Evil Plan Revealed using Google Authorship
If you are not signed up for Google Authorship then all your blog post are useless. Well, maybe not the blog post but you are useless….google authorship
Unless you are enrolled in Goolge Authorship then your not viewed as the creator of your original content. This makes is easy for someone to swipe your content and repurpose it and go unpunished.
Google Authorship stops this from happening without consequences.
In recent times Google has been taking massive action against the way Google ranks content. Traditionally Google would use the authority and back links of high profile sites.
That worked great until it became easy to craft and bend the rules to get crappy content ranked quickly. As with all things, someone found a loophole in the Google Algorithm and started building systems and software that created low quality back links to sites. Thus allowing for content that offered little value to end up at the top mixed in with the quality content. Google caught onto this.
Google has now created a ranking algorithm tied to WHO publishes the web pages!!
Now, Google is able to rank your web page based on your authority in a niche.
Google authorship puts a Identity with every website
If your a vegan blogging on all the benefits of your lifestyle and you have developed a good following and created a good reputation. Google wants you on top of the ranks for “vegan meatloaf” not a crappy page built on back links that is covered in ads.
For the record, Google isn’t going to be dismissing all back links or SEO. Im not saying that, but there is a shift to how Google is looking at your content.
You want to make sure your content leads with value, solves problems people are looking for and sees YOU as the Author……
