What's The Differences Between Google Authorship & Publisher?
Have you ever wondered about the differences between #googleauthorship
and publisher? Well, I've tried to analogise for you and, thanks to +Elena Montes Casado

My take on Authorship and Publisher is that Authorship is for unique content written by us human beings whereas publisher is the preserve of the collective, or entity, that houses the authors.
One analogy for this is a magazine. A magazine can have articles from lots of authors and so each article would have Authorship associated with it. All of these authors articles are collectively published though by the magazine and as such the magazine has publisher markup in place.

Whilst there are a few differences between Authorship & Publisher they have a lot of similar advantages such as increased click through rate, more visibility, more trust and can reduce the chances of plagiarism.
