I have some questions about Google +:
1) If your company wants you to create a separate profile from you personal account under their brand page (email email@example.com instead of your personal account firstname.lastname@example.org), is there a way that Google can know that those are the same people so the author rank of both profiles is combined?
2) In the scenario above, if the employee leaves the company at some point, can that person merge the two accounts or at least transfer the business account to a new email for that persons new company?
3) Is it good practice to put an rel=author tag for a brand on each page of content that the company produces (all Web pages of the site that have content)?
Thank you! I am presenting at OMS in Feb in San Diego and I would really like to share the answers to these questions as many of my clients have asked them.
