To go along with this week's article on Rel=Author, I asked my social media followers:
Have you implemented Rel=Author on your content yet? If yes, does it show in Google results?
Here's how they responded:
SEOChemist: Yes, yes and no. I have it working on some sites and not others. Yet to figure out what is going wrong.
Realicity: Yes, I've implemented & not showing in search results. Wondering if it's a high school'esque popularity content for Google :(
Marie_Haynes: Yes, I implemented it months ago and it started showing 2 weeks ago. Seeing dramatic CTR increases!
Steven Weldler: Not yet.
Tamra Hamblin: Yes and not yet.
David Wallace: Yes about 2 to 3 weeks ago and still has not taken effect. Not sure if I did it correctly but haven't heard anything back from Google so uncertain. I heard it is still a manual process and can take some time.
Gil Reich: Yes, implemented it. No, it doesn't show up.
Sean Carlos: Yes, yes.
Dianna Huff: Not yet but it's on the to-do list.
Ken Horst: Not yet :(
Wissam Dandan: Yes and Yes.
David Sottimano: Yes and No.
Jill's Comment: Judging by these replies, it looks like my article providing 5 reasons why you need to implement Rel=Author ASAP has come out just in time!
