You can help our algorithms understand your pages better by following these recommendations:
use schema.org “article” markup,
provide authorship markup,
rel=next and rel=prev for paginated articles (also watch out for common rel=canonical mistakes),
provide information about your organization’s logo,
and of course, create compelling in-depth content.
- My visitors do not see schema markup
- My visitors do not see authorship markup
- My visitors do not see rel next and rel prev tags
- My visitors see the logo just fine
- I provide the best content I can
I guess 1 out of 5 isn't bad, if you're a visitor. I have yet to see any site suddenly rank better because they followed any of the first 4 recommendations, perhaps I'd spend my resources making Google's life easier if it actually changed something.

Click on the first example Google gives from Salman Rushdie of the New Yorker, you'll see nothing but ads above the fold and a popup ad covering part of the navigation bar. Look at the code and it's 7256 lines long with more whitespace than I've ever seen! Hardly a good example of code imo.
We'll see, I'll check the top results for markup, now excuse me while I get back to my Panda hunt...
and improves the chances of it appearing in this new set of search results.
