Inside Search


In the few months since we launched authorship in search, hundreds of authors have linked their content to their Google profile. Want to appear like them in search? Get started.

Get started.

Two simple steps:

  1. Create a Google+ Profile
    • Remember to upload a high quality headshot and fill out some profile information such as hometown, etc.
  2. Go to, sign up with your email and click on the verification link we send you.

If you don’t want to verify your email address, you can also link your content to your Google profile.
