Google and its search service are going through changes all the time. With the rise of Google+, Google Search has become even more social. It is not crazy to assume that Author Rank will be a significant ranking factor in the future. As a webmaster, you simply can’t afford to ignore Google+. You should also take time to implement the Authorship markup for your site so your profile information shows up under your listings in the SERPs. These 5 Google+ Author plugins make it easy to get this done:
Google Author Link: manages your Google Authorship information. Works for single and multi-author websites.
GPAISR: replaces the author link with your Google+ profile link on your site. That way Google can have an easier time showing your profile in the SERPs.
AuthorSure: one of the best Google Authorship plugins we have tested. It helps you get your face to show up in Google’s search results. It uses rel=author, rel=me and rel=publisher to link your sites to your Google+ properties.
WP Social SEO Booster: a handy plugin that adds Facebook Open Graph, Twitter Card, and Google Rich Snippets to your site. It implements Authorship for your site as well.
Single Author G+ META: a simple plugin that adds the appropriate Author tags to the header of your site. You are still going to have to follow Google’s instructions to connect your site to your G+ profile.
