    Hi guys,

    I have Google Authorship showing in serps on one of my sites. Ive tried putting it on a 2nd but its not showing up yet.

    Im just wondering what the best "universal" way to feature the "about author" and profile pic is? Currently my site showing authorship has my g+ profile pic in serps and a different image (using gravatar) at the bottom of posts.

    Is there a way to show / take information from G+ to put at the end of posts?

    Or is there some plugin, or method that is considered the "best" way to display this?

    Thanks

    If it's a CMS or something like Wordpress then adding it to the URL types that are relevant is good. Editing the Page or Post in Wordpress to add your Author details. so that every URL has it on it automatically as you create it.

    Yes, in any of your articles, you can establish a direct link to your authorship by linking to your Google Plus profile with the rel=?author? parameter. This is the way you can implement it:


    1. In your article, add a byline that says By Your Name.
    2. Then create a text link for ?Your Name? and link it to your Google Plus profile. And make sure that you include rel=author in that link.

    Also, if your second site is Wordpress-based, you can quickly establish your authorship by using the <link> tag in your meta header of every page. You can either install http://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-seo/ and add your profile page URL under Users > Your Profile Google+.


    NB! And finally, once you?ve done the above, you need to edit the Contributor To section of your Google + profile. Just click http://plus.google.com/me/about/edit/coand it will automatically pop up the edit page where you can add the website you are a contributor for.
