Besides the great point made by Randy I am reading that Google+ and authorship are now a factor for Panda?
- Why would Google+ be an factor for Panda? As far as I know Panda many focus on on-site stuff.
- Why would authorship markup be a factor for Panda? As far as I know authorship hasn`t have any affect on any algo.

In this post at SearchEngineJournal, has declared (actually, regurgitated, incorrectly), with absolutely zero evidence or data, that if you use Google Plus your site will be rewarded by Google! It`s on the internet, so it must be true! Or, one of the most irresponsible and misguided things anyone as ever posted in the history of the internet (although, I have no data to support that statement, but who cares, it`s the internet!)....
