Content authorship with google + for profile images in search engines

Rich snippets are getting more important to google in the last month. You can see more and more searchresults with profile images and a link to the google+ page of the author next to them.

Of course a search result with an image is more likely to get clicks than normal results.

how can we do that?

First you need a google+ profile.

Then you have to add your page to the sites you are contributing to. You can do that in the links settings of your google+ account.

The third step is to link from your content to your google+ page and to add the rel=author attribute to this link.
