Author tools

Google is beginning to support authorship markup -- a way to connect authors with their content on the web. Google is experimenting with using this data to help people find content from great authors in Google’s search results.

Google now supports markup that enables websites to publicly link within their site from content to author pages. For example, if an author at The New York Times has written dozens of articles, using this markup, the webmaster can connect these articles with a New York Times author page. An author page describes and identifies the author, and can include things like the author’s bio, photo, articles and other links.

If you run a website with authored content, you’ll want to learn about authorship markup in Google’s help center.
