    How do you add a tag/taxonomy to WP? Interested in using the new Google author tag. Seems a natural fit with WP.

    Looking over the forums I could not find an answer.

    It looks like you need to add rel="author" to a link to your author page and rel="me" to a link to a Google profile. - authorship explanation

    Google Authorship has nothing to do with tags/taxonomy as the terms apply in WordPress.

    Essentially, what you do is:

    1) Create a google profile.
    2) Add a link with the rel attribute set to "author" on any content belonging to the owner of the google profile you created.
    3) Fill out a form at Google.

    More detailed instructions are here:
