Web Author HTML Tag

As a web professional you can work on tens, hundreds maybe even thousands of websites in your career. Those websites are the fruits of your or your company’s labor and can act as a road map of your programming career. This can be especially true for freelancers who want to show proof to prospective clients of their work on other projects. In order to help developers “sign” their works there is the HTML meta tag <web_author>.

Include this tag within your page <head> tag.

<meta name="web_author" content="Your Name/Company Name, contact@company.com" />

For example on this page you can view the source (Control+U) to see my <web_author> tag.

<meta name="web_author" content="Jason Tipton, FrontLineDev, jason@frontlinedev.com" />

A quick thank you to Alex Kuhl for telling me about the web_author meta tag!
