  • When we click on that, the search engine will either redirect to a page to fill in your details or prompts us to click on some options to fulfill the criteria.
  • Suppose either of the things mentioned earlier is done. In that case, it will ask to fill in details like the profession or education or any other qualifications of the person which are eligible to be displayed as someone’s information on the search results of the search bar.
  • The prompt will generally be “add me to google” or “edit your people card,” which is the card or account that contains every detail of the person but gives only the required parts on the display section.

-Educational Institution.

  • After filling in these details, the google search browser asks the user to have a preview or a last look before submission of the card. This is the last stage where the user can change the content according to their preferred content.
  • Once the users reach satisfaction with the resulted content, the card details need to be submitted to the google search engine so that they can be processed and available for the necessary display of the information.


The user’s content on the “add me to search” should oblige to some community guidelines of the search engine. These guidelines must be followed by everyone who wants their name to be on the Google SERP results.

Some of the guidelines which are needed to be followed by the users are:

  • Content should be only about the user. Nothing more than the user profile should be out of context like it should not be mentioned about any other person’s details. The content should be only about who you are, what you do, etc.
  • The most famous people cards when you go through another person’s search engines, the distinguished details are mostly their hometown details or professional details.
  • It is also essential for the user to maintain an up-to-date profile of the card, as the google algorithm updates every day and needs to be in significantly updated content of the user.


The main reason Google or, in that case, any search engine asks the users to follow the community guidelines is to maintain friendly and easily accessible, and easily sharable content to all of the viewing community.

This reason makes the content look better and helps to reach more people. If such a case is not satisfied, creating an account is inappropriate for the search engine to publish at their reputation cost.

Suppose any user or account creator does not accommodate these guidelines. In that case, the google immediately removes the people’s card, and if the same issue repeats further, it also considers completely blocking the Ip of the devices used.

So, it is better to respect the guidelines of the google for the account details to be intact in the search results.
