WordPress SEO by Yoast
Optimizing rel="author" behaviour (1 post)

    WordPress SEO version: 3.5.1

    When using WP About Author plugin, the static part of the link to social profiles is automatically concatenated to the value in the user profile page. This seems only logical: you just provide your ID (as you do with Twitter) and the plugin does the rest.

    This is inconsistent with SEO's behaviour. Hence, either one must have a broken link in 'About author' or unrecognized <link rel="author"/> in <head/>.

    Would it be possible for the plugin to test if the G+ field is a URL or an ID and act consequently?

    Thanks for the marvelous tool and the good work.
