A good author box benefits all
The perfect author box benefits the creator, the reader, and the search engine. Here are the questions we asked ourselves while testing WordPress free and premium author bio plugins like the Fancier (Fanciest) Author Box.
Does the author bio shine subject matter expertise, trust, and integrity in the creator and their content?
Does the author box look good and work well on different WordPress themes, devices, and browsers?
Does the author box help creators expand their digital audience on platforms like Pinterest, Youtube, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook?
The short answer to all of the questions above is NO. The Fanciest author box –the paid version — did not meet these needs nor did it possess even half of the desired features.
In fact, it was this disappointment that led us to building the Power Bio Box plugin so that all of these benefits (and more) were captured.
While the Fanciest Author Box had good basic features, it fell extremely shy of expectations.

You can ensure every key touchpoint reflects your expertise and credibility, such as your Start Here page, your About page, and your author archive page.
