My Posts on Writing a Guest Blog Post and Writing a Book

Before you send that email to me or another blogger offering to do a guest post, do a little homework. Then write a persuasive request.

Posts by Others on the Cancellation of Google Authorship

Here are two posts responding to Google’s cancelling of Google Authorship.

From Sonia Simone: The Right Way to Think About Google

“The Authorship program, which would let Google rank content according to the authority of the person who created it, was nuked on Thursday afternoon at the end of the business day on a Google+ thread.”

From Chris Crum: Were Your Google Authorship Efforts All For Nothing?

“Google introduced authorship support over three years ago, leading webmasters and anyone concerned with SEO to jump through a new set of hoops to make sure their faces were visible in Google search results, and hopefully even get better rankings and overall visibility in the long run. Now, Google has decided to pull the plug on the whole thing.”
