---- Google Adds People Profiles to Web Search Results

The offical Google blog is reporting [googleblog.blogspot.com] that Google profiles are now being added to US search results, as well as links to other social networking sites:
To give you greater control over what people find when they search for your name, we've begun to show Google profile results at the bottom of U.S. name-query search pages. These results offer abbreviated information from user-created Google profiles and a link to the full profiles. We've also added links so it's easy to search for the same name on MySpace, Facebook, Classmates and LinkedIn.
Clearly this is a big incentive to sign up for a Google profile, and adds a bit of competition for all the ego-surfers out there ;)
