How to Write Your Biography on Google

Having your biography published on Google is easier than you might think. Writing your own biography is called an autobiography. When someone else writes your life story, it's a biography. So technically, any biography you write about yourself would be an autobiography, not a biography. Technicalities aside, having your biography picked up by Google will give you worldwide exposure.

Step

Begin by writing your life story in your word processing program. Web readers like short paragraphs, so make sure that each of your paragraphs has between 100 and 200 words for easy readability.

Step

Compile pictures into a folder and name them appropriately. "Jimsfirsttooth.jpg" is a more descriptive--and therefore better--name than "img-27.jpg."

Step

Publish your biography on one of the many available self-publishing websites such as Google Knols or bukisa.com (see Resources).

Step

Create an account on Google-owned blogspot.com. Here you can customize your layout and graphics more so than on other sites (see Resources).

Step

Submit the URL (Web address) to the Google search engine. You might also want to submit it to the DMOZ biography section, because when people visit the Google Biography reference, it shows DMOZ results (see Resources).

Step

Wait a few days for your page to be "crawled" by the search engines, then search for your name on Google. If you highlight a few specific sentences in your article and use the "copy" and "paste" function to paste it into the search engine for an exact quote, you'll probably find yourself right at the top of the Google results.
