A while back there was a thread about searching your name on google, but the way the name was entered in the search bar was a bit different from usual and the result threw up the number of times that name had entries on the web ie.if you entered a fairly common name there would be hundreds of thousands of entries and a very unusual name only a few.

Mine had around 200 results, only 2 of which were actually me.

I can't recall how to search the name ....was it maiden+surname or something similar?

Sorry, not sure I'm making myself very clear

I think you need to put your name in speech marks as in "Your Name"?
