My Thoughts

Add Your Picture to Google Results

While Googling myself I noticed some sites were showing the authors pictures beside them on the search result. Here is the before and after of my site.



Add a link to your header (remember to at ?rel=author on the end of your Google+ profile link)

“In head”
<link rel="author" href="" />

Add the following somewhere on the page

“Anywhere on the page”
By <a rel="author" href="">John Piasetzki</a>

Verify your email address at Wait for google to update


If you run into any trouble you can see whether Google is picking up the author with the Rich Snippet Tool.
