Do you use Google Authorship?
How many of you are using Google Authorship? I just got confirmation that mine is set up, seemed like it took about 2 months. What do you like about it?
What do you dislike about it? Have you noticed traffic increases?
I have it set up for HP and other rev-share sites and also my own sites. I like it, I think it gives the writer authority and shows what work is yours. I'm not exactly certain it increases traffic, but I know my traffic is doing pretty good and has been over the past several months; but I think that has to do with the season.
I use it. I'm not sure yet if it's boosted my traffic. I did some Google searches yesterday and found many of my articles listed. I think having the picture and such listed along with the link and summary makes the link pop out from the rest. Hopefully, that will catch people's attention and they'll check out my hubs.
Yes I use Google Authorship.

A sign of trust and credibility among users for the content they are going to read.
High CTR (Click Through Rate) compared to results with GA.

Looks like Google made another algo change earlier this week. My traffic rose about 25% on my main HP account around this time, so I'm guessing the update was the cause. My traffic is still low by historical standards (down by more than a third from the start of the year), but I...

Where are we on this?I see Google has added a new way to verify authors: http://www.google.com/support/webmaster … er=1408986That would seem to make things easier, though we would have to go back and edit hubs unless HP would provide a way to do this automatically if we wanted to (and...

After the recent Panda Update, most of my hubs are indexed on HubPages (Topics Page) instead of my sub-domain.My Google authorship was gone after the Panda Update (before the update it was there) and most of my hubs are indexed on HubPages (Topics Page). The URL link in the Google search to most of...
