Admit it, you've googled yourself at least once. A billion names are searched every day in Google but usually people will never go past the first page. So if you want to get on the front page you need to get your profile right, unless your name is James Smith, then you have no hope.
I found when searching my name the first profile to pop up is my Google+ profile. Obviously with it being Google's own social network, this is probably your best bet if you want to appear on the first page.
