For lesser-known individuals including entrepreneurs, freelancers, and self-employed people, there’s hardly any option to build a robust virtual identity to mark their online presence. Google vows to change this with its new offering, called People Card. It increases the visibility of every Internet user who wishes to build his online presence. Let’s see how to create and show Google People Card in Google Search.

The newly added capability has already begun showing up in English for mobile users in India. Here’s how to get started and show Google People Card in Google Search.

How to manage your People Card on Google Search?
At any point in time, if you feel like making changes to your People Card, you can easily edit it.

That’s all there is to it!
To avoid any misuse of the content on your 'People Card', Google has added a bunch of protections and controls. These help in maintaining the quality of information on your Search Card.
A word of caution – When you create a public profile or create your public card in on Google Search, the information contained therein should be a true representation of who you are and what you do.
Adding only relevant information will help others whenever they choose to search for you. Also, your profile picture should be a recognizable image of yourself. Never attempt to confuse or mislead!
It is important to mention here that currently, the feature is available for India users only.
