Why journalists need to pay attention to Google Author Rank in 2013
Remember back in 2011, when Google linked the Google Plus profiles of journalists to Google News, and folks like Emily Bell, Erik Wemple, Amy Gahran, Megan Garber and I had a cross-platform conversation about it? (OK, probably not.) I thought then that Google integrating Plus with journalism online was probably inevitable. Here we are in 2013, where Google's "Author Rank" is now putting journalists' faces into search results and linking to their Google+ profiles.
