On previous occasions, we have talked about different services that help us launch a personal page. In the early days of the Internet, doing this involved writing HTML code to a file, uploading it to an FTP server, and crossing your fingers to make everything look correct in your web browser.
Fortunately, we have evolved a lot. Today, most hosting services offer, in addition to space to upload your page or website, tools that automate the process of designing and creating that same page.
So technically we have the problem solved. The question is, do I really need to create a personal page? Worth? Let’s see several reasons why you should consider having your own personal page.
Join Your Online Profiles
If you are habitual in social networks, you surely have a profile on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter … Maybe even on Pinterest. You may even have a blog on Blogger, WordPress or Medium. And what about YouTube. It is also possible that you have created several independent or connected pages or websites.
All that content that talks about you are scattered on the Internet. Why not unify it on a page that lists where you have an online presence? Even if your social profiles are connected to each other with a link in the descriptions, a personal page allows you to organize and show everyone your social profiles and how they can connect with you.
Be Easier To Find
Although Google and other search engines try to show results beyond web pages and for years have also indexed YouTube videos or comments and Facebook or Instagram profiles, launching a web page can help you improve your search engine visibility using SEO techniques.
What do you prefer those who search for you on Google to see first? Your Instagram profile or your personal page? It’s up to you. What’s more, if your social network profiles do not usually appear among the first results when searching for you, you can fix it with your personal page and SEO plugins that will advise you.
Control Your Image In Search Engines
Related to the previous reason. Sometimes, if you search for your name in Google, nothing related to you will appear. But sometimes, the results are not what you want a future employer or the person in charge of a company you want to work to see.
By launching your personal page you can try to remedy it and make one of the first links that the person looking for you see to be your personal page, well designed and with all the links that you have decided to put online.
Linking with the above. Unlike what a search engine can show, a personal page is controlled by you. So you decide which links to include, in what order, which images or videos, the text that describes you …
It is not about falsifying or inventing things. As with a resume, on your personal page, you can enhance the best of yourself and thus make yourself known as a professional or personal. It will depend on the objective of your personal page.
Harm does not
And we close the circle by going back to the beginning of this article. Creating a personal page is easy, fast and with the help of templates and themes the result is professional with little effort.
In a matter of a few minutes, you will have your personal page ready to organize your online presence and make yourself known properly without interference from unwanted search engine results.
Harming yourself is not going to harm you, and even if you do not achieve your purpose, you will only have wasted a few minutes of your time. It is more what you can win than what you will lose trying.
