How to embed Google+ code with your blog

In my last post “Importance of Author Rank in SEO“, I explained the benefits of building Author Rank in SEO, and in this post, I will share how you can use the Google+ code with your blog so that the Google search results will show your author rich snippets for your posts.

Assuming that you already have your Google+ account and you have done the necessary settings as I explained in my previous posts, now you need to go to your Google+ profile and copy the URL of your profile for eg. https://plus.google.com/100111433778526429317 Once you have this link, you may go to your blog and insert it with your name at the bottom of posts for eg.

Author: <a href=”https://plus.google.com/100111433778526429317?rel=author”>Bhupesh Kalra</a>

Once you have it done, you may wait for a couple of days for Google to index it and show your author rich snippet in search results however you may test it out yourself instantly through the tool http://google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets like I have done for myself (you may see below):


If this tool shows you a result like the above, then you have done it correctly.

And yes, please do not forget to read the benefits of the author-rich snippet in my next post.
