I am new on Stack Overflow, I tried to get more badges and reputation.

I noticed the 'Informed Badge'. It says that it will get if we read the entire About page.

I tried it. I read the entire About page. But the badge doesn't appear in my profile.

What are the other easiest badges I can get?

The badges that are easy to earn are:

  • Autobiographer - Completed "About Me" section of user profile
  • Informed - Read the entire about page. NOTE: This is not available on meta sites.
  • Editor - First edit

Fairly easy to earn:

  • Teacher - Answered first question with a score of 1 or more.
  • Student - Asked first question with score of 1 or more
  • Supporter - First up vote you need to earn 15 reputation
  • Critic - First down vote you need 125 reputation

Re the "Informed" badge. If you scrolled all the way to the bottom of the about page on the main site it will have told you that you'd earned the badge.
