Manage your online reputation
Nowadays, more and more personal information surfaces on the web. For example, some of your friends might mention your name in a social network or tag you on online photos, or your name could appear in blog posts or articles.
Google search is often the first place people look for information that's published about you. Here are a few ways to manage your online reputation and help control what people see when they search for you on Google:
Search for your name on Google to see what information about you comes up.
With a Google profile, you can manage the information—such as your bio, contact details, and other information about you—that people see.
If you find content online—say, your telephone number or an inappropriate photo of you—that you don't want to appear online, first determine whether you or someone else controls the content. If the unwanted content resides on a site or page you don't control, you can follow our tips on removing personal information from Google.
