Googling Yourself

It’s called Ego Surfing, or Googling yourself, it’s the act of typing your name in Google Search and seeing what appears on the webpage. Now there’s a firm that has compiled 25 million web profiles of people and are offering them the chance to change what your web profile reveals about you. Well, it’s not exactly that simple.

ZoomInfo can’t erase information on the Internet, or stop searches on Google from turning up incorrect or unflattering data. But since search engines display the most relevant results first, a well-constructed ZoomInfo profile would theoretically be the first or among the first choices that appear in search results. Try it out for yourself and see what the Internet has to say about you.
