Event Details

As always, we are the second Tuesday of the month, with networking from 4:30 to 5, we'll have an hour long presentation and Q&A, then another half hour of hang around time.  Hope to see you there!


Many search marketers are at least familiar with term "Google Authorship". If that doesn't ring a bell, we're sure you've seen the personal headshots that have been appearing next to some of the traditional search results in Google. It may seen like a vanity play right now, but authorship is the next big thing in search. Pretty soon, what you (or your clients) do as authors could potentially make or break your success in SEM. In this comprehensive session, Mike Arnesen will cover everything you need to know about Google Authorship, from initial set up to taking steps to build your Google AuthorRank.

Some of the things covered in the session include:

  • What Google Authorship is and why it's going to be a game changer.
  • How to set it up for yourself and your clients.
  • What AuthorRank is and how you can start building it preemptively
  • Is there such a thing a Brand Authorship?  
  • How to get the most out of Google+
