New Service Helps Authors Be Seen Online

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwire - December 15, 2009) -, a newly launched service that helps users manage and control what is seen about them when their names are searched online, is pleased to offer its service to authors wanting to promote their names and books in Google, Yahoo and other search engines.

For $49, PlaceYourName will help users craft a press release and place information online, helping all content to appear prominently in the search engine results. One photo submission, which will appear in the search engine results, is also included with the service.

"Place Your Name is an easy and affordable way for authors and publishers to showcase their work," said Robert Casterline, co-founder and managing partner of

"It is particularly useful for those who are self-published and don't have large marketing budgets," he added.

After a brief registration process, users are taken to a back-end User Control Panel (UCP), where they input their biographical information and content. After approving changes made by a PlaceYourName editor, the information is then placed online across a wide variety of content portals, all viewable in the search engine results.

According to, nearly 480,000 books were published in the United States in 2008 and this figure is expected to rise in the coming years. With such a high prevalence of publications that can potentially go unnoticed, PlaceYourName has decided to aggressively promote its services to the publishing industry.

The unique online branding and self promotional service is also helpful for business owners and their companies, job seekers, artists, musicians, real estate agents and anyone else who wants a positive online search profile when their names are searched.

In recent weeks, Place Your Name has successfully helped several authors promote themselves and their works.
