Did you receive an email from Google Authorship this morning? It seems that many writers and bloggers who work with sites that have set up Google Authorship have received email confirmations from Google today, confirming their participation.
The email welcomes the participant to Google Authorship, and shows how authorship works in search results. Here’s the email:
Not everyone who uses authorship received confirmations, however. Only a few of us here at Search Engine Land and Marketing Land received the email, so it’s unclear what the criteria was to get one.
At SMX Advanced 2011, Matt Cutts announced the Google initiative for attributing authors. Authorship has expanded quite a bit since then, make sure to check out our latest posts on the topic listed below. And if you are headed to SMX East in NYC next week, don’t forget to attend the From Authorship To Authority: Why Claiming Your Identity Matters session on Wednesday, October 3rd.
