Have you seen those cool little pictures in the comment boxes ...

They're called a Gravatar

A 5 minute job over at gravatar.com will have you set up for life... unless you'd like to change your picture frequently like I do.

Shoot on over to Gravatar after watching The quick 6 min video showing the whole signup and adding your picture process.

Hi Tony - thanks for this :)
One question.... when I changed my email address in my user account, does this mean that any WA emails will now go to the new address...? Because I don't want them to......

Hey Jyl,
YVW, an answer to your question, your user account on Gravatar won't affect where your email end up, it's just for matching the images to the email addresses.

If you change your email address in your user account linked to your wordpress website, the emails would go to that new email address, which is what you may be wanting to avoid.

If you use gmail you can easily enough forward whatever emails you want to a gmail account of your choice.

You know where you changed your email address in Wordpress on the video from @mission0ps to @wealthyaffiliatefriend..... I changed mine there from one that I receive WA updates to, to the email address used for making comments. Does this make sense...?

Yes makes complete sense :o)

Any updates from wordpress or that blog install IE comment notifications etc will go to the email address that's listed under "General settings" in the WP backend.

The email address you use for commenting can be anything you want...

I tell you what leave a comment on mission0ps.com and I'll trace the email address for ya, and you can see if my replies go to teh right place!
Does that make sense?

It does :)

But your link is coming up as Error 500.... I see that you've posted a comment on one of my reviews - thank you :) - so I've replied to that. I have noticed that my email notifications are doubling up into both accounts... I'll keep an eye on that and see if anything needs changed. :)

Hi Tony, thank you. I just used this to update my "new user" in WP, also me. My "new user" is linked to my website email address. Should all posts by me that I made as the "new user" now show in google searches with my photo on them?

Hiya Annie, nah I'm afraid not it just works for comms on your blog and every other blog you make contact with. For your picture to show in google search you need to link your google plus profile id to your blog.. it's a lot easier than it sounds.

I achieve the same result just because I use Yoast as my WP SEO plugin ..

Yes I've linked my website to google, but I don't hink my photo is showing yet. It was when I set it up as a siterubix website but not as a dot come website. It's the same photo you see here, so it's good quality. Maybe it just takes a while to go through. Is Yoast better than All in One? It's just that as I'm pretty new to this, I tend to go with what is suggested to be used. Thanks Tony

Hi again Annie, well if you have it all set as it was on siterubix it's probably just a while propagating ( I love that word)

As for Yoast - well I'd say stick with AIO until you need something different ;)

Awesome video Tony, you did create it! Adding a gravatar is a great idea and will add the personalized touch within your comment trails around the net and on your own blog. A great idea.

I am likely going to incorporate this video in the bootcamp! Nicely done. ;)
