Just wondering what some here do to tell SE like google that they're the original author of new articles they publish? When you write a new article, and upload it to your site, is there anything you can do to tell google that you're the original author?
I know about rel="author" but it seems it's mostly used by blogs, can it be used for static html sites?
The rel="author" mark-up is useful for any site that publishes written articles. If your site does have a feed, I also encourage you to use pubsubhubbub, also know as PuSH, and do the "fat ping" option.
