Protect Your Online Presence

Posted on September 30th, 2011 by Victoria Pal in Tech

Protect your online presenceGoogle have recently come up with a new feature called “Authorship markup” which, they say, will connect the author to the particular content in order to give it more credibility.

The Authorship markup encourages quality content by helping out its authors to rank better in the search results, according to Sagar Kamdar, Google Product Manager. For this purpose, the markup connects the web content to a Google Profile of its author and then – back to the particular web page. This way the content shows up in the search results, the author is identified, and the reader even sees a photo of the author displayed alongside, when an image is available. Content then looks more trustworthy and credible, and the website content is more protected.

The Problem

In this realworld situation, a business lost roughly 30% of their leads for July. Apart from their initial loss, they simply handed out a good portion of the market to their competitors, in high season. When the figures arrived, all hell broke loose. All major markets felt the downturn. In search for a logical explanation, hours of daytime were invested in finding the reason. After it was made clear that the traffic was stable, the management went on to search for answers somewhere down the line. The marketing team had to pull out detailed reports for their activities in the last three months. Seasonal sales people got numerous tests calls. A full-scale internal audit took place. This caused a ripple effect and the normal workflow was seriously disrupted.
