If one searches for your name on google, or for that matter any other search engine, does the search result refer to you?

Yup, the search engines do show a number of results refering to me when my name is typed. Maybe, once in my life i had the chance to become a little famous, that's why. It's kinda fun seeing articles or news about yourself in the internet

When doing a search for my name at a national search engine two results refer to me. I tells of a contest I won, and the other refers to a petition I signed.

I've tried it once or twice, but the results that came back were never actually about me, just people with the same name. I don't have a very common name, so I was surprised at the amount of results. I think many of the entries were duplicates, though, so there may not be as many people with my name as it looks at first.

No. If you type your name, it will show the results of your first name and your last name separately.

It does actually, and on the first page as well. There are several professional people who share my name but I'm up there giving a testimonial to a company for some thermal wool underwear I purchased for my Dad...lol. Surprisingly my blog doesn't come up. I wonder if my username will give any results?

I did once and I find it fascinating and weird at the same time. It's like finding an old book and then when you flip through it you find the little notes you write while pretending to listen to your teachers.

It's called "ego-surfing"to search the engines for yourself and see what comes up. Yeah, my name does come up. But I share a name with an apparently talented collegiate field hockey player. So she comes up first, and has pages of game reports, stats and scores. That's fine by me. If you search my maiden name, you usually come up with someone who works for the government as well as old posts about me. I used to publish white papers at a previous job of mine, so my maiden name comes up commonly for the papers and patent I have published.

I am a member of a charity organisation, that some friends of mine and I founded. My name is listed on their members list of the website of the organization, that is why my name is displayed.

Once i did so but there was no result of it and i wished to see exact results of my real name. I did a bit online works & made websites & released press conference about it. Now, when i write "Khushbu Malik". The topest result is exactly related to me. It shows more than 1 results related to me sometimes but not showing my press conference now-a-days but "khushboo Malik" is not my name.

Yes if I use my real name because I've written a lot of articles which feature on various websites. I've never had any personal information or anything like that come up about me though - I think that would freak me out a little!

I have tried it a few times. The search results never pertain to me. They are usually about the actress with my same first name.

Yes, I've tried searching my screen name before, and it did come up with a few things. It came up with a lot of other stuff that wasn't me at all, but it did come up with some of my discussions from different websites also!
