About.me is a third-party service to consolidate an online presence. As toddbirchard.me had been standing idly, building this out a no-brainer.
This is complete and will see minimal changes over time, as the product itself allows little room for customization.
My original intent was to toss my personal name into Google's search rankings. The results have been surprisingly positive.
About.me sites have a good rapport with Google: within a number of days, toddbirchard.me placed on the first page of Google search results with little effort. To put this in perspective, my blog of 3 months barely places on the third page, after much optimization. This service is currently owned by AOL, and likely is friendly with Google and other search engines.
The secret 'feature' here is the quality link building between social profiles. The gmail email signature is nifty but somewhat useless after the novelty wears off.
