search results when community members search for keywords contained in your profile.

To set up your profile:
Go to Your Avatar > Edit profile in the upper right corner.
On the Avatar or Photos tab,
change your avatar and manage your photos.
Your avatar and other photos let people see and recognize you in person. Your
avatar lets community members quickly associate your comments and status updates
with a simple visual cue.
On the Profile Details tab, fill in as much profile
information as you like.
Note that your profile can found when people search, so if you have
professional roles or interests that would be useful for others to know about,
you should include them. You may not be able to edit certain fields, such as
username. Usually, the community manager sets up these fields for you.
On the Privacy tab, edit your privacy settings. These
control how different types of users see your profile. For more information on
privacy settings, see Setting up content visibility options
in the User Guide.
The profile is set up and becomes available in search.
