Now that Google Authorship photos are gone from search, don't give up on it quite yet.
OK, so the big news this last week wasn't Google I/O. At least for me, it wasn't. Actually, it was #GoogleAuthorship
for me and how it affects content creators everywhere.
This topic was discussed all over Google+ on threads by +Mark Traphagen
and +Eli Fennell
as they sorted through this change. Since I am not an authority on Google Authorship, I would recommend you circle them to gain insight as this type of news happens.
For me, I look at Google Authorship from another perspective. We all know there are a number of moving parts that go into your own discovery and Authorship is just one of those cogs.
In my weekly blog, I published my thoughts about this Authorship change and add the element of #Propinquity
Marketing into the fold.Read about it here http://www.shannonjhernandez.com/google-authorship-photo-missing/
One of the biggest complaints by small business owners and entrepreneurs is that they have to blog consistently.
I know that blogging does take time, but the purpose of blogging helpful content only builds your library of content that pretty much sells a website visitor within minutes.
Although the Authorship change can be a sore subject to those who are already invested, it should be look to as an opportunity to create great content and drive traffic to two places: Your Website AND
Your Google+ Profile.
