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.

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...

I was studying the Authorship Markup on the new profile format that has been released for staff only at this time. I noticed that the HTML link to other profiles is coded as rel="me nofollow". This defeats the purpose of rel="me" for Google authorship markup since...

Hubbers, I'm sorry that we can't tell you why your traffic is going down or why Google was showing Hubs on hubpages.com and now has reverted to showing them on the subdomain. We are similarly frustrated. We do know Google announced a panda update last week. We also can see Hubs...

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 Joe and clearly copied from mine are outranking me! What I noticed is that when I...
