SpeedLink 41, Google Authorship, Blogging, SEO And Social Media

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a great week and looking forward to Halloween, at least for those of you who celebrate. Much has been happening all over the place and guess who is not stopping any moment soon? From acquisitions, to nearly everyday launch of new features on G+, Google has been busy. New AdSense reports, new features on G+ such as the “view ripples”, and much more.

Another novelty that they came up with this week is the Google Authorship verification, now being possible, only by using your email address. This makes everything much easier, although there is a catch. If you choose this path, just bear in mind that you have to set your email address public, meaning that everyone will be able to see it. I do see some possible advantage of using this form, like being visible even commenting on other blogs. If you are interested to find out more, read this post. BTW, what do you think of this move?

Anyway, and as usual, in no particular order.

Blogging/Online Business


Social Web/Other Stuff

Social is Key to SEO in 2011

And I would speculate that it will even more in 2012. What do you think?

That’s it! Enjoy and have great week ahead.

    Thanks for keeping on top of the Google authorship changes, diTesco. That email thing might work if you have email set up on your domain and you publish in a single place. My problem is that I publish on multiple blogs and I don’t have email addresses at each of the domains. This authorship thing is a real headache and I have still not got it to work.

      Hi Sharon. I hear you on the email thing problem. This is true if you are actually publishing something. However if you use the same email address to comment for example, I think that those comments, which have your verified email address, will get attention from Google. Anyway, I still don’t understand why you are having problems with your authorship. Shoot me an email and maybe I can help.

    Thanks for posting this very informative post. It’s very great to hear about google’s awesome new features. Google Authorship verification is I think a very cool feature which can help me in my business.
