Google Authorship – rel=”author”
As i was reading up today i realized that i have been telling folks for a while now about Google Authorship, and i was reminded by Bronson Harrington within a comment about doing so. So here is a simple step by step guide layed out by the folks over at YOAST.
“My buddy Arjan discovered yesterday that Google is now allowing rel=”author” markup through a <link> element in the head of your site. This makes adding rel=”author” to your site properly a lot easier,”
3 step process:
- Add the above link to the <head> of the URLs you’d like your face to appear on.
- On your Google+ profile, you need to make sure to have a link pointing back to the site you want the author highlight to work on.
- Make sure your +1′s are public on your Google+ profile or it won’t work.
Yes its that simple to do and not what i expected. So it should look like this:
<link rel="author" href="http://plus.google.com/101236821655490344517"
