I've had rel=author and rel=publisher on my site for a year, just as netmeg suggested, but it hasn't stopped my site from being pushed down by mega-sites. Has done nothing for me that I can see except maybe that I don't get outranked by scrapers.
I would like a system that allows the offline authority I've acquired by actually having published books on my subject to boost the authority of my website. It would seem logical.
