How to Set WordPress authoring Google+
 Not always the best option is to install your own WordPress, in fact there are times when neither interested or just can not or do not want. What always interested, and increasingly is configure your authoring publications with Google+ , Google's social network.


If you have a WordPress installed on your server is easy to add the Google Plus authoring but how do on WordPress.com if you can not install plugins or insert code into the issues?.

Well, tranqui, which is actually very simple steps and inches ...


So ... what is the "Blame Google+" on WordPress.com? ...

The basic thing you have to understand the process of recognition of authorship of Google+, or Google Plus, as you prefer to call it, consists of two main steps:


  • Link from your Google+ profile page author to your WordPress
  • Linking from your WordPress site to your user page Google+

So let's do this ...

... 1. Link from your Google+ profile page author to your WordPress ...


This part does not require even a WordPress installed on your server, to modify or add any code. Simply identify your author page in WordPress where you publish content .

If you have WordPress hosted on your server you can add a link to your author page , but on WordPress.com, how you can not touch code, or looking for a theme that already has this utility or else, to ensure you can use the widget Authors.

To do this go to "Appearance -> Widgets" and add the widget called " Authors "

 What show the widget in the sidebar of your theme, with gravatar if you have:

 Clicking on your name will take you to your author page, if it has the theme:


There are issues that have no copyright page, which would complicate things, if it did change - for example - the WordPress default theme (Twenty Twelve) and see. In any case it is really important that you copy the URL of your author page which looks like this:

http://MIWEB.wordpress.com/author/NOMBREUSUARIO/

Already have it?, Then let's Google+ ...

Go to your user page Google+, the type https://plus.google.com/108662063941519990591 and click on the blue button called " Edit Profile "next to your name.

Edit Profile
 Scroll down the page until a block called " Contributes "and click on any part of it to trigger the issue. Then click on the link labeled " Add custom link "and enter the name you want and, importantly, paste your URL in the signature WordPress.com site you copied earlier.

 Save and have already completed the most tedious and long, now we have it easier.

... 2. WordPress links from your site to your user page Google+

We return to our site on WordPress.com and spent again in the section "Appearance -> Widgets" , this time we add a text widget, that great friend who served for almost everything.
WordPress links from your site to your user page Google+
 Put the name you want, the important thing is to create a link to your Google+ profile , you would like this:


< a href = "https://plus.google.com/108662063941519990591/about?rel=author" > + Muhammad Asif </ a >
I should not need to repeat it but boy, that never hurts, remember to change the numbering of the example that is in my profile, and the name (of course) for yours.

Very importantly, the name must be exactly the one you have in Google Plus with the "+" in front and stuck to it, come on, you follow the example.

The widget, and the site will show the link, which will link to your Google+ profile, which is what Google needs after all. What makes the magic is also the first step, is the reference to ? rel = author , how can imagine.

Save the changes to the text widget and you have closed the circle asking Google for authorship . Now you just have to wait a little, because sometimes take to generate a thumbnail, and check on the web for checking the " rich snippets "of Google if all went well.

Oh, and in case I forgot to say, this is an essential for positioning on Google these days.

Have you found it difficult?
