Windows 7: Ever Googled your online name?

Ever Googled your online name?

Hi, I just did something I've never done before and Googled my johnwillyums name.
I discovered there is at least one other johnwillyums out there( I only did the first couple of pages)
Also there are loads of references to my posts on forums from way back. Forums I'd forgotten I'd even joined, forums I'd joined and never posted on, manufacturers forums, Opera Unite (?) and so on.
Quite interesting and a bit embarrassing to see some of the naive questions I posted a few years ago.
Also interesting was that there are no links or any reference to this forum which is the only one I've ever been really active on and posted more than a couple of times.
I even seem to have a Youtube channel with no videos posted!
I wonder why there are no links to SF posts when really banal stuff and even just having registered type stuff is there?

Ah. Yes, I get you. Good idea.
Thinking about it when I have googled question that I've already asked on here I have seen my post on SF in a link.
Nonetheless, quite interesting.
I asked some really dumb questions a few years ago and it's both nice to see I've made some progress but also makes me feel a bit humble and prone to noob hugging

I've done that before for other online nicknames I've used. I decided to go with my first name because if you search Bill on Google, I'm sure it would take a very long time to find me.

That's the same with Bongo it will not find me

But I have googled my real name (not a common name) & found a guy in Florida with the same, then about 2 or 3 months after he called me it was weird to see my name on the caller id
Jerry (my nickname since birth)

I'm a Bolivian footballer. And a photographer.
And it looks like on Youtube there's footage of me singing Latin songs
