If you haven’t already entered our Google Authorship contest, it’s not too late to do it. You are guaranteed to win a free featured agent ad on Point2 Homes. Additionally, one lucky contest participant will win a one-year subscription to Point2 Agent Professional.
Dozens of Point2 Agent subscribers have entered the contest, and results are already showing up.
Let’s try a general real estate related search on Google, like “port elgin real estate.” As you can see, jasonsteele.ca is showing up with an enhanced result:
Or let’s try “north okanagan real estate:”
These are all enhanced results made possible by a proper authorship implementation. This means more traffic to the agents’ websites, as they stand out from regular search results. It is estimated that the click-through rate of search results that show a person’s photo next to the link – as shown above – can be increased by 30% or more! Looking for other ways to use Google+?
