What happen if 2 authors linked to a same content? Because I have some old content linked to my old profile which I have lost the password, now I added a new author link under another Google+ profile under Contribute link. Will this conflict?

I have tried to set up google authorship for months and can't seem to get it to work. When I use the google tool to check it says it's set up correctly but it still isn't showing up. Here are my results: http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets?q=www.susanmarshallva.com. If you have a moment to check can you please look and provide feedback? Thanks, Susan

I am very happy that i got this great info about Google authorship.
Now here is my research and my story.
I was fedup with the authorship actually becz it took me 5 hours to figure out. I will tell you what exactly the problem that i faced. And the best thing is that i got the solution from your site. I am going to follow you back and m really really happy that at last i got my answer on this blog very honestly.
I read Google support and some videos to check how to setup google authorship, but the problem was i tried checking with the Structured Data Testing Tool but i always saw that my authorship is not being established. I tried for several hours damn.The time it took becz first i had been working on my spain client for 2 hours, then i tried and tried with the blog to configure here and there but still it was not working.
Then then other 3 hours i was working on my own blog and website to check why the hell its not working. I check videos and some blogs all were telling the same stuff.
I even changed my username via a plugin, then i changed my nickname etc - But still its getting failed!
Damn i was so angry but i decided not to leave but to do more research. And thankfully i came to your website, i felt there was something different in the code which Google has given and which you have given. Now that was the key. After 5 hours of work and research i put the code which you had in ur post.
And Whola!!!!!!!! I got my authorship accepted
Where is the problem then ?
This google support site https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/1408986?expand=option2
Now when you got to the 2nd option to get verified, Google have mentioned the code as under
<a href="https://plus.google.com/109412257237874861202? rel=author">Google</a>
Becz of this code i was damn not able to verfiy, see the difference in the code.
I used your code in the post which you have mentioned, and it worked both in my site and in my blog.
So i would point out plz ask Google to change this code and use ur code, becz google's code made me waste my 5 hours. Had i got your blog first i would have achieved it much earlier!
Thank a lot i am going comgin to you blog for the wonderfull information you have given.
Your Site ROCKS MAN!!!!!!

If you want to jump start your authorship profile go back to all the articles posted by/about you over the past year and have the site link the article to your Google+ profile. This can be a great way to increase your author rank right off the bat.

not sure on drupal but its a cinch in WP- there are numerous highly effective free plugins to do it for you.
I believe the one we use is called google-author-information-in-search-results
Got my picture in the organics in a few days, which means you know its working

How would I do this for a CMS site? WordPress or Drupal?
