Though i wont say that after completing the below steps, Google would right away show your profile picture beside your blog link. As i completed these steps 2-3 months ago and Google was too lazy to show up the picture until now. So yeah! Hope for the best.

THOUGH below are the vital steps that are 'nessasary' to show up your picture. As these steps inter-connects your blog with your Google+ profile and proofs Google that the blog is solely your, or you are the owner of it.

So lets start with the simple steps.

Step #1 Add the following Meta Tag to your blog's HTML

Go to Design >> Edit HTML and add the following code just below <head> tag.

<meta content='YOUR NAME' name='Author'/>

Step #2 Add The Following Code To Your Blog (Anywhere e.g Footer)

<a href=" GOOGLE+ ID"
  rel="author" target="_blank"> Add Me To Your Google+ Circles</a>

How To Find Google+ ID?

1- Go to your Google+ profile as shown in the picture below.

Once you're on your Google+ profile page, note down the ID as in the address bar as highlighted in the picture snippet below.

For example in my case, the Google+ ID is : 107489234195718225165

Step #3 Now Add The Following Code To Your 'About' Page

<a href=" ID"
  rel="me" target="_blank"> Visit My Google Profile</a>

Step #4 Now Add Your Blog To Your Google+ Profile

Go to your Google+ profile >> About section >> Click Edit Profile.

And then add your blog link as shown in the picture below.

Step #5 Make Sure Your Picture Is In 'Square Dimensions'! 

Once you're done with the above steps, simply make sure that the profile picture that you are using on your Google+ profile is in 'Square Dimensions' i.e the width and height pixels must be equal. This helps Google in modifying the image accordingly to display in the search results.

If you would fail to do so, the process wont be successful and you might never get to see your profile picture in search results ever! So its important.

Now save settings and your DONE!


After doing all these steps, its not necessary that your picture would show up instantly. Google takes time to show up authors picture in search results. But these are the steps that are pending upon your part. Then leave rest to Google.

Hopefully with in a month or so, you may get to see your profile picture in search results.
