There are a number of factors in place to how authoritative an author is, such as the number of followers you have on social networks, and how often the content you publish gets shared.

There are 3 secrets that can be broken down into different sections.
Secret #1 – Social Media Presence Improvement
If you have produced quality content, then now is the time to start shouting about it. I mean literally, get on Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and share it. The chances are that at least one person will pick it up and comment, and as soon as you get that comment it will start the ball rolling for you.

If you have something interesting and controversial to say then you are likely to get that content shared, retweeted and +1’d.
- How often is your content shared?
- How quickly is your content shared?
- Who shared your content?
- Did those who shared your content have expertise in that topic?
- Do the same people always share your content?
Secret #3 – Stand On The Shoulders Of The Pro`S
If there is a collection of influential people in the sector you are writing for, then reach out to them for their thoughts or comments. One comment, retweet or +1 from someone that has a big presence in your industry could be the ideal starting point.
Just like reaching out on Twitter with @NAME you can do the same on Google+, just swap the @ with a +
- How often is your content endorsed? (+1, Like, RT’d)
