So, Niall, how does Author Rank compare to Bing's tag feature? I did a post on that recently, but it seems to be more of a social feature since it's tied to Facebook membership. As for claiming the enormous amount of content I've got out there through Author Rank, it's definitely on the agenda!

Bing's tag feature is more to do with social search than SEO. Thanks for reading, Shawn!

Niall: Thanks for explaining the autorank in a simple way. When do you think that Google will do this automatically? We are more and more drawn into Google's ecosystem. ;) Have you heard that Bing and Klout are joining forces? It will be an interesting battle to watch! ;)

Niall, I'm thankful that you gave us a little overview on author rank. Honestly, I haven't been much paying attention to it.

Author Rank is acting already, simply it is at its early stages. But if you don't jump on it right now, you will need to make a bigger effort after, when everybody will go for it.

Doing author rank is not because it makes you rank better, but because - as it is easy to see from list of signals - it is the same than doing real Content based SEO or Inbound Marketing.

Thanks for sharing!
