Who is googling you?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
This is an interesting article about how anyone can be found on the internet:

That's interesting, but i don't think i'd go to those lengths to find out who it was unless i was having stalking issues?.

I've googled myself, and the only things that came up were articles from my daughter's attempted murder 8 years ago this month.

Not worth it for me to join those sites - there isn't much out there for anyone to find on me. I've also removed my phone number from the reverse lookups, so it's even harder to find me online.

If anyone was truly serious about stalking someone online they'd just use encryption and proxies... There's a way around everything.

I've googled myself and all I found was a blog that a friend of mine did when I got engaged. I tried it all kinds of ways. I guess I"m a nobody.

I googled myself and all that came up was a tribute I wrote on another site for Midnight. What I don't like are all of those "people finder" sites that help you find out details about people.

There are way too many of "me", regardless of whether I use my full name or nickname. People would have to add a lot of details to narrow things down.

I didnt find anything on me

I googled my name and I found out all sorts of interesting things about me. Apparently I have a discography. Also, I was born in 1651 in France and moved to New France at the age of 18.
I was also born in 1599 and in 1667.
I'm also a painter.

I think I'm all set for a multiple personality disorder.

But seriously, my name and address are in the phone book. I don't see who would want to look me up though. Unless they were REALLY bored.

Luckily, my name isn't particularly uncommon, and I don't use my last name anywhere but Facebook and my e-mail/shopping (like Target and Amazon, not no-name ones)

I share a name with some semi-famous people, so they get a bunch of results before I would anyway.

My name is also part of a color, so mostly people are going to get clothing sites.

Thats how I felt about mine!!!!

Mind you, that's with my married name.. when I googled my maiden name, a site came up from my high school that has pics from our senior noteables posted there!!! SCARY!! (The pic, that is)

Ok, I went back and re-googled myself (has been awhile), and on page 4, there IS one very important link to an article that I wrote (with a LOT of editing help from hissy) on Himalayan cats for TCS!!!
post #16 of 21
My name brings up online fiction, rpg sites and a teenage boxer. But only after about 3 pages of lj, diaryland and facebook references. Sometimes I wish I didn't belong to the internet generation....
No personal details though, and most of the websites are out of date and haven't been looked at for several years.

You know its last isn't that common, but oh-boy, there are plenty of people that share my name: One in Canada, one in PA, and (funny enough) one here in NJ...except it isn't me!!

Anyhoo, OK I guess I'll stop googling others...

I didn't find anything on me. Which really, is a good thing.

The strangest thing came up when I googled my name...

Someones facebook link came up who I am friends with and it was STARRYEYEDTIGERS facebook profile link!?!?

Why the heck would hers come up out of all the facebook friends I have!?!?

I'm apparently a looser, nothing came up!

Google your username for a site and you'll see your posts show up. If you use your real name for a site and google your name,. that site will show up.

I used to know a site where you type in someones address and you can get there phone # for free and residents names.
