Google Authorship


(Chris Mohritz) #1

Hey guys, I didn’t see any existing discussions around this…

Are there any plans to allow users the option of attaching authorship markup to their topics? ie. adding their Google Plus ID/URL into their profile and then tacking the respective rel=“author” / rel=“me” into the code.

I expect you’d probably want to limit this to higher trust levels.

Could make for a “nice-to-have” for frequent contributors.

Thoughts?

Authorship markup is no longer supported in web search.
