I was a little surprised to get an email a few days ago with the following: “You’re receiving this email because you signed up for the Google Authorship programme. This is a one-off notification and we will not be contacting you further about this issue. You’ve established your Authorship, which means that your photo and a link to your profile can now appear next to your content in search results. Learn more”.  I didn’t recall applying for Google Authorship. But now it’s here I’m glad I’ve got it. The reflector holder attached to the back of my camera bag says ‘Mark Emery Photography – Google for “MARKSE”‘. Now people have an extra verification that the pages they’re about to view are mine.
