Things change rapidly in the WordPress world. The content in this post is more than a year old and may no longer represent best practices.
Instead of having a general WordPress Q & A at the March 2012 Meetup, we had extra time for questions about Structured Content, a topic that takes a bit of getting to grips with.
Here are some links relating to that discussion.
The rel=author problem in WordPress
- Joost de Valk’s August 2011 article: rel=”author” and rel=”me” in WP and other platforms
- Plugin: Google authorship for multiple writers
- Plugin: Allow rel= and HTML in author bios
Note that whether this works for you and how long it takes is entirely up to Google. It took 7 months before Dave started getting credit for his posts.
