Google Authorship SEO


Google Authorship is Google’s way of identifying the author of a piece of content to factor it as a signal of content quality.

People know good content when they see it and will likely want to share it with others! Sharing through blog posts, social media services, email, forums, word of mouth, or other means.

Authorship is a great tool for content writers and bloggers! Quality content that is relevant to the audience and that has a high level of engagement and popularity online enhances the author’s authority. This is different from the traditional model because now authority is being ranked on the author instead of only page or site. Free SEO Starter Guide
