I’m starting this, so if no one else ever does it I won’t be surprised…

How many letters of your name do you have to type into a google/browser search bar before it suggests your name correctly?

How many letter until Google suggests your name?

And.. Once you do type your full name, what are the things it thinks people are most interested in finding about you?

What does google think people what to know about you?

Whatcha got?



  1. “tara b”


    there are two other “Tara Brown’s” that regularly come up in search results and they are a photographer and a journalist from 60 minutes so probably related to them

  2. “faruk ” e.g. just my first name but With the space — not sure why. I’m also a little puzzled why it is beaten out by “faruk” terms that have nowhere near my number of results (728.000).

    And the only extra suggested result on my full name is about Flickr.

  3. It’s weird. I can’t get my browser to do the search suggestions at all anymore.

  4. Jason, yours is rather odd.

    For Jason Def, the shortest string before it suggests you, the thing that comes up before you is Jason Defense Advisory.

    And for your full name it makes no other suggestions. Just your name. Either everyone wants to know everything, or they just want to find you.

    (The only reason people want to find me by name is for candy blog.)

  5. I have to type all of “Samuel Hansen” and then it is the tenth entry that is actually about me which oddly enough is just a random twitter from my feed.

  7. “jay g” turns me up. Looks like “jay goldman” is the only suggestion, so I get no topics :(
