WordPress version: 1.4.3
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?
