Proper attribution for user generated content
0
Consider a website where people can post articles, like Medium.

What is the proper way, inside the article page, to qualify a link to the author website?

What is a proper attribution to transfer some page ranking?

Currently you can either:
- use nofollow or ugc, but in this case the raking is not transferred
- not adding nofollow seems a risk, since the link is added freely by the user

I think that Google should consider a rel="author" beside the other values already defined here:


That would definitely help to create a better web, where attributions are more balanced.

Google can then decide to transfer some ranking or not based on the quality of the article / page.

This would also be beneficial for Q&A (e.g. Stackoverflow) that currently steal all the page rank to the original authors.

Ciao Marco,
dato che sei italiano rispondo in italiano (otherwise the english webmaster community is here):
 
Il miglior modo per trasferire l'importanza di un link ad una pagina è non mettergli nessun attributo.
 
Gli attributi servono per essere più precisi, per far capire a Google cose come se il link è promozionale/a pagamento (sponsored o nofollow) o generato dagli utenti (ugc).
 
Altri attributi possono essere utilizzati, ve ne sono molti (ed altre varianti), ma comunque non è la qualità che richiede Google.
 
Altre sfaccettatura della domanda le definisco "speculative" e non permettono di risolvere un problema (la ragione di essere di questa community) quindi accontentati di questa chiarificazione se non ti è chiara.
 
p.s.
Speculative=inutili anche per te, ti fanno perdere tempo e non concentrarti su altro.
 
Buona giornata,
Yuri.
