Rel=auth, Rel=me Rel=me Can Go On Other Social Media Profiles, Not Jus
Posted 21 September 2011 - 03:29 PM
I know it consists of a:
Link from your article or blog post to your author page using rel="author'
Link from your author page to Google profile page using rel="me"
Link from your Google profile page to your author page using rel="me"
Now, more than a few articles say social media profiles [not just your Google profile], so you can have the rel=me in links from Twitter, Facebook, etc.does not have to be Google + specifically or does it? A sample of articles below:
Here is why I am asking. We have third party validated content sites that we sell subscriptions to. For every article, there is an abstract page describing the article that sits outside the firewall. [Here is an example of an abstract page [http://www.hrexpertonline.com/article.cfm?id=5840&promo=] I would like to have our authors [the people who write these articles] get added viability in the index via rel=auth rel=me convention. Our editors do a yomen's job getting this content developed and so if we have options in regards to the social media profile that we use in this, it would make selling the whole thing alot easier to the product director and head of editorial.
Next, what happens when two authors or a group of author write an article, how does it work then?
Thanks in advance. DJKay

I've done it on my About Us page where I link to my various profiles.
Also, when I write an article, and I have the byline: By Jill Whalen I link my name to my About Us page using the rel=author attribute. You can see that on any of my recent articles in the Newsletter Archives.
As I mentioned in the other thread, I haven't noticed it doing anything yet, but I'm hopeful that over time my pic will start to appear next to my articles in Google's SERPs.
