    Great article Barrie. Very helpful and you made a lot of great points. I know it’s usually one of the first things I notice when I do an internet search and most of the time it’s the link I click on.

    Great way for people to know it’s not just some nameless face out there posting something. Everyone needs to take what you taught above it integrate it.

      It’s surprising how many people want to do this, but are afraid it’s too technical. As you can see it’s not that hard. Thank you for your comment Brian.

    Thanks for the specific instructions. I've finished the first part, and look forward to coming back to watch the video and do the second part later on. I knew it was good to have the picture, just wasn't sure how to do it and hadn't taken the time to research it. Thanks for saving me the time, making it easy, and solving the mystery!

    Now we have Google + this is much easier to do than it used to be – it definitely makes a difference to people – they are much more likely to click a link in the SERP if it has a picture of the author.

    Hi Barrie,

    Awesome post and video, this was something I wanted to cover in the challenge last time, but we didn’t get time. 🙂 This is a really great post for people to learn how to do it properly.

      Once it’s changed it takes a little time to show up. If you’ve followed the instructions it should work

    Awesome post Barrie! I discovered Google Authorship over the summer, and since using it, my engagement on my blogs have increased and my Google Circles have expanded as well. Looking forward to reading more of your posts 🙂

    Hi Barrie,

    Good tutorial! Adding an image makes the difference. People need to see you in order to trust you…in most cases 😉

    Thanks for sharing!

    I have managed to set this up for a few sites but cannot get it to work for my own main blog. I have tried all sorts of things. My site is ranked 4 so it is not as if Google does not like it. The only thing I can think of is there is a conflict because of using a subdomain, which I managed to get to work with no problems.

      Subdomains can cause a problem from what I’ve read. It may be the reason that you are experiencing this.

      One step at a time eh Christine? Some understand, some don’t and that’s OK. That’s why I suggested to contact somebody who may know how to do this to help if you don’t understand how.

    If you don’t want your authorship information to appear in search results, edit your profile (using http://plus.google.com/me/about/edit ), and make sure the Profile discovery option Help others discover my profile in search results is unchecked.
