Boosting authorank is sureshot strategy to make sites rank higher; we have seen this recently due to google downplaying link building techniques.
What we are doing
1) google plus
2) FB likes
3) RSS feeds distribution
4) Guest Blogging with links to original article
6) Collation of all archive articles to one particular author
8) ...Your pointer
I don't think Google would agree that it's okay to ascribe articles written by different people to a single author.

Google's attempt to incorporate author reputation (via Google+) into its rankings algorithm
The authors all agreed to setting up Google+ authorship for their articles and within just a few weeks, the scrapers fell away.
Instead, I think that it will mainly serve as a new doorway into the SERPs for spammers like the OP of this thread.
First you say that google algorithm is flawed then you pose to be ethical SEO by deeming our original content collation as spamming.
What is "fake"? Everything in the OP's list, except may be no. 6, is pure and legit marketing.

Should probably be a part of everyone's marketing plan.arikgub - In this case it's all being done to artificially boost a site to higher rankings than it actually deserves on its own merits. Maybe you call that marketing, but I call it duplicity.

And don't make the mistake of thinking that because it was written by someone other than the person presenting it as theirs that it's any less authoritative.
