Googling is using the popular search engine Google.com to look up someone's name in an effort to find out more about them. You might Google your neighbor, your old college roommate, or someone you've recently met to see what information is available about them on the Internet. Because Google has a ranking system, there is an unsubstantiated belief that the more Google returns a person has, the more important they are.
