Here’s my card, Google me

Recently, Google and iPrint.com gave away sets of 25 “business” cards to promote Google’s integration of Google Profiles into its search results. According to Matt McGee at SearchEngineLand.com, the card sets were given to the first 10,000 people who requested them.

I assume I made the cut because my profiles.google.com/rexhammock cards showed up today.

This is, of course, yet another example of an online social media idea being promoted with print.*

By the way, my real business card covers a wide swath of my online identity.

*Please, no e-mail. It’s a joke.

  • I got mine too and they didn’t have my profile URL or anything. AND I’m not in the top 10 for my name in the Google search. I threw them away/guess I was too dumb to understand what the cards were going to look like. Wish I’d seen this first and I would have put my gmail username – search that and an actual site with which i’m affiliated appears.

  • I thought the whole point was that a person’s Google Profile shows up in a search for their name — down at the bottom of the page.
