    LOL I just tried this for the first time! I had 3 (8,9 and 10) on the first page. The first 2 are for HP and the 3rd was for my personal website. Pretty cool! I do, however rate better by just a google search of my name. Unfortunately, my name is pretty common. Thanks for suggesting this as I had never tried it before!

    My profile pic is number 1 and 2, after that, there are a bunch of photos that I have on my hubpages.  smile

    robie2posted 9 years ago

    I'm not sure what you are doing--but I just put "robie2" into google search, thinking who else but me could come u p LOL--Well my profile on hubpages is 1 and one of my hubs is 2 on page one but then there is a jpg photo #2 for something called the robie house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and then there is somebody with a screen name of robie2 on a Latin dating site and also some car buff with the name robie2.-- find that kind of  interesting--dunno why.

      Is that what you are doing? and are you searching google images as well?

      Whitney05posted 9 years agoin reply to this

      It's probably because of "girl" being in your screen name.

      I get tons of pictures. My regular profile picture is on there several times. I also see most of the pictures that I've used in my hubs, as well.

  8. robie2 profile image98
    robie2posted 9 years ago

    Oh silly me-- I just went back and read compu-smart's post--he said images(duh) so I searched my profile in images-- ok the first three were my profile pic on hubpages, #4 was a pic from one of my hubs and 5 was Livelonger's avatar from a forum post to me--then there are a whole bunch more photos from my hubs--hmmmmm think I have to go back and give them all new titles:)

      How dare he usurp you!  He's only a 3 times Grand Slam Champion... 

      Images from my Hubs were in 3rd and 4th spot, with a "more from hubpages" under the second one which took me to the images from almost every one of my Hubs.  I also had a couple of images from Amazon, of all places.

    1. Marisa Wright profile image98
      Marisa Wrightposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      Unfortunately, you've picked a nickname that relates to a very common image. My name happens to be unusual, although it doesn't sound as though it should be.

    2. Eric Graudins profile image60
      Eric Graudinsposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      Choose a name that doesn't consist of 2 very commonly used dictionary words.
      Or why not use your real name ???

  17. Zsuzsy Bee profile image90
    Zsuzsy Beeposted 9 years ago

    This is kind of freeky. My name is unusual so I'm on the first page but also as far as I can tell all the hubs I've left comments on and all the hubbers who's fan I'm and who is my fan are all pictured there...weird

  19. drummer boy profile image60
    drummer boyposted 9 years ago

    would it be wise for me to change my title?  Is that even possible?

    1. Zsuzsy Bee profile image90
      Zsuzsy Beeposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      I think I read somewhere that once you have your name you're stuck with it as you can't transfer your existing hubs. But you can start a new account.

    2. Marisa Wright profile image98
      Marisa Wrightposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      I don't think you can, but you've only got 7 Hubs - so if you were to delete them and start a new account, you wouldn't have lost much.

    None of my images come up until page 15!  I think the tip would be to create a unique screename when you first sign up.

  21. drummer boy profile image60
    drummer boyposted 9 years ago

    well I do like a good challenge, so it looks like I have got a lot of good writing to do to be the best drummer boy.  Hopefully I will show up someday.

    The image search seems more random than anything else.  I got different results several times I tried it.

  23. drummer boy profile image60

    does it help if you put more pictures on the internet for everyone to see?  Is there a way of posting pictures on googles site?

  24. Susan Ng profile image91
    Susan Ngposted 9 years ago

    Three of my photos appear on the first page of image search, two of them from hubpages and one from blogspot.  Photos #4, 5, and 11.  But when I do a web search, there's this voice over talent with my name that appears multiple times. tongue  I'm still on the first page though, no. 8. big_smile

      Marisa Wrightposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      Why worry about it?  As several people have said, whether your name shows up on search engines has absolutely NOTHING to do with your success.  You want people to find your articles on search engines - you really don't care whether they can find you by name! 

      Like I said, if it really bothers you, why not save your Hub text, delete your Hubs, start a new account with a more unique name and repost them.

      1. compu-smart profile image69
        compu-smartposted 9 years agoin reply to this

        A name that would work under a gOOgle images search would be something like Britney Spears naked pictures lol, but im not sure if this would be allowed and there is no way i could or would  even think about tranfering all my hubs (340) to new name and as you mentioned its really about search engines...

        1. drummer boy profile image60
          drummer boyposted 9 years agoin reply to this

          lol I don't think Britney Spears quite adds up for me anyway.  I am going to stick with drummer boy.  Beside's isn't it a good think it is popular, if I ever do get noticed then it would mean a lot of traffic right?

    Well, in the first 100 images there's two of me, one of my german shepherd when he was a pup, and a couple of images from sites I'm involved with.

    The rest of them are mainly people from hub pages, and images from hubs.

    Wow. when I've been here a bit longer, with a bit of luck, my face might not even make it into the first 200 smile

      I just imaged searched your name and your 1st on the 1st page!!. I also can see the person in the picture with you much better than your profile  pic!

      Regards to choosing a name that would show up with popular search keywords would be good but its still a minefield of possible pros n cons!! at least i hope this knowledge will give people lots to think about before finally decideing on choosing or changing a profile  name!!

        Yeah, having a semi-famous tennis player named after you certainly doesn't help. I do have  4 of the first 10 references on a web search, but I am competing with a bunch of newspapers for the images smile

    zylla3philippinesposted 9 years ago

    Among the dumb things that I can't do, googling was one I leaned earlier in my short internet life. I started with my real name and my husband's name hoping to find some lost relatives... then my pen name when I first started my wordpress blog. What resulted in a discovery of 'blog scrapper', which I didn't know ever existed in my pre-scammer web worldview, keeps me in awe of google's power.

    It was just my playful curiosity that brought me to test Mighty Google, and stupidity turned to serendipity...that took me playing web detective until 4am. This accidental discovery had shaped the last 4 months of my blog life at wordpress. It's continuing to direct my blogging path until I could learn to do plugins that could probably protect me from these blog scrapers. It seems that blog scrapping was more profitable before it was known to many.

    I should say, I'm glad it also took me to HubPages as well as broadens my blogging views...even if I have to face many technological challenges that's driving me nuts.

    Im thinking that it could be a bonus having someone famous with the same name!!

    I would think you have had hits to your pages because people may have initially been searching for a this tennis player and (field hockey) player and ended up at your pages which is all good;)
