No wonder his presentation received lots of positive feedback in social media.

She covered the tools which help check site accessibility, track conversions and recommended top experts to follow. All in all, it was very informative and useful presentation. Thank you, Kim!
We should note that Google plus was a hot topic during the whole Pubcon. Mark Traphagen presented the study of mysterious disappear of Authorship results in Google Search which took place during December 2013. As it turned out, Google is using some kind of scoring of content quality which helps it estimate the authors’ articles and there are other factors Google considers during the rankings.
