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 factor behind Search Ranking
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.
Leads to Conversion too.

As others, I am saddened by the recent Google update and drop in traffic,(luckily I have my eggs in different baskets) but what really ticks me off is that articles written recently (like a month ago!) by the average...
