Get More Links in Search Results with Google Authorship

Google Plus LogoRegister your Google Authorship with ActiveRain and get three more links in Google Search Results (SERPS)  

Really important news on Search Engine Land on Google adding additional benefits for authors who register for Google Authorship.    Here is a link to the article on how to get more links in Google with Google Authorship.

As reported today, here is how it works:

1. Register your Google Authorship on ActiveRain.  It is SUPER EASY.  Do it now and it will have long-term benefits.

2. The consumer sees your picture in the search results and clicks on your blog post via Google.

3. Consumer spends roughly 2 minutes on your blog and then clicks BACK to Google. (A bounce in search engine language)

4. BUT, now the consumer will see ANOTHER THREE links to other blog posts you have written.   

Google is trying to get the best content in front of the consumer and increase their stickiness with the consumer.  Now if the consumer reads your blog post and enjoys it (spending two minutes on your blog post), Google will now show an additional three links to other blogs posts that you have written.

Pretty cool.

Just to be 100% clear, I have not seen this work for me as I have tested it.  Google may be rolling this out slowly.  Below is the picture from Search Engine Land showing how it works.
