Enable your picture to show up in search results for higher clickthroughs - free #google #authorship manual

Authorship is Google’s answer to identifying the true owner of unique content written online so the original author can get the credit they deserve. The Authorship process was brought about for many reasons but one of the simplest was to attribute the ownership of a piece of content which may have been duplicated on the net to the true, original author.
