Do You Google Well?

More frequently, businesses are using Google as their main source of information. From potential clients to competition, the search for data is heating up and getting personal.

For some businesses, they are using it to find detailed information about you during the interview process. Information available from such sources as blogs to MySpace and Facebook. This new trend is catching online users off guard because of the potential of losing a job based on what’s contained on their blog or what friends they have on Myspace.

In fact, it’s now getting to baby names where parents will give their child a name that can’t be found in Google; making the assertion that you’re nobody unless you can be found on Google.
