rel-author is for linking from an article or post (e.g. marked up with hAtom) to a page or site representing its author. rel-author is one of several open microformat standards suitable for embedding data in HTML/HTML5, and Atom/RSS/XHTML or other XML.

Contents

Summary

rel="author" is for relating an article or post to a page or site representing its author, typically to give them credit for their work (or portions of it, like books, articles, blog posts etc).

E.g. a page or a post written by a person "Erin Smith" could contain a link like:

<a href="http://erin.example.com/" rel="author">Erin Smith</a>

The rel="author" attribute indicates that the destination of the link represents the author of the current page (or post).

Examples in the wild

Add permalinks of pages using rel=author, with any particularly interesting details about their usage:

The Harpers page is interesting because it uses multiple rel=author, but clearly intends to scope the authorship to the containing div class="article" element. This doesn't follow any spec.

The Variety page is interesting because it uses multiple rel=author, with the intent to scope the authorship to the containing article element (as described in the HTML spec)

An interesting rel="author" implementation set of examples is brought up by Google in a video posted on Youtube:

query parameter alternative

Google has proposed an alternate mechanism for specifying rel=author on sites/CMSs that don't permit authors to specify the rel attribute, using a query parameter added to the URL instead. e.g. the above example with query parameter:

<a href="http://erin.example.com/?rel=author">Erin Smith</a>

This technique is explained in the following video:
