What Is Google Authorship?

It’s simply a way for you to connect your content to your Google+ profile. This means that every piece of content you publish on your website as well as other websites will be associated with your Google+ personal profile. When people search for a particular keyword on Google, they’ll see your Google+ picture associated with your post!

Why Is It So Important?

There are many reason why Google Authorship is important. Here are just a few:

1- It helps you claim your content so Google knows that you’re the author of the content published on a particular website. This means that you’re the only person who will be credited for the content. This will reduce spam and duplicate content.

2- It’ll help you get more traffic from Google since studies showed that Google results with the author picture can get as much as a 150% increase in click-through-rates. This will results in more people clicking on your posts which will get you more traffic to your website.

3- It will increase your credibility and authority when searchers see that you’re a verified author.

4- Although Google didn’t say it directly, many experts believe that it plays a major role in ranking webpages. This means more traffic for you!
