I should be able to find anyone online these days. I often search for specific people or company names to get product or contact information. Sometimes it's fast and sometimes it's very frustrating. Three times in the past week I failed to find websites (that I knew existed) for local companies. What business owner doesn't want to be found?
If you search my name on Google, the second entry is my Linked In profile. This leads people to a wealth of information about me and my company, including my phone number, website and blog - even if they aren't on Linked In themselves.
