Google prioritizes authored content to help users find more relevant content
Allows authors to ‘claim’ their work and solidifies their authority within their industry
Increases engagement between authors and readers
Brian Childers of Foxxr will take your through the steps to verify your google authorship in a few simple steps and get your author archives showing up in search results.

    Great discussions, another worthwhile meetup! I especially enjoyed Brian's talk on Google Authorship and Kathryn's presentation of Events Calendar Pro.

    Excellent. I wish I could have stayed for the "after conversations" -- next time.

    Overall, the presentations were interesting and useful, especially the Google authorship talk, and the Wordcamp report. Friendly group. I'd go again.

      I'm so glad that I skipped my other opportunity for tonight! The pointers and reflections of WordCamp which were shared will help me meet my client's goals. Thanks all…

    Hi, I'm new to this group. I was wondering if someone could say a little more about what this next meeting is about -- and also say how it relates to Wordpress? I'd just like to know more before I make a decision to attend or not. -- thanks.
