Google Profiles are here – well almost.

Recently launched,  Google Profiles are like online interactive business cards letting you share your details with other Google users. With a Google profile, you can easily bring together your web content and social networking links  into one central location. You can set up your profile to include, links to your blog, online photos, and other profiles such as Facebook, LinkedIn, and more. It’s not perfect, but the big plus is if  someone is searching on Google for you by name, your linked details will appear at the bottom of the Google Search page, complete with a thumbnail picture of you.

Once clicked, they get taken to your full profile – see below

So, why do I say that Google Profiles are almost here?

Although more than 700  Kiwi businesses and people already have their profiles on Google, as of today they still can’t be directly accessed from http://www.google.co.nz, our default Google page.

Apparently, Google Profiles will be coming to New Zealanders soon but in the meantime, if you can’t wait to set up your own Google profile you can always go here and do it.
