Rel Author and Google+

This week we’ve made a simple yet effective change change to our site regarding the

rel author

tag and our Google+ account. You may of seen individuals Google+ profile pictures appearing in Google search results and wondered how they appeared. The implementation is incredibly straight forward and your profile picture should appear within search results after a matter of days or week.

Use the below for information;

Create a link to your Google profile from your webpage, like this:
Google
Replace [profile_url] with the your Google Profile URL, like this:
Google
Your link must contain the ?rel=author parameter. If it’s missing, Google won’t be able to associate your content with your Google profile.
