Get Google Authorship
Some of the most successful people making money right now are the ones who are using social media to drum up a ton of business. That’s website, that’s content, that’s searches, and all of the social media you hear about on daily basis. A Facebook fan page, Pinterest, Youtube, Google + and Google + business, a Yelp profile. There are these things that when done right and hooked up to your site will get you business. Staying on top of the newest social media techniques and paying attention to what your competitors are doing is imperative if you want to keep up with them and stay in business. That’s where Google Authorship comes in. Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, somewhere in the last year you probably started seeing your competitors pop up in the search engine results with a little photo of them next to their website. You probably thought – “What the heck, How did they do that? Do they have something I don’t? How do they make the time to know all of this stuff?” You knew the instant you saw it that it was cool, made them stand out, and that you wanted it. But several questions probably popped into your head at the same time; What is it? & How do I get that? Can I do it myself to save myself some money? Well the answer is simple – its called Google Authorship & you can get it by connecting your Google Plus profile to your websites, and sure you can do it yourself. But the real question isn’t ‘can you’, but ‘should you’? Setting up Google Authorship and setting it up right are two different things. The truth is, people, that you aren’t in the website business, we are. And your competitors know that. They don’t spend hours and hours researching this stuff, figuring out the steps to do it and then doing it themselves. They learned eons ago it’s more cost effective to hire someone to stay on top of whats trending and pay them to do it for them! That’s why they probably DO have something you don’t – a Web guru like us 🙂
Let’s discuss the finer points of Google Authorship for a moment and why you want it, and how it can benefit you and why you should hire us instead of attempting to do it yourself.
What is Google Authorship?
Google Authorship is a way to tell Google that you are an AUTHOR of a certain website, social profile, Blog, Article or piece of work you’ve created is yours and you should get the author credit. It connects all of these pieces using your Google + profile so that your sites will display author information in search results and help users discover your great content.
This is an example of what Google Authorship looks like:
