How easy are you to find on the Internet? Is anyone looking for you?

How easy are you to find on the Internet by Richard WeisserI was taking a trip down memory lane earlier today and I decided to try to look up some of my old high school acquaintances in the Internet.

In most cases I couldn’t find them.

I would have thought that in this day and age the only reason you could not be found on the Internet would be of you dod NOT want to be found. Even that seems hard to me.

If you Google my name,  you will find me all over the place. Hundreds of places.

Anyone wanting to find me would not have a problem doing so.

Come to think about it, so far nobody has been looking!!!

Update: I did get a lovely message from one of my contact attempts today! That made my day!

We are so used to being all over the internet, it is baffling when we realize not everyone is!

I am surprised when I google leads and cannot find a trace.  However, at least 90 per cent of the time, I can find someone on the web.

I am in a group with at least half of my class on facebook.  We've faithfully had reunions every five years.  I would venture to say we're closer than most classses.

    I know very few people that are simply not on the Internet.  A couple of them told me that they do not want an "internet presence".   A couple of others are people who have never used the Internet.

Richard, I've participated in that same exercise. Like you, I didn't find anyone but I can be found lots of places.

Hi Richard, Well, I know you made that happen with all your great marketing. And you don't have a real common name like Johnson, LOL

Hey Richard Weisser 

I have connected with so many people on facebook from high school.  I am not too hard to find on the Internet either.

Best of GREAT success to you always!

Richard, I have found that there are still people that I know who I cannot find on the internet. I'm not sure how they do it.

Good morning Richard. Doing an extreme makeup on my website is one of the first projects I need to do before the first of the year. I have a lot of ideas just not a whole lot of time. Thank you for the reminder.

You don't have to look very hard to find me either. Between my business web page and all my social media accounts I'm pretty easy to track down.

I use the fact the I have pretty good Google juice to compete against other Realtors that don't.  Heck, if you can't find a salesperson online, how do you expect to find their product/service?

I seem to be available all over also.  But if you don't put anything out there...there is nothing to find.
