Google Authorship2 Recommended Answers
So if I am understanding correctly, Google Authorship is really based more on a site that is a blog based site such as blogger.com or Wordpress etc.?
It probably will not function well on sites that i set up for folks as standard HTML Dreamweaver based sites?
In this light, it appears that if I set up a site in Blogger or Wordpress it would allow Authorship to more easily identify the author of each post or the author of the content being shared?
Is my thinking right?
Thank you so much as I really appreciate it. Thanks also for anyone else who chimes in to assist as I learn all i can.
So Authorship can be done on a standard website but it needs to be one that the page is more content heavy. Not like a splash page or a contact us page but something with true content attached to it?
Your Thesis page example is exactly what I am looking for. I assume that is a standard website you set up in HTML and not done as a blog site or a wordpress site. If so, May i ask how you set that up so Google Authorship would recognize it?
Cause how it is appearing on the Google search is exactly what i am after. It shows up nicely with your headline and content but not with a date or time stamp assigned to it.
I have a google + page set up to google authorship and I know I have to add code to whatever HTML page I want used for Authorship. Can you tell me what i can do to achieve the same results you got?
Thanks a million. This is a huge help and I am learning a ton here.
This is actually coded at the very bottom of the page.
Well, the actual code is automated in php like this:
<span class="datemodified"><meta itemprop="dateModified" content="<?php echo "".date("Y-m-d",filectime("index.php"));?>"><?php echo "".date("Y. m. d.",filectime("index.php"));?></span>
And authorship is coded at the top where my name is mentioned (in a bit convoluted way as we put the family name first and the given name last in my language)
Here there is also a date stamp for the original creation but it seems Google is not that interested in it but the last update. :-)
You can inspect the whole source code structure to see what is going on with the markup - or test and analyse the page here:
