rel=publisher is not quite the same thing (yet).
Exactly... when these first came about I had all sorts of questions and there really was no definite answer either. Publisher is for the publisher and author is for the author.
So, for a non-personal page... lets use a simple product/company website as an example... what are we supposed to do?
At the moment I use rel=publisher on every page and have it linked to the website/company Google+ page (which must be under my personal account mind you).
Am I the only one who does not want my business/company page personally linked to me should I use rel=author on every page!? I bet not. Furthermore, why would someone want to promote themselves personally instead of the company/brand as is by using rel=publisher?
I just don't get their logic... nor have I understood ANY of their recent logic. The underlining makes sense, but there are LOTS of 'rebuttals' or 'scenarios' where it does just not work/make any sense.
