Hi there

We have been looking at G+ and how to go about integrating it on to the marketplace and Google authorship for item pages looked like a great way for us to do that.

G+ Authorship gives you ownership of the item that you have listed on our marketplace. I have pushed out Marketplace blog post outlining how you can get authorship snippet to show up for your items and profile page.

Here are some before and after screenshots of the search result :

If you have any questions regarding this, add a comment in here ( I will be hanging around to answer your questions in the next few days ). Also feel free to get in touch with me on Google+ (+SaijoGeorge) or Twitter (@Saijo_George) if I have not answered your question.

Special thanks to AJ ( WPExplorer ) and Terry for helping me with this.

Don’t forget to add us to your G+ network :

We have a Google+ brand page, would you recommend we use the brand name or one of the founders of the company their Google+ accounts?

What would convert into more clicks? a persons face or a brands logo I guess the question is.

Hi Guys

Google Authorship is for individuals ( not for a brand or a company ) . To take advantage of Authorship you will have to use a G+ account that belongs to a person.

You can have a G+ Brand page and engaging with your followers on that is great but Google does not allow that to be associated with the content they serve up in the search result pages. The only exception being the brand info box that shows up for branded keyword searches.

Done! Lets see how it goes in the long run.

Not too bad for Envato getting all these backlinks from G+ profiles either… ;)

Hey Saijo,

That’s great! Thank you. Have a question.

Is it possible to have both headshot and star ratings for items pages?

Since I’ve activated my google+ account as a contributor to ThemeForest, my headshot is replaced with stars in my item search result…

Not sure but maybe stars are better for item page than my headshot. This way it will look more like a blog page than a product.

Thanks :)
Iman

Friends, just letting you know; you can only use “face” photos within Google Authorship
