– Fill the simple details . For example, your name, location or the city/ district/ village where you live, your occupation, and fill some details which define you in the about section and your phone number in phone number section.
