Google has started a project, where one can link own articles to a profile on Google+ and later on get some nice author visibility directly in Google search.
An important thing to make this work, is that there needs to be a by-line with every article.
Good news, is that this is already taken care for in Graphene. But ONLY for blog-posts.
And now, I'd really like to have this option for pages, too.
Perhaps a new setting: Display author information on pages. And a small addition to loop-page.php?
