Wow.. My Pic In Google Search Beside My Posts - How Is It ?


I am so excited to see my pic in google search beside my posts.

Since I am not a tech guy, I have been taken 2 days to get my pic in google search beside my blog posts.

After little research online, finally I can able to see my face on google search. I just want to share the same to my blog readers.

Please note that I am explaining from blogger point of you, since I am using blogger service.

Steps to follow to get your pic on google search beside your blog posts

  1. Update google plus profile settings
  2. Update About me page in your blog
  3. Update the blog html

1. Update google plus profile settings

* Open your google plus page

* Click profile icon from the left side bar


* Click Edit Profile


* Click your profile pic to change your profile pic (if are ok with present pic please ignore this step)

* Select a photo from your computer


* Click Set as profile photo


* Click Contributor to update your blog name


* Add custom link

* Give label as your blog name and enter your blog url in the specified boxes


* Save


* Click Done editing beside your profile name

2. Update About me page in your blog

* Go to your blogger blog

* Click Pages (to add / update about me page)



* Add new page, if you don't have about me page earlier.


* If your blog has already about me page click edit.


* Write some thing about you (by giving your name)

* Now go to HTML mode, and replace your name with the below code

<a href="G+ URL" rel="author">YOUR NAME</a>

* Replace "G+ URL" with your google plus url and replace YOUR NAME with your name


* Click Update

3. Update the blog html

* Click template from the left side bar


* Click Edit HTML


* Click Proceed


* Add the below code just below the <head> eliment

<link href='G+ URL' rel='author'/>

* Replace G+ URL with your google plus url


* Click Save Template


Once you are done with all the above steps, don't rush to see immediately in the google search. Because google takes minimum 24 hours to update your pic in the google search beside your posts. 

So, have a good sleep to see your pic next day.
