    guys before i move on, i would like you to read this article..

    http://site-reference.com/articles/google-chairman-reveals-a-new-ranking-signal-about-to-launch/

    if they introduce authorship, then its literally killing all backlinks.. he has mentioned that, in latest algorithm it will be a signal and person having verified account will rank higher.. what if we have good content and havent verified? does it also rank lower? this is a kind of big tie! A Good Try from google.. but as far as i know only around 1-2% of google users have authorship... any inputs guys? :) correct me if i am wrong.. :)

    Death of link building and blackhat?

    What has blackhat got to do with link building....

    Link building will not die, blackhat methods will not die. Now close this "G**gl end of the world" thread and get back to making money

    point is that, tough to create google email accounts and then again tough to integrate it with plus. phone verification is need. so is it like it gave an end to backlinks?

    in what way will it give creditability to user(Author)? Its what running in my mind..

    if link building is dead then ultimately all web 2.0's are dead.. as it involves link building.. web directories, art directories and bookmarks too... i am confused!

    yes I got the email and read the report and if you look through some google search results you will find people ranking higher because of authorship but as it stands it still looks like another desperate measure by google
    some of those sites should not be ranking at all, so although authorship will become more important in future at the moment I think it can easily be played. backlinks aren't dead yet

    I just closed that BS because it has no real impact than Panda and Penguin.

    Anyone can get an authorship..

    what about sniper site and micro niche sites that we create?

    how google can rank authors? for website we can rely on backlinks or author, for backlinks we can check the sources to determine the quality.. but for authors? only if he is established he can rank higher.. what abt new authors with good contents?

    2-3 years back, i read similar article stating backlinks will have no value and it will be about social signals in future.

    But we all know how important are backlinks in ranking sites these days.

    Authorship is simply another tool. Just like Pinterest, Twitter, FaceBook, SENukeX, Scrapebox, etal.

    Those savvy enough to utilize it will benefit.

    Those who don't, won't

    Just a matter of time before we (blackhat community) develop new ways to beat any algo google introduces. I'm not worried at all.

    Good content and white hat methods does not mean you will be safe from google animal updates. I know. I was pure whitehat and my sites with very very good content can no longer be found.
    So I just use mediocre or average content and go with blackhat tricks.

    All that stuff is easy to do... and already being done. You can't treat everything the same as the lowest common denominator.

    As an example, "Web 2.0s" were being done, with high quality, long before it become trendy for people to sell worthless piece of crap articles and get on that bandwagon. The same goes for all the other methods. I've been link building with high quality, verified-author sites since before it was a thing. Every time some low quality garbage and/or a very specific link-building method becomes obsolete someone is claiming that SEO is Dead. SEO has been around for I guess close to 2 decades at this point, but has gone through many changes.

    LOL. Here in the Philippines they got this cheap brand of mobile SIM card. They cost 10 pesos, which is about a quarter each. I can have around 6 phone-verified google accounts made each (3 by text, 3 by call). So that's 1 GVA for less than a nickel + half minute of time.

    Of course I wouldn't want any of those personal detail verified accounts used for spamming, lol.
