    Google+ Authorship

    Hello everyone! We are a PTS Multimedia, an advertising agency. I have a quick question about google+ and blog authorship. We are going to be setting up multiple authors that will contribute to our blog so the respected person's picture and author name will show up rather then all of our posts posting as our company.

    My question is, is how to set up and link each one of our google+ pages to the respected blog author pages. I know the rel publisher code needs to be in the blog somewhere but I can't quite figure out where to put it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    rel=publisher won't help to set up those people's authorship. It will claim your brand though...

    For your authors' photos to appear in search results:

    1. Each of your authors needs to have a *personal* Google plus profile
    2. They need to link to your site from "Contributor" section
    3. Each article should link to each personal Google Plus profile with ?rel=author at the end
    To sum up: Verify Authorship Using Google Plus Account ("Contributor to" Section)

    Other recommendations from Google:

    1. Each article should have the same name as the G+ profile it is linking to (By Author Smith)
    2. Author's G+ profile should have a good real photo headshot (no logos, cartoons, etc)
    Everything will be ok in the end

    If it's not ok, it's not the end
