I’ve put together an article discussing just what the Google authorship program (also know as rel=”author” and author rank) does and how it will benefit your website.
In a nutshell if you want more web traffic and protection from people copying your content and claiming it as your own, then this is something you need to take a look at.
Check our my first article on what google author rank is, and how you can benefit. Shortly I’ll be releasing a second article which actually goes into detail of how to set it up and configure it for your site.
I also discuss Publisher rank (aka rel=”publisher”) and how this differs from author rank and how you can use both to your advantage.
So take a read and if you have any comments, please leave them here or on the article and I’ll respond.
