High Rankings Question of the Week

January 11, 2012

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!

I did it shortly after it was introduced a few months ago. It didn't give results immediately but apparently needs a maturing period just like search rankings. It seems to work quite well now. Just Google my name to get an idea what it can do.

Have generated mine already. Got it started when I first read one of your articles on it. I am currently writing an article myself on it with some other extra added goodies such as covering how to use Article Base as well for connecting a profile form Article Base to Google+ I mentioned you in my article as a source along with Google as well. Hope this is fine by you. Linked to one of your articles on the topic. Will be a good quality and relevant link for you.
