Optimize your site for author reporting on BuzzSumo

in FAQsGetting StartedTop Author Reports

If your site’s author information is not displaying correctly, please check the following tags to make sure our crawlers can correctly index your authors:

We extract the author if found in any of these tags:

<meta property="article:author" content="AUTHOR NAME">
<meta property="twitter:creator" content="TWITTER USERNAME"> (author name will be full name of twitter user)
<a rel="author">AUTHOR NAME</a>
<meta name="author" content="AUTHOR NAME">
<[ANY TAG] itemprop="author">AUTHOR NAME</[ANY TAG]> (ANY TAG can be p, span, a, etc.)
Otherwise, we try to infer it by looking for a byline: by AUTHOR_NAME.
