  1. I agree with you completely that this is a very nice plugin to showcase your authorship about the latest posts in your portfolio and this will also help in establishing your online presence?

    But, I was thinking of a negative effect this might have. It might drive the visitors away to your competitors’ blog or probably another blog and thus increasing your bounce rate. It is also possible that the visitor might not return to your blog.

    So, what do you think about this? Any suggestions to drive them back to the blog and keeping them engaged there?

  2. Sameer, that’s a valid concern however I think we need to see the bigger picture here. It is true that you are driving visitors away from your site in that particular instant, but overall they understand that they are getting more value from your site due to this extra content that you are pointing them too, so they are more likely to return to your site in another session when seeking such content.
