We are entering an era of context. Search is no longer just about keywords; it is now about ideas.


Creating content that matters has never been more important. Quality is finally going to be rewarded!


"Google Plus authorship and author rank are hot topics in the content marketing world. At last year’s Pubcon, Matt Cutts said that Google would be working towards authorship only for high quality authors (hear it here). This means that it isn’t just about the markup anymore – your author reputation must be high quality to count. In this post, we’re going to look at what it takes to build a quality authorship profile for yourself, and how to get writers with quality authorship profiles to write for your blog so you can have results like these in search." - Kristi Hines
