    Hey guys,

    Can anyone tell me how she was able to do this? Her G+ profile shows on Google result. I think there was a post here in BHW that explains how to do this, I just couldn't find it.

    Berap,

    You can also just sign up for Google Authorship, link your plus profile to your website and the image will start appearing in search results. More info on how to set everything up here,

    Best,

    Shawn

    Good insight. Just installed the plugin on my site, the google-plus-authorship had a snag, or at least I did and I couldn't get it to work. I install another one insteadGoogle Author Link

    I've known about this for a long time. Is there any SEO advantage? I know from the cast studies I've looked at that more people are likely to click on the site.
