Google+ Pages

If you’ve created a Google+ page, we strongly recommend linking from that page to your website and vice versa. Linking your Google+ page and your site like this not only helps you build relationships with friends and followers, but also gives Google information we can use to determine the relevancy of your site to a user query in Google Web Search.

Based on Google’s documentation, the way to do this is adding link with rel=publisher attribute in the head element of yor page.

  • you have set up a Google Plus Profile
  • you have set up a Google Plus Page and set the “website” parameter to be the URL of your website

  • The verified webmaster can confirm the link in Webmaster Tools.

Once the link has been approved, you'll receive and email. You'll also see a checkmark next to your website on the 'About' tab of your page's profile.

Steps In Setting Up The Menu Rel=Publisher Link

  • Create a bidrectional link by placing the following code snippet in the <head> tag of the site’s HTML
