Have you heard of Google Authorship? If you are a content creator then you need to know what Google Authorship is and how it will benefit you. On the surface Google Authorship will place your photo along with your byline in the search results beside your article title.  Just like how video results appear in the search results.  Most people are drawn to the results that contain images as they really catch your eye. It is pretty cool to see your name in the search engine lights! Here is an example of what you might see. Google Authorship is a highly effective way to promote your content and brand yourself as an authority at the same time. They use what is called “Rich Snippets” to gather the information and show the author’s photo (which is attached to the authors Google+ account), full name and the amount of G+ circles they are members of.

[2 Minute Tip] Mini JV Giveaway Event

It has been a few weeks since I posted last but I have been busy testing a new method for generating FLOODS of traffic! I have spent quite some time learning about mini JV giveaway events. What the heck is a mini JV giveaway event you ask? A mini giveaway is where a host has a group of contributors (usually about 6-12) and they all agree to send a predetermined amount of clicks to the event.  All clicks are sent to the event main page where visitors can optin to the event and see the gift page.
