I’m impatient to get that all important Google Author Rank and have been twitching at the time it’s taking to seed through.
My fabulous colleague Claire Dunford, who writes the Raw Discourse blog, sent me a very useful link to something called the ‘Google Structured Data Testing tool’: http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets
You simply Input a link to one of your posts and it will spill out a preview – if your pic shows against the preview, you’ve set up your Google+/blog connection successfully.
Good to know I’m doing something right!
