Section: Links >> Link types; Requesting that the link type "publisher" be
reinstated inside the HTML5 specification. The reason is because Google has
adopted this tag as a means of identifying a web site with a corresponding
Google+ business page. It is used in a similar fashion as the "author" type,
only it allows Google to identify a business "publisher" versus an individual
"author". This is described in more detail at:
