Breakdown of a Persons Google Results Page (INFOGRAPHIC)

Originally published as Breakdown of a Persons Google Results on Technorati.

Every day there are 1 billion names searched in Google – 94% of those searching don’t look past the first page.

Brand Youself, a company aimed at helping individuals put their best links forward so to speak, when Googled, released a pretty useful infographic today. What it shows, from mining their own 130,000 strong user base, is the top sites you should have profiles on, that show up the most in Google search engine results pages (SERP’s), and therefore can help most with reputation management.

Some intersting tidbits:

  • LinkedIn performed the best overall, appearing at the #3 position for average name searches on Google.
  • For video sites, Vimeo actually performed better than YouTube.
  • Photo sharing sites fail in general, with Flickr the only one appearing at all.
  • For self-hosting blogs, WordPress dominates Blogger and Tumblr, at least for ranking in searches for peoples names.
