Display author picture in google search results



If you own a blog , regardless whether it is self hosted or not google offers a new feature to link your blog with the authors goole profile page and there by display author image next to all search results in google

To do this you need

1. Your own blog with admin privileges

2. google plus account

How it works

The technique is simple, google formed this as a loop, ie.

All our pages should carry a link to the author page with a rel tag, (The rel attribute specifies the relationship between the current document and the linked document.), here the current document is the individual page ad the linked page is the author page with in our site, n my case it look like

<a title=”abhilash s nair” rel=”author” href=”http://www.meabi.com/about/”>About</a>

first part is over, now the author page need to link to the authors google plus profile page with rel attribute me, in my case it is

<a rel=”me” href=”http://plus.google.com/u/0/106415727739628184317″>Google Plus Profile</a>

once donr you can verify the procedures here : http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets

provide your site address here


Now after google crawled search results will carry the author profile image in seach results
