Set Up a Google Profile, Connect to Your Blog (Rel=“Me”)

 you’ll want to connect your site to your Google profile with the following process:
  1. Create a Google+ profile at (if you haven’t already). Be sure to upload a clear, distinguishable photo, and fill out the “About” tab with relevant professional and personal information.
  2. Add a Rel=”Me” tag to your author page that links to your Google profile, using the following snippet: <a class=“url fn author” rel=“me” href=>.
  3. Navigate to the “About” tab on your Google profile and click “edit profile” in the upper right-hand corner of your screen.
  4. In the right-hand column click on “contributor to” and add a custom link to your author page on your blog. To do this, type your “Blog Name” in the first line, and then add your author page URL in the second.
  5. Be sure that “anyone on the web” is selected in the “who can see this?” box, and click save.
  6. Double-check that the process worked. Make sure you’ve set up your three links correctly by running a sample through Google's rich snippet testing tool.
