2. Google+ Authorship is becoming a filter for quality content
Google has been fighting a war against bad quality content for most of its existence. Content that is poor quality and irrelevant but rises to the top of search results because of clever manipulation of the underlying Google search algorithm does a disservice to Google’s brand – and they know it.
Enter Google Authorship, a method of connecting your Google+ profile to your blog and other places where you publish content on the web, so you can help Google find your quality content.

Last week, Google showed me the internal map and demonstrated how it was built- the first time the company has let anyone see how the project it calls GT, or "Ground Truth," actually works.
Google opened up at a key moment in its evolution. The company began as an online search company, but then the mobile world exploded. Now, where you're searching from has become almost as important as what you're searching for. Google responded by creating an operating system, brand, and ecosystem that has become the only significant rival to Apple's iOS.
And for good reason. If Google's mission is to organize all the world's information, the most important challenge -- far larger than indexing the web -- is to take the world's physical information and make it accessible and useful...
