The next best, you mean ;) I'd say authorship mark-up, and make sure the authors' Google profiles are rich and tied into all the social media where they have a presence.
Then just pull out all the stops you've got - for example, update your xml sitemap immediately and re-submit it. Use social media to draw in visitors to the new page whenever you publish. All the good marketing stuff that scrapers usually don't bother doing.
