Advanced Tips

For People

If you run a website with authored content, you can add markup that links your content to your Google+ profile. Learn more about adding authorship markup by visiting plus.google.com/authorship or by visiting our Help Center.

For Organizations

To improve the likelihood of your Google+ content appearing whenever it’s relevant, you should link your Google+ Page to your website by installing a small snippet of code. This code lets Google know that your website is associated with an official Google+ Page.
