TOTAL SHARES 173

As a business resource, Slideshare stands pretty much head and shoulders above most other content platforms.

From presentations to educational content and more, you can find information and curated media on pretty much any topic you have an interest in.

As a research solution, Slideshare offers analysis from some of the smartest minds on the web across all verticals. These include standard presentations, videos, multimedia and more.

Which brings us to this week’s Sunday Share.

Every week, I’ll be sharing a presentation that catches my eye and where I feel you might be interested in the information inside. These will range from business to content to social media to marketing and more.

This week, a short but useful Slideshare from JoannaVaiou, a SEO consultant and strategist from Greece. As Google continues to utilize Google+ as a social layer that ties all its other products together, its Authorship Markup feature has become even more important.

This presentation explains just what Google’s Authorship Markup is, why you need it, and how to enable it.

Enjoy.

@TXWriter Thanks for tweeting about Google authorship! I could never get it to work. Maybe this time :)

TXWriter

@lexirodrigo I’m not sure if mine is working or not, but after over a year of trying I did get an email from Google.

lexirodrigo

@TXWriter Let’s Google a title of something you wrote, so we can test it :)

WritingThoughts

@lexirodrigo I do agree that Google+ is going to become more and more important for writers.

@lexirodrigo I do agree that Google+ is going to become more and more important for writers.

TXWriter

@lexirodrigo But if you just Google WritingThoughts, my image is there–that means page rank, right?

TXWriter

@lexirodrigo Any way, I plan to study Danny Brown’s post to see if I have done anything wrong.

TXWriter
2 years 6 days ago

@lexirodrigo For example, the ones on WritingThoughts rarely have my image. But about half of the ones on Freelance Folder do.

TXWriter

@lexirodrigo On other blogs it’s hit or miss.

TXWriter

@lexirodrigo Well, some of them have my image and others do not.

@TXWriter That’s got to be a good sign!

This was very useful, Danny! I had signed up for authorship but had not yet employed the coding in posts. We're developing our company blog at Brightergy and I want to make sure to include Google Authorship for all of our contributors. Thanks again!

Danny Brown

Awesome, great to hear, Rachel, and glad Joanna's presentation helped!

Wayne Liew

Thank you for sharing this Slideshare presentation, Danny. Apart from the increase in CTR, many are speculating that Author Rank is imminent and will significantly change the quality of search results. This is going to benefit authors who are consistently publishing great and useful content across a number of websites, making Google Authorship Markup crucial for online content producers.

Danny Brown

Particularly if, as rumours suggest, Wayne, Google enters the influence measurement race with their own take on the kind of content that's driving action. An interesting few months ahead!

Danny Brown

For sure, Joanna, happy to share and great little resource!

Thank you for the appreciation all! Please feel free to connect with me and solve unsolved issued still with Google Authorship.

I have just set it up for my Quora blog and it works just fine with no hassle!

Have a wonderful new week!

I just tried it this way but I'm still having an issue. Even though I have verified several other options.

Danny Brown

Hi Ana,

What software are you using to run your blog/site? If it's WordPress, have a look at the reply I gave to Kaarina, that should work for you too?

Kaarina Dillabough
2 years 15 days ago

Danny, I thought I'd done this months ago, and when I go to the option of email address, it indicates I'm already signed up for authorship. However, upon testing, it's not showing up. I'm not sure what I've done wrong.

My understanding was this:
Create a post.
Precede with "By ___, the name that was linked via email on google +.
And presto zingo, this was supposed to do the trick.

The slideshow is indeed, as Keith Davis said, short and to the point, but I'm clearly missing the point. I don't know what I've done wrong. (More) help please:)

Kaarina Dillabough
2 years 15 days ago

Thanks so much: this is far more comprehensive than the initial directions given elsewhere about signing up for authorship (which I followed, obviously to no avail). I will now attempt lift-off…much appreciated.

Danny Brown
2 years 15 days ago

Hi Kaarina,

The easiest way I've found is with HTML in an Author Bio box after the post. You're using Headway 2.06 (Genesis offers straight from the box), so you'll need to choose a plugin for this:

http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/tags/author-bio

Then in your Profile Settings, ensure you have a link back to G+ with your name. Here's the code I use as an example:

<a href="https://plus.google.com/118189632042502811468?rel=author"&gt; Danny Brown</a> is Chief Technologist at <a href="http://thearccompany.com">ArCompany</a&gt; and an award-winning marketer and blogger. His blog is recognized as <a href="http://dannybrown.me"&gt; the #1 marketing blog in the world</a> by HubSpot. Danny is also co-author of <i><a href="http://amzn.to/RjnEGx"&gt; Influence Marketing: How to Create, Manage and Measure Brand Influencers in Social Media Marketing</a></i>.

As you can see, my name is hyperlinked back to my Author profile on G+. Hope that helps!

Joanna / Danny Brown Loved the slideshow – short and to the point.
The 30 to 15% increase in click through rate is pretty impressive and a good reason to take the time to implement.

Studiopress have added a little section to their Genesis child themes where you can paste in your Google+ ID number – makes it even easier to setup.
