You can now add yourself to Google Search. Using Google’s new “Add me to search” feature, you can now create your presence on Google Search by creating a people card. You need to submit a people card with your relevant info. People will then be able to search for you and discover your card on Google Search results.

Users can create a virtual visiting card on Search and highlight information like their existing website, social profiles, location, phone number, and even an email address if they want.
