I have been guilty of Ego Googling too. Admit it; you have at least played with the thought of creating your own Wikipedia entry. However because of the Wikipedia’s requirement of being “notable”, though, most people will find it really hard to find themselves on Wikipedia. Wikipedia, as you probably already know, is an online, multilingual encyclopedia whose entries are written and edited by readers around the world.
To be notable, a Wikipedia subject must be “the subject of multiple, non-trivial published works from sources that are reliable and independent of the subject and of each other.”
For us “not-notable-yet” the only reprieve is that we can get a Biographicon account, a wiki site set up with the express purpose of hosting biographies for every person on the planet who wants one, then drawing connections between those people.
