G-Cred

(n.): Google credibility. What someone sees when they Google your name, your business, your product, organization or whatever.

Coined by John Follis in '05 and later defined in the Urban Dictionary and his May '07 ADWEEK article, Follis says, "As Google and the Web continue to mature, online visibility will equate to credibility on every level. It does now through blogs and a myriad of social media venues that have become a respected, easily accessible and exponentially expanding source of credibility. From a professional and business stand point, G-cred is an ever-increasing measure of legitimacy and how seriously someone will take you.
