Google Launches People Cards, Virtual Visiting Cards 

Getting visibility on search can be difficult and challenging especially if you are not popular or if you have a name that is common. Thanks to Google’s new virtual business cards, it won’t be the case anymore.

Termed as ‘People Cards‘, the new Google card lets individuals highlight themselves in the search results & create an online presence like never before.

The virtual visiting card is currently launched only in India with the aim to help  individuals, influencers, entrepreneurs, freelancers and anyone looking to highlight their work.

For users looking to find someone on Search with their name, the card will be available. However, currently the results will be visible to searchers in India only. 

To make the feature more robust Google has added a feedback button to report cards with wrong information or created by an impersonator.
