The more often YOU appear on that first page of search results the better, so I have found a really cool way to get your information out in front of people, and yes, it has that special pricing that is oh so important these days…FREE!
The picture in today’s post is my special page on About.Me. I used a custom image to do everything on the right side of the page, but About.Me gives you some free background images, the ability to customize fonts, colors and sizes, or you could do what I did and build your own custom image with your favorite image editor. The image that I used is 1400 by 875 pixels which is pretty close to the maximum size that they allow as a custom background.
The information on the left is all customizable too. You can add a brief headline and bio. You can add links to your other sites on the web, you can rename the links, change the colors, font sizes and typefaces. All in a very easy to use interface.
You can allow people to email you or not, you can collect visit statistics, you can submit the page to the search engines and so much more
It’s amazing that this is free given the ability to customize to your heart’s content. So, click on the picture or go to http://about.me/jerrykidd and check me out. While you are there you can also sign up for your own About.Me page. Why not, it’s free?
