Is it possible to transfer Google Authorship from one account to another?
I have user A who is a legitimate Google Author in my WordPress site. When I search the 'keyword' in Google, his name and photo will show up in the search result.
One day A left the company, so we don't want to use his name again as an author, and transfer it to another person which is B.
Technically speaking, I can just alter the display name and Google+ Profile URL of A to B. And then I probably can notify Google of the changes happening.
But what will happen then? Will Google get confused and think that I'm doing scam? Is doing this action even correct in the first place?
