    Good info Danny, the whole authorship thing has been very complicated with unclear instructions from google for close to a year now

    I just wish I knew what kind of time frame I was working in! I helped a client add the rel=”author” tag to their blog and within two weeks the rich snippets were showing up. I’ve had the tag on my own blog for months and while the structured data testing tool tells me it’s working I have yet to see the rich snippets.

    There are @helgesverre look for the WordPress plugins for google authorship. You still need to add some code directly to the sites though I believe. Look for authorship signatures. There are mixed reports on this one but it works ok

    All you need is WordPress SEO by Yoast.

    Agreed, in my experience Yoast has proven to be one of the simplest tools to use when associating Google Authorship with your account.

    How is Google’s Authorship different from Disqus?

    it almost feels like Google is not taking publishers seriously, switching a page from a company publisher to an author has had positive results in SERPS
