Comment on Google Authorship Tutorial by Mark Biernat.
It is just Java, something that is used on almost every website. Yet, I would rather err on conservatism and not activate that feature. I can not see how it would be a penalty as the end use can use this. yet I get a little paranoid.
All that I wrote above do you think I am correct?
So until my worries subside, I will think of another way, either put a Google + link on all my pages (that is a lot of juice leaking) or do something like you recommend, that is have pages linking to my “author page” that links out to Google +.
My smaller sites, not a big deal, but my larger sites with 100s or 1000s of pages, I do not know if I want one page getting that much juice as it might distort the natural flow of things.
Since Panda hit my sites, I have been trying to add content and really improve the quality of my posts. So when I finish an upgrade to a post I do not mind signing my name to that post. Therefore, most of my post will deserve Authorship claims if I upgrade them.
So I have to think about this and weigh my options.
