Thankfully, Jen Sable Lopez asked the speakers this question for me. Oddly enough, no one had a solid answer!

As an analytics junkie, I’m a big fan of using event tracking wherever I can – I love seeing when people are clicking out to external links. On this site, I use Yoast’s SEO Plugin, which allows for you to automatically include event tracking for every outbound link.
On my homepage, I have a link to my Google+ profile, with rel=”me” implemented, and I have yet to have my “mug appear in the SERPs” for this page.
A fleeting thought I had was that perhaps rel=”me” and event tracking conflict on some level – but I haven’t seen any information to that effect.
What are your thoughts? Leave a comment below – I’d love to start a discussion on this topic.
