Googling my own name

I'm so excited, I'm finally ranked on my own name in Google on the first page. It's no longer some random people I've never heard of. "Paul Zhao" is currently at the bottom of the first page of the Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs). It's a post from an SEO group I participate in. I don't know how long my name will be ranked as the post gets "old", but let's just keep our fingers crossed and hope I stay in the first page. :)

Dude, you suck!
Google Search
I'm the first, second, third, and last on that page.

And you call yourself a Search Engine Optimizer!

That's true, but I've only started getting my name out 5 days ago. My blog isn't even indexed (recognized of existance) by any search engines yet. "Andrew Simmering" without quotes return 314k results in Google, "Paul Zhao" returns 2,740k results. With quotes, you got 16 results to compete with (with some of them being yours), and I got 913.

So there. j/k :)

I do that too, unfortunately there is a damn Welsh business man named Evan Roberts who is apparently pretty famous...I'll move past his dead ass soon though :)

Dude, Ev, how do you let some Welsh guy beat you on your name? Especially since you got an URL named "evankroberts.com"? Come on, I thought you were good. What happened?

Crap, my post in the SEO forum slipped to 2nd page in Google, but Evan's post about me is ranking 2nd in the first page. :) You da man, Ev

Ev, we should g-bomb Paul. How about "ballerina basketball player"?

Thomas, don't be jealous just cuz I got enough ups to be able to twirl in the air while taking a 360 layup or got enough coordination to do a cartwheel while chucking the ball in the basket
