The most common way of doing this I have found is just adding a rel="me" 
to the page owners hcard some examples in the wild are :

Social networks:

<a class="url homepage" rel="me" 

<a class="url" rel="me" href="http://csarven.ca/">http://csarven.ca/</a>

<a target="_blank" rel="me nofollow" class="url" 

Blogs and home pages:
<a class="url" rel="home me" href="http://www.ablognotlimited.com">A 
Blog Not Limited</a>

<a href="http://kevinmarks.com" rel="me" class="url fn n uid">
    <span class="given-name">Kevin</span>
    <span class="family-name">Marks</span>

<a rel="me" class="url" href="http://adactio.com/">Adactio</a>

Hope that helps

Best wishes
