Create your own card with Google

Alt Text

Google India introduced the people's card on Google Search.

So, now instead of showing your business card just ask them to search you on Google. How cool is that, no?

To get your own people card you just need an android or IOS device. Remember, the feature is not available on the desktop.

STEPS to create your own people card:

  • Log in to your Google account on your device and search for "add me to search" OR just type in your name in the search.
    'Get Started' will appear for you, here it's 'edit' as I've already created the card. Tap on 'Get Started'!
    Alt Text

  • Fill all your details and socials and tap 'Preview' to review the card last time.
    Be careful will uploading phone number and Email, it'll be shown publicly.
    Alt Text

  • Tap on 'Save' and that's it.
    Congratulation!, Now you have your own card on Google.

I was able to successfully edit my card on a VPN but when I went back later, I couldn't.

Yeah, for now it's in India. Hope it releases in other places too.

I think Google will review your card then it will allow it on their search results... I've created this card way before Google released and I created it again.

No, I don't think it's like that. Mine is working completely fine.
And how did you created the card before Google released it?

The names are case sensitive and try to scroll a bit further. You might be appearing in the 'People' section.

Pretty cool, but not sure how useful it is for someone with a common name

Maybe, but for now there are not many people with the card.

Obviously, it can't completely replace the business card as of now. But has some advantages for sure.

Hi, thanks for this. Although my website shows up at the top (at least till this date) but having a card will be helpful as well.
I didn't know about this.
