Link your Google+ profile to all the content you create for your website and blog.

You can link up all the content you publish on your website and blog on a specific domain (such as to your own Google+ (G+) profile.


Four Tips for Authorship:

  1. You must have a profile photo with a recognizable headshot.
  2. You need a byline containing your name appears on each page of your content (for example, “By Bobbie Grennier“).
  3. Make sure your byline name matches the name on your Google+ profile.
  4. Verify you have an active and valid email address on the same domain as your content. (Don’t have an email address on the same domain? Use  you Gmail account.)

Submitting this form will add your email address to the Work section of your profile, which by default is viewable only by your circles. You can keep your email private if you wish.

It will also add a public link to the domain of the email address to the Contributor to section of your profile.

Google Authorship

Google Authorship is an essential tool to help build your Local rank placement in the Google Local Search results for your set of keywords. Sign up for Authorship here by entering your valid email address.

If you want your Authorship information to show up in search results for your content, you’ll need a Google+ Profile with a good headshot photo for your profile.

Verify authorship of your content by associating it with your profile, but remember that Google doesn’t guarantee to show author information in Google Web Search or Google News results.


Linking Your Content to Your G+ Profile:

  1. Create a link to your Google+ profile from your webpage, like this:
      <a href="[profile_url]?rel=author">Google</a>

    Replace [profile_url] with the your Google+ profile URL, like this:

    <a href="">Google</a>

    Your link must contain the ?rel=author parameter. If it’s missing, Google won’t be able to associate your content with your Google+ profile.

  2. Add a reciprocal link back from your profile to the site(s) you just updated.
    1. Edit the Contributor To section.
    2. In the dialog that appears, click Add custom link, and then enter the website URL.
    3. If you want, click the drop-down list to specify who can see the link.
    4. Click Save.
  3. To see what author data Google can extract from your page, use the structured data testing tool.

Follow this advice to the letter when hooking up your own Authorship because Google is not forgiving when there are mistakes, or you can always hire me to do it right.
