It’s a bit late on a Sunday after another busy week, so I’m going to keep this quick with something I found particularly exciting about blogging this week – my authorship snippet has started to show up in Google!
Whether you like Google or not, I still think it’s great to see my name and face next to my review. It adds an extra level of accountability for bloggers, too, I think.
I noticed that particular review was referring me a ton of visits this month, so lo and behold I am the first review ranking and have that great little snippet there! It ties into my Google+ profile, which admittedly I barely use, but it’s nice to see my name next to my review and makes the result stand out. I suspect it’s resulting in the extra traffic, which is also nice. I hope I’ve inspired more than one purchase, as I love Bernard Cornwell.
If you’d like to do the same, there are instructions here and in many other places online.
