It is true that Google Profiles serve as the main building blocks in acting as the foundation for making Google as the main social map in the whole web-world!

"A Google Profile is simply how you represent yourself on Google products — it lets you tell others a bit more about who you are and what you’re all about. You control what goes into your Google Profile, sharing as much (or as little) as you’d like." – Google

The news is that Google Profiles are now being indexed by search engines!

It is because of the fact that Google has added a new line into their robots.txt file and has lifted the nonindex style command for these files.

Garett Rogers writes :

Just about a half hour ago, Google added a new line into their robots.txt file which makes all those profiles (or at least 50,000 of them) crawlable by search engines. The new entry tells search engines to use “http://www.gstatic.com/s2/sitemaps/profiles-sitemap.xml” as a sitemap. The sitemap looks something like this:

http://www.gstatic.com/s2/sitemaps/sitemap-001.txt

According to Garett, Google would soon launch a “People Onebox” at one point. Google has earlier performed this task for local and books as well.
