Google Authorship Search Snippet: Evolution + Changes

  1. 1. GOOGLE AUTHORSHIP: SEARCH SNIPPETS By Ann Smarty @seosmarty Brand Manager at Internet Marketing Ninjas Founder of MyBlogGuest.com Co-founder of ViralContentBuzz.com
  2. 2. THE EVOLUTION @seosmarty
  3. 3. June 2011: FIRST EXPERIMENT WITH SELECTED AUTHORS. AUTHOR PHOTO IS ON THE RIGHT @seosmarty
  4. 4. October 2011: THE AUTHOR PHOTO IS MOVED TO THE LEFT; CIRCLE COUNT, «ADD TO CIRCLES» AND «COMMENTS ON G+» ARE ADDED TO THE SEARCH SNIPPET @seosmarty
  5. 5. 2012 «MORE BY AUTHOR NAME» IS ADDED «COMMENTS ON G+» IS REMOVED. @seosmarty
  6. 6. April 2013: «MORE BY» IS REMOVED (CLICKING ON THE PHOTO OR AUTHOR NAME WILL SEND YOU TO THE SIMILAR RESULTS AS «MORE BY» USED TO). @seosmarty
  7. 7. NOTE: IN LOCAL GOOGLE VERSIONS THERE’S NO WAY TO GET TO «MORE BY» RESULTS AS BOTH THE PHOTO AND THE NAME LINK TO AUTHOR’S G+ PROFILE (The above screenshot is from google.co.uk) @seosmarty
  8. 8. THE TYPES @seosmarty
  9. 9. AUTHORSHIP RESULT + VIDEO RICH SNIPPET @seosmarty
  10. 10. AUTHORSHIP RESULT + REVIEW RICH SNIPPET @seosmarty
  11. 11. AUTHORSHIP RESULT WITH NO CIRCLE INFORMATION @seosmarty
  12. 12. 2 SAME-AUTHOR RESULTS PER ONE SERP: ONLY ONE GETS A PICTURE! (THIS HAPPENS VERY SELDOM: MORE OFTEN THAN NOT, IF TWO OF YOUR VERIFIED RESULTS GET RANKED, ONLY TOP ONE GETS AUTHORSHIP RICH SNIPPET) @seosmarty
  13. 13. AUTHORSHIP RESULT WITH NO PHOTO (USUALLY THIS HAPPENS WHEN YOUR AUTHORSHIP RESULT HAS BEEN ONE OF THOSE 10-15% TO BE DROPPED) @seosmarty
  14. 14. AUTHORSHIP RESULTS IN INDEPTH ARTICLES SECTION (FIRST ANNOUNCED IN AUGUST 2013) @seosmarty
  15. 15. OUTSIDE of GENERAL SEARCH @seosmarty
  16. 16. AUTHORSHIP RESULTS IN GOOGLE NEWS (FIRST ANNOUNCED IN NOVEMBER 2011) @seosmarty
  17. 17. AUTHORSHIP RESULTS IN GOOGLE IMAGE RESULTS (FIRST ANNOUNCED OCTOBER 2013) INSTEAD OF SHOWING WHO THE IMAGE AUTHOR IS, IT SHOWS WHO THE AUTHOR OF THE ATTACHED ARTICLE IS (BROKEN!) @seosmarty
