Display your Profile Picture in Google Search Results

Display your Profile Picture in Google Search Result

Step 1: Create an "About Me" page on your blog, if you haven't done that already, and link the about page to your Google Profile page.

This is important. While creating the hyperlink to your Google Profile page, do remember to add rel=”me” to the link as shown below (or see the source of my about).

<a href="" rel="me">My Profile</a>

Step 2: Next you need to ensure that all the blog stories that you have written include a link to your "About Me" page.  This hyperlink should have the rel=”author” attribute as shown below (or see my sidebar of this page for an example).

<a href="" rel="author">My short bio</a>

Step 3: This is the last step. Sign in to your Google Profiles account and under links, add a new custom link that points to your "About Me" page. Tick the option that says "This page is specifically about me" and save the changes.

That's it. Wait for Google to re-crawl your new content and then test your links. Open the rich snippets tool and copy-paste the URL of one of your recent stories in the preview box. If the results say verified author (see the next screenshot), you are all set.
