5 Reasons Why You Need to Use Rel=Author on Your Content

Good morning folks. Take a look at this blog post while drinking that first cup of coffee.

Quote:
Have you heard of Google’s Authorship program yet? Whether you’ve heard of it or not, you’ve likely seen its fruits in the search results. You know those listings that have a photo of the author next to them? Most likely they get that extra cool stuff because they’re using Rel=Author correctly and Google has accepted them to participate. Unfortunately, it’s been a bit hit-or-miss as to whether your content gets accepted or not. I saw mine accepted for a day or two many months ago, and then *poof!* it was gone. I reviewed their new guidelines recently, however, made a few changes, and sure enough, within a week or so, my content started showing up… yay!

While you may or may not get your content into the program, the only way to know is to try, and persistence is definitely a key.

If you’re thinking it’s just not worth the trouble, here are 5 reasons why it’s super important:

My thought is, I wish I had 1/2 of your knowledge base about how the internet works and the to do and not to do. Keep it coming, I'm slowly getting educated. I'm persistence anyways. LoL

It has taken me some time but eventually it worked.

It is important to have the rel=publisher connected to your Google+ business page only onto your homepage and the rel=author to the articles connected to your Google+ profile page.

Then you get this.

I have been using the author tag since it started.

I think it is a great idea. It's a great way to brand yourself and establish yourself more.

I only use it on a few websites that's revolved around my marketing. I don't use it on websites I don't want my name tied to. I was very careful how I structured it.

LOL, That would be the best reason I can think of for me not to do it. I wonder if I could use a really old photo.

It does sound interesting.

Search the plugin database for some plugins. I did a fast search but fine tune my search words.
