Who are you ? Are you on About.me ?

Share

Several years ago I was a member of a UK based networking site and when people asked about me I simply gave them a link to my profile page on the site Unfortunately that website no longer exists and so my search has been for a new home for my profile.

The key to the continued success of my next profile site About.me is that it is ranked by Alexa in the top 1500 sites globally , this means traffic levels which are far ahead of other social profile sites. Your task is to make your profile highly visible on the site , which is far easier than promoting your own blog site.

There are resources on site to help you , a thriving support community and a very large friendly group of site members . Enrolling is both easy and free. You can see my About.me profile here .

About me is the

second of the sites where you can store all your online presences

Interaction

About.me is more than just a static page to store your pages.

There is interaction – lots of it … you can track all your connections , make new connections.

You can see who has viewed your profile if they are on about.me and of course return the favour.

Statistics

About.me tracks the visits to your profile . You can see that until September 2013 there was little activity .

I decided to link all of my major online presences (Facebook , Twitter,LinkedIn) to my about.me account . The results were a major increase in traffic .

As you control what shows on your profile it really is a great , cost free way to market yourself and your services and products.

Attracting traffic to your website is an ongoing battle , the difference with about me is that the site is not just about you , it is about everyone . You can get greater consistent traction by promoting your about.me page

  • Steven, About.me is pretty neat. I established my page a few years ago and your post has reminded me to update it! Thanks! Terri
