    Does It Matter If Google Knows Who Posted a Blog Article?

    Iíve read that Google is experimenting with methods to be able to determine the identity of the person who is producing the content on a page. On my website, we have a generic ďAdminĒ listed as the author on all blogs. We do not use Google Authorship, but I heard thatís no longer a ranking factor. Should we take steps to show whoís writing each post? For example, by adding a photo, a name, Google Authorship, and/or linking to the Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ accounts of the writer?

    I'm not educated enough to give you a 100% answer, but it makes user experience better - also makes you look more professional, so yes you should do that.

    Hi, As we can see that google is moving in a direction of offering quality content that creates real value for the user. SO to say, the identity of the user is not a issue for now.
    But we can project in the future it might become a criteria for google to rank it's content. A small glimpse can be understood by the relation of social media has with the content on your site. It will be better if you could add an identity to your user account.
