Moses: I Googled myself and all I got was 31,700,00 results

Four-seven percent Internet users Googled themselves last year, not counting those who Google themselves secretly under a sheet or something.

That’s the report from the Pew Internet Life Peeps:

NEW YORK - More Americans are Googling themselves — and many are checking out their friends, co-workers and romantic interests, too.

In a report Sunday, the Pew Internet and American Life Project said 47 percent of U.S. adult Internet users have looked for information about themselves through Google or another search engine.

That is more than twice the 22 percent of users who did in 2002, but Pew senior research specialist Mary Madden was surprised the growth wasn’t higher.

“Yes it’s doubled, but it’s still the case that there’s a big chunk of Internet users who have never done this simple act of plugging their name with search engines,” she said. “Certainly awareness has increased, but I don’t know it’s necessarily kept pace with the amount of content we post about ourselves or what others post about us.”

Which begs the question: What would Moshe Rabbenu do?

Well, Googling for Moses gets 31,700, 000 results, King Solomon scores just over a million, and Theodor Herzl clocks in at 360,000.

You’ve looked yourself up, right?  What did you find?
