Anyone think google authorship has an effect on seo?

We've added it to my sites blog as recommended by an seo company working with my site. Coincidentally we did get a little more traffic over the next few days up until now, it could be a coincidence though with other factors but was curious if anyone thought it made a difference or not. At the very least maybe it makes posts look more legitimate to see who's writing the articiles and probably couldn't hurt at least.

    I think it does help, but not too much. When I added it to one of my sites it helped slightly, I think it just gives more trust and helps make Google realize there is someone behind the site willing to let people know who they are.

    No drawback.... Probably some (little) traffic. Adds to credibility and trust which makes it worth it.... I did it a short time ago and so far so good....
