So I get about, yeah. I’m here, I’m there. I’m like a bad rash on a fat man .. I’m everywhere, dude! Or so I thought…
This morning saw a summary execution of my ambitions of world domination from the comfort of my ‘blog.
How this character assignation was achieved was pretty interesting, though.
I paid a visit to EgoSurf, who calculate your ‘ego ranking’ on Google. Once the calculation is complete, you see a graphical fuel gauge with the needle indicating your position.
Needless to say, I was running on empty.
But out of this fun is a serious little tool that could be put to effective use, tracking back-links and quickly figuring out where you, someone else or a keyword / key phrase and your ‘blogs and websites stand in the grand scheme of things.
An interesting at-a-glance tool for anyone wanting to manage their Personal Brand, to help find the venues where you rank best and enhance them.
The accuracy with which people are suggested in my Network is impressive. And while the forums aren’t quite fully-fledged fora, for finding insight, inspiration, ideas and initiating conversations, I can’t complain.
Also quite recently, I got interviewed via email by Halil at Peopleized, offering some insight into myself for those not on speaking terms with me.
Nothing like a little free exposure, is there? And it’s Personal Branding thing again, isn’t it?
One tip for Halil would be to use the name of the interviewee in the URL to the actual article, which would work wonders on the world wide web and provide some suitably special search engine stickiness, too.
