Google has come up with another great feature for all bloggers and webmasters. Try the Google Verified Authorship, which is the ticket to get featured in search engine results. You can highlight yourself by having an image next to each link of your site that will appear in the search result. Syed Faizan Ali shows you how you can become a verified author.
- Create first Google Plus Account then set up Profile. You should have an account in Google+ because it is where Google will get your information – image, name, etc. to their search results.
- Link Google Plus Profile to your Blog Author Page. To verify that you are the true holder of the blog, you need to connect your Google+ account to your website. Add the following links provided by Ali so you place it in any place you prefer
- Add this code to any place you want
<a href="Google_Plus_Link" rel="author" target="_blank"> Join me on Google+</a>
Replace the highlighted Google Plus Link with your own.
4. Make an About Page and link it to your site.
<a rel="author" href="http://www.mybloggerlab.com/2012/05/some-thing-about-author-syed-faizan-ali.html">About</a>
5. In your About Us Page, insert your picture – 128px width, 128px height in JPEG format. Insert the link below in the first line of your About Us Page
<a rel="me" href=https://plus.google.com/107381172453188253394 title="Syed Faizan Ali">Syed Faizan Ali</a>
Change Ali’s Google+ profile link and name with your own.
