Yoast SEO
rel="author" does not appear on static home pages (3 posts)

    WordPress version: 3.5
    WordPress SEO version: 1.3.4

    I did this:
    Went to Titles & Metas > Home and selected the name in the "Author highlighting" box, and added Google+ page URL in the "Google Publisher Page" box. Then I went to the "Users" section under "Contact Info" and added the Google+ URL in the Google+ box

    I expected the plugin to do this:
    I expected the plugin to include the rel="author" in the code on all pages (especially the home page, blog page, and blog post pages), but it only works on blog post pages

    Instead it did this:

    Only includes the rel="publisher" (and that's only on the home page, and blog post pages). The rel="author" is only on the blog post pages. Why doesn't it show up on all pages?

    The way it is now, the blog posts are the only pages that have author verification on Google when I test it using the rich snippet tool at http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets

    I noticed that for sites that do not have a static home page, the plugin adds the rel="author" on the home page; however, it still does not add the rel"author" on other static pages - only blog post pages.

    Anyone out there that was able to get rel="author" on pages that are not blog posts?

    Yes, it is on my pages and posts, but not the home page.
    I'm trying to figure that one out...
