That was a cool hangout, I wish I had been there when it was happening. I was at the webinar you did the other day on this topic, and I’m changing my online strategy based on the info I’ve learned there and by watching this. I’ve heard murmurs before and I suspected this was going on, but now I’m making some adjustments. Thanks for the really good information!
Question. My pic is still not showing in results. Come on google!
If we have many sites, with our own unique content, would it be wise or unwise to set up google authorship on each of them?
I ask, because I have several of these sites linked to each other for stronger SEO, and don’t want to bring too much attention to Big G if it will hurt me.
Interesting stuff, it seams that from now on the center of social attention at least for Google is Google Plus. I’ll try to shift from Facebook and Twitter since the real SEO benefits are already pretty obvious
