Are you famous enough?
PeopleRankPageRank (Google), TrustRank (Yahoo) and now PeopleRank (WebMii). PeopleRank or public information about you is no more a vanity. People don’t search for their own information on the web just for the sake of it anymore, the whole idea is to find out how much popular he/she is on the World Wide Web. The resultant factor is to get a brand name for you. WebMii conglomerates data from Google, Facebook, Twitter, Bing, Yahoo Search and other search engine to provide you with a picture of your image on the internet. However, there are some restrictions. They have country specific searches like USA, France, Spain, Belgium, Switzerland, United Kingdom and International as a category.
Public Profile Results Page (PPRS) as coined by me is something that have evolved over the time and I am sure people will be going crazy over this just like they did the same for twitter.
The PPRS have lots of sections namely Tags, Photos (powered by Facebook, Bing), Email, Facebook Profile, Hi5 Profile, Twitter, MySpace, Websites (powered by Yahoo) and Blogs (powered by Google) which contributes to the overall PeopleRank.
The time factor shown up in the right hand side can be assumed as being proud to conglomerate the data in such a short time.
Looks Good right!
Now, give a hawk eyes to the way the data is being manipulated. Let’s take an example. You have a low PeopleRank and now as you have come across this term you want to work on it. Here are few tips to improve it.
1. Increase you Facebook interaction
2. Name your images and upload as many variations as you want.
3. Tags even though powered by Google, I believe they involve Tagged info as well.
4. Make good use of your friends and connections at LinkedIn
5. If you have a blog it’s all the more advantageous to build your brand.
