My slides (with added annotations) from a presentation I did for the Duke University Webcomm Group.
I cover the growing influence of social media on search engine results, why search engines are seeking “social signal,” and end with a focus on test we’ve been running on the powerful SEO influence of an optimized Google+ profile combined with Google’s Author Rank authorship verification system.

Your slideshow presentation is very informative. It’s amazing how you ranked higher than a well known poster from 2010 simply because you used Google Plus and you were more recent. Your research is very convincing. Thanks for sharing!
