What Is An Authorship Code?
An authorization code is a unique six to thirty-two character code designed to prevent fraudulent or unauthorized transfers. This code is an extra safety feature. It is similar to a credit card verification code or a PIN for your domain. It helps to ensure that the customer transferring the domain is indeed the owner of that domain. The authorship codes will ensure that only a domain owner can make domain name transfers. Accelerate Marketing, Inc. specializes in this area as well as San Diego search engine marketing.
The easiest and most reliable way to enable authorship information in Google search results is to provide a verified email address on the same domain as your content. Also make sure you have a profile photo with a recognizable headshot.
Google is piloting the display of author information in search results to help users to discover great content.
Linking your content to your Google profile is a two-step process. First, a link from your website or page must be added to your Google profile. The second step of the verification process is to add a reciprocal link back from your profile to the site(s) you just updated.
Google will link an individual’s Google plus personal profile page to the business website and to the Google plus business page. Google will also show the individual’s picture in the search results when it shows that business’ web site, when its linked up properly, and it will show that person’s picture in the maps result. This will give you a significant edge over your competition and allow your business to stand out above the rest. Not only because you have a favorable reputation but because your picture is showing up which creates much more interest.
The impact of visual “social proof” can dramatically increase the click-through rate (click-through rate is the percentage of those who see your content in search results pages who then click your link) for your posts and pages.
When you see a photo of a blogger next to their post in search results, it means that they have claimed their content through the Google Authorship program. The Google Authorship program associates content directly with its author, not just with its domain. This is mutually beneficial for both the author and Google as it helps boost author’s profiles while it helps Google weed out spam and “thin” content.
