Hello everyone!

Just a reminder about tonight's final Barcamp SWFL leadership planning camp for 2014. This is not an ongoing meeting, but instead an opportunity for teams to come together for the unConference and growing the community in 2014 and beyond.

How to setup Google Authorship with 500px // I had previously written about adding your author information in your content so that your name can show up next to Google search engine results of your website and Google+ posts. 

But would this work on a third-party service that is not in your own domain? Well, at least for +500px, it works and it's really easy to setup. 

1) Go to your 500px settings page ( and declare your Google+ address
2) Go to your Google+ about page and add your 500px address in the Links section
3) Confirm that everything is working with Google's Structured Data Testing Tool

You're done!
