How Google Authorship will continue to change the search paradigm

This year, Google Authorship will truly take hold and begin to reshape the search landscape. With the bridge that it provides across Google’s products and services, Google+ has outgrown its social network pants and now serves as a platform for authors to verify their contributions to a website domain.
