    What do people whose names pop up in google searches all have in common? *Hint hint* f a m e. You have to either be known to the public, or use social media to gain fame. Or do something that goes viral. Its not something you can just ask google to do. Once you gain enough fame, you'll be added to wikipedia. but you'd have to let the public know about you, not just your name. Once your added to wiki, you'll automatically be added to google when your name is searched.

    Legally change your name to Usain Bolt. Then your name will show up in all sorts of searches.

    To get the relevant information available on a Google Search, my friend, the information has to be uploaded to somewhere. i.e. either YOU upload the information about yourself to various websites ... preferably related websites to the area you want information to be made available. i.e. sports sites.  You can also get others to upload information about you.

    The information uploaded SHOULD also include achievements that you have made.
