We spend lot of time and labor to write an article and share it with the world. But most of our viewers do not try to read out about us or about the author. Now Google has brought a new technology which shows Author name below the article headline. Viewers can see your image and can read your Google+ profile briefly. Below image is an example.
It is very simple process, takes 1-2 minutes to activate your Google Authorship Profile. Follow these bullets and make your visible to the viewers on Google Search.
Bullet 1: Visit https://plus.google.com/authorship.
If you have an email address like email@example.com then just put the email address on the box, which you will find on the above link. Remember the email id should be your website address. It can’t be @gmail.com or @yahoo.com. If you own example.com then you must have to enter firstname.lastname@example.org. Within 2-3 minutes you will get a verification mail to your inbox just click on that and update your Google+ account’s contribution section.
Bullets 2: If you don’t have any custom website or custom email address then don’t worry. Google has another way to make you a verified author.
