Google Authorship – Must have WordPress Plugin

I’ve tried a couple of the plugins out there which help you to get your picture next to your articles in Google Search results.

To be honest, they don’t really work – especially if you have multiple authors. So I kept hacking around – this plugin might be the right answer.

Google Authorship WordPress Plugin

A few weeks ago I asked the community if anyone knew a way to implement Google’s rel=author protocol for WordPress sites with multiple authors. So, each different author of the blog would get their own little picture in the search results.

Since there didn’t seem to be a plugin out there, we created one. This is really basic, but it does the trick. It works on single author blogs too, if you don’t feel like hacking your themes to make that work.

Every writer will need to add their Google+ profile to their WordPress user info, and then “claim” it here in Google+ profile as a “Contributor to”.
