Starbox is the Author Box for Humans. Professional Themes to choose from, HTML5, Social Media Profiles, Google Authorship
While search engines and other software that read your site care about files like robots.txt, you need Human readers to actually engage with your content and fall in love with it.
Humans look at beauty more than anything else (as you most probably already know, men and women alike). That's why you'll get an Author Box that's gorgeous to look at and it makes your readers click all the way through to see more about the Authors.
Now, if you have just yourself as an Author on your site, or a super-star team of Authors, you'll love Starbox. You can choose from the professionaly built themes and landscaping. If you are the super-star type, or want to boost social proof, place your Author Box on top of the page, so that your Human readers will know that they're reading stuff that a real awesome person has written.
How do I hide Powered by Starbox? You can buy Starbox without links and email subscription from: http://starbox.squirrly.co/product/starbox-the-author-box-for-humans/ or Go to your user profile just switch off "Powered By Starbox" (under the social icons). It has a global effect for all the authors.
You want the classy, bottom-of-the-page Author Box? You can choose that one as well.
And if your star Authors want different things, satisfy their needs by allowing them to place their Author Box at the top or bottom, with the default theme, or a better looking one. You can make each of them shine in their own way.
The Social Profiles of your writers will be obvious and clickable, getting you Humans that will engage with content on your blog and also on your social media streams.
Because your authors are stars or will be very soon, Google Authorship and Facebook Authorship are here for them with Starbox, and it's just type->click->boom! to set up. Amazingly easy.
Are you afraid of having to spend too much time setting Starbox up? Don't worry. You're covered by our "For Humans" guarantee. With NO coding or complicated menus whatsoever, you'll set your Author Box in a matter of minutes. And since we took a lot of care regarding all the coding, it will work well and you won't have to worry about that.
You'll build up some good social proof, you'll give your Human readers a sense of quality and they'll be happy to return for more (which will help you with the search engines who track your site).
