  • Edwin Jonk: You can use them together. However the rel publisher only needs to be on the home page. While the rel author should only be used on psges like articles (not on product pages for example). Also a site can have different rel author on different pages while the rel publisher should be the same.
  • Amit Kumar: Thanks + ;

  • Justin Y: Not sure if the rel author tag has any value these days but you can apply like +​ has suggested.
