Google Author and Publisher Tags
March 4, 2013 - Information Resources
Google is piloting the index of author and publisher information in search results to help users discover content created by you on the various blogs and news sites on which you contribute. Adding an “author” tag to your blogs and news articles, or a “publisher” tag to your corporate news articles, press releases, and informational resources (such as this one) can help link users to additional articles on your site, or other sites, which you’ve written. The advantages to these new tags are apparent, especially considering how easy they are to implement.
