Default How To Get Your Author Information / Picture In Google's Search Results

HI,

Many people have been asking, "How can I get my picture in Google's search results?" Right, if you search for Matt Cutts why and how does Matt's picture appear in the search results. And more importantly when you do a search for 'Google SEO' why does Mat's content/picture appear on the first page. How can I do that? Here is a quick live example that our company just implemented that I thought I share so you can copy and enjoy the same benefits.

First, read Google's Policy for updates : http://support.google.com/webmasters...answer=1408986

1. Author Page
http://www.tru-serve.com/author/troynorberg/

notice in the source code you will see the rel=”me” on the google plus icon.

2. Category Page
http://www.tru-serve.com/articles/

Note that the “authors” name on each post links to the authors page using a rel=”author”

3. Post Page
http://www.tru-serve.com/maintenance...y-maintenance/

Note that is you view the source code on this page you will see the link rel=”author” in the head tags

4. Google+ About Us Page
https://plus.google.com/113993510095...73743896/about

Notice it links back to his site.

5. YouTube (optional)
http://www.youtube.com/webbizideas

Notice I link back to my Google+ profile from YouTube.com and videos 'can' now appear in the search engines with your Google+ profile

Did the above work?
1. Search for "Troy Norberg" in Google and see if his picture appears
2. If you were signed into your Google Account and followed Troy most related topics you searched for on Troy's site would have a much greater chance in appearing #1 with his picture now.

If you have questions implementing FIRST read Google's policy than please ask

Jeff

No doubt these profiles can help a lot to get good visibility or appearance in search engine because all these sites are authority sites according to google.

I have achieved getting my client picture in the Google search for few keywords. It is good to have a picture in Google search and people will tend to click the result which has a picture in it.

What I achieve is that my own picture appears on the search result of my blog. And I'm happy about it.
