Why Do I Need Google Authorship Tags
Using the rel="author" tag on any content from your company allows anyone to find all your content easily. This helps increase exposure and clearly attribute all your content to your personal and business brand. The author tags are a boon to SEO as well. The term author rank emerged in 2012 and it is widely expected that Google will start using authorship information as a signal for search. Finally the rel="author" tag allows Google to create enhanced search results, include your photo and link to your author profile. This draws attention to your results and helps improve your conversion rate versus other results without authorship information.
