Marketing Mole: Who does Google think you are? - Marc Sands, Marketing director, The Guardian

- The first link takes us to a brief profile on The Guardian's website, while the second is to a comment Sands left on the site in January 2007.

- The third listing pushes to The Guardian's press office, which provides more detail on Sands' career.

- The fourth reference is to Sands' profile on ZoomInfo.

- The final result takes us to a LinkedIn profile for an executive based in the US.

Verdict - The Guardian has a high Google ranking, so it is not surprising that its site features so prominently. We are left in no doubt about what Sands does, but have little information on his marketing strategy.

Action - Sands should set up a LinkedIn profile. He could also use blogs and online forums to ensure that The Guardian plays a leading role in shaping industry thinking on how newspapers will continue to grow their businesses.
