Google+ Author Information in Search Results (Free Version)

Replaces the author link with your Google+ Profile Link, adds a special link after every blogpost or adds a special meta tag in your websites HTML hea

I've built another easy and free WordPress plugin. It will help you to integrate a special link into your posts and pages so that Google can match your content with your Google+ Profile. Once this is done your profile picture will appear in Googles search results and/or on Google News. Please note: Google says that there is no guarantee that a Rich Snippet will be shown for your page on actual search results and/or Google News. If your profile picture does not show after some days, please read my answer on Google+ Author Snippet Photo not showing in search.

A) Set up authorship by linking your content to your Google+ profile

  • Create a Google+ Profile (http://plus.google.com)
  • Follow this link to open your Google+ profile: http://plus.google.com/me
  • Copy your Profile-URL from the address bar to clipboard
  • Go to your WordPress Admin Panel and click Users » Your Profile. Paste the above mentioned URL to the field where it says „Google Plus Author Link“.
  • Click Update Profile.
  • Repeat the above steps with all the other WordPress authors on your blog.

B) Add a reciprocal link back from your profile to the site you just updated

  • Follow this link to edit the Contributor To section: http://plus.google.com/me/about/edit/co
  • In the dialog that appears, click Add custom link, and then enter your website URL.
  • If you want, click the drop-down list to specify who can see the link.
  • Click Save.

C) Test

  • To see what author data Google can extract from your page, use the Rich Snippet Testing Tool.

D) Anything doesn't work out?
