That's interesting, Chris. And where are your writers based? Do you have writing positions available. I'm guessing we have lots of folks here who would be interested!

We're thinking about what we need from our clients to improve our ability to provide them with truly valuable content. 

What do you think gets the best results? What do you need in order to make sure you can provide the best content you can?

Hi Chris!  Nice to see you in this group!

To contribute my two cents... If you want to provide valuable content for someone else, you have to really understand a) their business and b) their customer/audience. There is so much complete and total crap floating around the internet in all types of industries. I mean,  just subscribe to a couple of copywriting blogs and you'll find the SAME topics recycled again and again and again and again and again. If you can drill down what your client does BETTER than anyone else, and if you can really get a feel for what their audience and customers are looking for, you'll strike gold.  Forrtunately, most automated content businesses can't (or don't care to) deliver this level of understanding, which means for those of us who can, there are endless opportunities.

Celebrating 10,000 Members in the Google Authorship & Author Rank Community!

I want to express my deep gratitude to all the members of this community as we gained our 10,000th member earlier today. 

When I created this community on the third day of Google+ Communities back in December 2012, I never dreamed it would grow this large. But much more important than the numbers is the quality of posting and engagement that happens here. 

In the past 8 months a huge number of people have been helped through their questions and difficulties with Authorship. We've had some of the most interesting (and sometimes heated!) discussions over what Google is up to with Authorship and Author Rank. It's never been boring here, and always useful.

I especially want to give thanks to my awesome team of moderators. Even when I have been away from the community for a few days, it's never mattered. They clean away the spam very quickly and make sure questions are answered and discussions are kept civil.

It's because of all of you that I can brag at conferences and elsewhere about this being the largest and best Authorship community on the web.
