    I appreciate all the articles on authorship that have been springing up. It underscores how important it is in promoting your brand; however, I’d really like to see an article about troubleshooting authorship. You indicated that it isn’t very difficult, yet many authors go through the steps, even confirm authorship through Google’s rich snippet tool, and still can’t achieve the mark up, myself included.

    Probably a stupid question… but where do you post the authorship tag? within the article…and/or where is the byline…. we use wordpress in our blog and we just get a WISYWIG editor.

    Hi Todd, I believe the easiest way is to use the rel=”author” tag on the website’s back end (you’ll have to get into the HTML) and then on the author’s end, they add that they are a contributor to the site. http://support.google.com/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1408986&expand=option2 -Kelsey
