There are several things you can do on your about.me page to improve its placement in search results at Google, Bing and other search engines.
Here are a few you can easily do on your own about.me page:
- Use your full name in your URL
- Put your full name in name field
- Include a bio on your page
- Add tags to your page and make them visible
Use your full name in your URL
This also means you are easily discoverable with internal username searches on about.me.
Put your full name in name field
Similarly, adding your full name to the name field means search engines are again picking up your full name for their search results.
Without at least one of these displaying your name, search engines have no way of knowing that you are the person being searched for.
Include a bio on your page
We display your bio as the description of your page in search results. So, it’s helpful to provide context to people looking for you on Google or Bing.
Add tags to your page and make them visible
Tags are crawled by search engines as well. Show them on your page to ensure they will display for people looking for you. They are a quick and easy snapshot of who you are.
