I have the opposite problem. A famous romance author has the same
name as myself, so I am lost in the noise. I chose not to try to
"brand" myself by getting a name-based domain, as it felt like it
would be a never-ending SEO battle to get on page 1.
I haven't googled myself lately to see what shows up on page 2 and
later, but probably should.
