Hey guys,

today I created a Google+ page. I would like to use my ThemeForest profile url instead of my website url and it would be nice to have the possibility to verify it.

Hey

I am so happy see more of our authors on G+. Just quickly wanted to let you know that at this stage we are not planning to adding author G+ brand pages as verified pages to the Marketplace.

One of the main reason for that is the fact that Google has not clearly specified how it plans to use the rel publisher tag yet. They don’t have any clear documentation around it ( the page which used to have some info on it is no longer available ). From what I recall the rel publisher association helps a business create a shared identity by linking the business’ website to the business’ Google+ Page and from the initial plan it looked like they seem to only talk about it as a one-to-one relationship.

You can still take ownership of your item via the author tag as specified here : http://notes.envato.com/authors/take-ownership-of-your-marketplace-items-via-g-authorship/. I hope this help :)

Thats my Google! Move info from Page A to Page B and make sure it’s hard to find the new page.
