Are You Google Toolbar Suggested?

I couldn’t resist it. I’m a bit vain that I google my name every once in a while. If you’re like me, you can check the Google toolbar if it includes your name in its query suggestions. If you don’t have the toolbar installed, get it from toolbar.google.com. The trick is to slowly type your name and wait for the toolbar to give you suggestions.

See your name in it? Kinda cool right?

    When I saw my name on the toolbar, akala ko suggestion yun. Turned out to be a remembered query. Kasi naman, sometimes when I’m alone I google myself din hehehe

    @Jaypee: I have no idea. I’m guessing you need to have a handful of stalkers searching your name everyday. Hehe. Just kidding.

    @Ederic: Yeah I failed to mention that a “History” label doesn’t count πŸ˜€

    I think my name is too unique for google to suggest. It didn’t suggest anything after Jay… Of course for “jay”, there were several, top of the list being “Jay Leno”.

    Oh okay. In that case, it means I don’t have stalkers and you do! Hehe πŸ˜€

    Hi Andrew,

    My name is Charles and I work for Signium Ward Howell. I come across your Linked In profile. This may sound informal but i would like to ask if you are interested to explore an opportunity in Singapore. Our client is a banking institution(one of the biggest) and they are currently looking for PERL developers. If you are interested, you can send your cv to cochava@wardhowell.com.ph. It would best if we can talk about this over the phone. You can reach me at 8144207 or 09279162911. Is it also possible if I ask for your contact details so I can call you.

    Thanks and hoping for a favorable response from you.

    Regards,

    Charles

    @Jaypee: Sadly I do. It’s not even funny most of the time.

    Hi andrew, when i type “balay” in the toolbar my blog appears in the list — not sure though if this is because my url link is in my cache …
