Author information in Google search results

"If you want your authorship information to appear in search results for the content you create, you'll need a Google Profile with your profile photo. Then, verify authorship of your content by associating it with your profile using either of the methods below.

  1. Add your name and email to your content (recommended for sites with content by multiple authors)
  2. Link your content to your Google Profile, and vice versa," explains Google.

Once you're done, please complete this form, google will inform you of any implementation issues.
