    Default Can you Google yourself?

    How many of you can find a link to (any) one of your posts online by typing in your username, either here or elsewhere, in the Google search box? In less than 5 minutes I've easily found several posts by myself (but none from here) and also Pip: Wayne's Hotclubbing site has a link, but as for Ralph...all I've found so far is this...
    Warm and sincere, dignified, or edgy
    ...and this certainly ain't our Ralph!


    Who else can Google themselves?

    If I google myself I get, for some reason, a link to a thread called "Si Hunt Probes Your Dental Hygene". Don't remember that one, but it sounds like something I might have written.

    My links usually refer to years old reviews on the Doctor Who Ratings Guide

    I've just got my handcuffs and my truncheon and that's enough.

    Actually it was quite intersting to see what it turned up. I appear in several rather unexpected places, and rather worrying ones some of them. I'm a bit concerned at how widely my blog seems to appear- linked to places I wouldn't expect at all. Perhaps I'm just naive?

    It used to be a handy way to find all my old posts on www.werewolf.com

    I miss that site, and regularly being called a stupid ****tard by the admins. No wonder OG felt like home.

    My name's all over the place, not that happy with it to be honest but that's the nature of the beast.

    Although the link at the top of my list is me, a lot of them are for a bunch of yanks with my name. (I did an online search of what was supposedly the electoral roll, and according to it I'm the only Ashley Culley in the United Kingdom!)

    However, this page was on the list and has my name down as the page designer... I swear this isn't me, I'd never have let such a lousy web page design have my name on it!

    Although I feel very much surprised that one of the results was from PS... :O

    You'll find it difficult to find mention of me anywhere. There are lots of imitations though.

    Thought I'd share these two descriptions which hail from the first page of Google according to my PS user name, as they both made me smile!

    We once Googled TheArtist's real name and, aside from a film review he'd once penned, the other entry was on a site titled "Best anal sex for Italian Men".
    Dennis, Francois, Melba and Smasher are competing to see who can wine and dine Lola Whitecastle and win the contract to write her memoirs. Can Dennis learn how to be charming? Can Francois concentrate on anything else when food is on the table? Will Smasher keep his temper under control?

    If only the 28th century didn't keep popping up to get in Dennis's way...

    Jon Masters is an Embedded Systems programmer working on Embedded Linux for realtime scientific instrumentation.
    With the vast majority of links relating to this, I seem to be one hell of a dull git.

    Using my 'handle', it's pretty much all about the convention in Boston that I used the name of for my handle.

    Using my real name, there's a couple website mentions, mostly connected to the convention in Boston, then it moves on to 'dings' referring to car body damage or similar.

    Ignore the guitars, the performance fly rods, and the laminate flooring in Bristol. According to Google, I've got a mighty organ.

    Okay, it's not really me, just as neither the famous ice hockey coach nor that geezer who writes the books about Led Zep are me, either. In fact, after twenty pages of solid Googling, I have yet to find myself, although I have found plenty of new Dave Lewis's that weren't populating the net last time I tried this.

    One is a 'void engineer'...

    The last time i googled myself I put my back out.

    All Ive managed to find, after wading through pages and pages, is here. Google must have impeccable taste.

    Apart from the 20th-century American experimental composer and pianist David Tudor, all the other Dave Tudors out there sound really dull (leave it!), being engineers and business men and what-have-you. I found a particularly boring-sounding article on 'The fine art of turnkey manufacturing' written by a Dave Tudor (yawn!).

    Rather disappointingly, I have also found that putting 'Google' into Google, doesn't actually break the internet.

    My name comes up quite a lot, but it's hardley ever actually me. There's a banjo player with my name (my God it's everyones worst nightmare). There's also some bloke going on about porn - it's not me honest!!!!

    If you put my name in Google images - sometimes pictures of me playing in the jazz band on various gigs appear - thanks to some weird bloke who writes about jazz bands that he sees regularily in his blogg.

    My username, googled, comes up with the biography of the actor James Fox, who was in the BBCi remake of Shada and some film called Pavlova.

    Stands to reason, really.

    I can see why you prefer Shada Pavlova.
