How to Show Author Info in Search Results


The Google search engine values quality content. As such, it shows only in its top search results great content from trusted authors whether they’re sharing it on a website, blog or article directories. This is known as the author markup feature.

The good news today for authors who are passionate about sharing original and quality information is that their name can now be displayed in Google’s search results. This helps internet users easily find useful and valuable information that they need from specific writers. So for example, when a person now searches for a particular topic which you’ve written about, your name will show in the results.

The trick to doing this is to link your content with your Google+ profile. Make sure you create a profile in Google’s social media platform first and include a clear and good headshot photo.
