A new poll by monitoring company Trackur reveals that a large number of us Google our own names regularly. They found that nearly 50% of respondants had Google'd their own name in the past 24 hours.

For me, the last time was more than a month ago.

I'm not entirely sure what this tells us... what conclusions should we draw, do you think?

Well the survey was done by a social tracking company, so presumably they asked people that were aware of social tracking. Thus it's probably not all that representative of the wider public Smile

I think most people when they first came on t'interweb googled their own name to see who was the same but perhaps famous. In my case my name with no e on the end and it is one of the actors in Beverley Hills Cops, who has the .Com.

But also I found it was so common as to be embarrassing.

I have since only checked once my new name and according to Google it is there 200K times.

No it isn't that includes all sorts of crap, including ash tone john, which is why you get so many millions of hits for stuff.

And I agree I am not sure what it tells us except that most of us are curious.
