Google+ Authorship Attained by Jason McDonald of JM Internet Group
PR Log - Mar 06, 2012 - Fremont, CA -The JM Internet Group (web: jm-seo.org), a leader in providing Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Social Media classes online, is proud to announce that their fearless leader, Jason McDonald has managed to achieve "authorship" status through Google+ in critical keyword searches. Authorship merely means telling Google who is the author of a particular post on the Internet. Having your picture not only makes you look cool. It means people will see you, check you out on Google+, thereby getting you more Google+ followers… And then once you have more followers, you can also get higher on the search rankings for your target keywords. And people are clearly more likely to click on listings on Google that have pictures.
"Authorship matters for SEO because Google is enabling the search social web," said Jason McDonald, Senior SEO director of the JM Internet Group. "This is truly one of the most exciting new developments in SEO: authorship, and the related rich snippets."
