Learn how to use the author rel link tag to improve your site.

The author link element is utilized to point to a web page that provides information about the author of the content on the current page. This can aid in establishing credibility and authorship in search engine results.

Code Examples

<link rel="author" href="https://example.com/about-me">
Points to a detailed about-me page on the same domain, reinforcing the author's credibility.
<link rel="author">
Lacks the href attribute, making the tag incomplete and ineffective.


  • Use on Every Page
    To establish author credibility, ensure an author tag is present on every page that contains written content.
  • Keep the URL Updated
    Make sure that the URL linked to the author page is always accessible and up-to-date. A broken link can hurt SEO and the user experience.
