Google on the importance of signatures for trust in articles


Lily Ray asked Google’s John Mueller what happens if the author of a content doesn’t want their name on the content for fear of harassment or worse. If you omit the author’s signature or will it hurt this page in terms of ranking.

Here is Lily’s question and it is sad that some people are afraid to put their name on the content they believe in. But this is the world we live in.

John replied that it is basically better to have the author’s signature on the articles because users will trust him more, but you can do whatever you need to do.

Some might alias the author to protect them, but would that help or hurt trust?
