How to Link your Blog to your Google+ Page

To help more people discover your blog and also expand your following on Google+, you will need to link your blog to your Google+ page. Linking your Google+ page and your blog/website is useful because tt helps you connect with your friends, fans, and customers. It also provides Google with information that they can use to help determine the relevancy of your blog to a user query on Google search engine.

By adding the short line of code to your blog/website, you can make your Google+ page eligible to show up on the right hand side of the Google search page for relevant queries and make your Google+ page more discoverable. If your website is already verified in Google Webmaster Tools, then the verified webmaster can approve a request to connect your website to your Google+ page. And before you can start to link your blog to your Google+ page, make sure you’re using Google+ as your page. You can then directly link your blog by inserting a small snippet of code on your blog. Follow the steps below:

1. Go to your Google+ page dashboard
You will see something that looks like what is in the image below

On your Google+ page’s dashboard, Click on “link your website”. You can see an example in the image above

2. Read the instruction and copy the necessary code

Copy the code you see and ask your site’s webmaster to add the line of code to your site’s homepage or you can do it yourself easily. The code contains your Google+ page URL and a rel tag that shows google bots that you are the publisher of the blog.

An example of the code is shown in the image below

After you do these, Google will check to make sure you’ve added the snippet to your website correctly.
Click Done when the check is complete. A checkmark will display next to your website on the ‘About’ tab of your page’s profile. It may take a few days for the checkmark to appear. After you’ve linked your Google+ page to your blog, make sure you also link your website to your page.

I did this for MMONigeria’s Google+ page and it was successful. After linking your blog to your Google+ page, you will see something that looks like what’s in the image below.
