Have you seen your thumbnail photo online next to the title of a blog post? Your eyes go right to it. Yes, I claimed authorship to my site. Is that important? It probably is to many bloggers. To me, the fact that a photo is visible and it catches the attention of whoever is searching is worth a bundle.
I’ve been told that the process of creating Google authorship is simple. To me, the word “simple” means picking up the phone and dialing a "techie person" to accomplish this “simple” task. That’s simple!!! It’s not only “simple” it’s one less thing for me to devote hours trying to figure out.
If you haven’t seen your photo next to the title of your post, you know that whoever has a photo on that page will be getting the phone call from that potential client before you!!!! That’s pretty simple to understand!!
I still consider myself technology challenged, but I sure do know how to use the phone to call a techie person. I also know that I want my photo on the SERP so my phone will be the one to ring before that of others. It's "simple" to understand, and it all makes sense to me. How about you? Thanks, Bill Gassett!!!
