A Service for Those Without the Time or Interest

StepForth is also offering a service to assist small businesses and up with the proper setup and installation of Authorship (rel=author and rel=publisher) so all businesses can experience the expected benefits of Authorship as Google integrates it into its algorithms over time; they are testing its integration already behind closed doors.
