Hi, I have created a google + account and linked it with my website and it is now detected on the Rich Snippets testing tool properly. My Profile pic shows up under the tool on google search, but when I write a comments under my website blog it does not show my photo. Only my name is shown with no profile pic... How can I get my google + profile pic to show up on my website, post comments etc...?

Hi Abigail,

When it comes having your image on comments, it has nothing to do with Google+ or rich snippets.

You need to set up something called Gravatar.

Head over to Tony's tutorial on how to set this up.

Cheers!

Hi Jay, thank you. Yes.. I have now figured it out since posting this question. I have installed a plugin that has now allowed me to have a profile picture on the website. Thank you so much as this information as will help us all that are learning. Many blessings and wishing you lots of success. xoxox

You're welcome.

Just had a look at your meditation music website and it looks great. Awesome choice in colors and font.

My only suggestion would be to add a contact page at the end of your menu as it tends to look more authentic and transparent to have a way for people to contact you.

Cheers!
Jay

I've just installed the plug in mentioned and activated it. I have also done the same as you Abigail with the authorship of my website. How ever all the comments I have made to the comments on my website still don't show my pic. Any idea's why.

Have you changed your authorship from admin to your name that is linked to google +?

I also noticed when I tried to manually change my previous admin comments over to my name, they did stay as blank... however all of my NEW comments since the update are coming up with my name and profile pic now.

If you had previous comments under admin, they will likely stay blank, but the new comments will have the profile pic... hope this may help. xo
