if you want to do the same with your site, there’s a full instruction from Google that shows you how to do this.
However, if you want to see how I did it on my site, you can continue reading.
Get Your Author Photo And Google+ Profile in Search Results
first of all, you must create a google+ profile to do this. it’s also important that you put a photo of yourself with a recognizable head shot. When you’re done, do the steps below.
Step 1 – Make Sure Your Name And Email Address appears on each page that you are the author, Like this:
- I recommend you get this information right next to your post title (like what you see on this blog)
- The Email is optional (but I recommend you include it cause I find it faster when you do)
- the “By” line is really important. make sure you preface your author name with it.

this one is easy. you just simply add the Google+ badge inside your site. you can get the google+ badge here. And follow Google’s instruction how to install it on your site.

Alternatively, you can directly link to your Google+ profile like this (if you do not like the badge)
[profile_url]with the your Google Profile URL, like this:
<a href="https://plus.google.com/112707173614344379386? rel=author">Google</a>
if you’re going with this method, your link must always contain the ?rel=author stuff to make sure google pick up your author info.
Step 3 – Add Your Email Address on Google+
Login to Google+ and
- click on “Profile”
- and then hit “edit”
- Then Click “about”
