I just read the hub on how to link google+ to my hubpages profile, but under my profile, links, I only have facebook and pinterest. Am I looking in the right place? In the hub, did Simone mean to edit my google+ profile or my hubpages profile? Either way I cant find a page where I can add my google+ url (drivin me crazy hahaha), any help appreciated
What you need to do is simply post a link on your profile page to your Google+ page. So when someone clicks your Google+ link they end up on your profile there. Then on Google+ you need to do the same, post your HP profile link. You can view my profile to see how I have links on my page. You will see I have my Google+ link there.
I assume this is for Google authorship? That is why I did the cross-linking. Makes you look better in search results for sure.
This is where i started: https://plus.google.com/authorship and as you follow the instruction there, they will explain what I have to you.
Aha! Thanks Dale. Now I understand. (That was driving me crazy)
I see that you have now verified your Google Authorship
I checked it using the Rich Snippets Tool. I just noticed that the image you are using in your Google Plus is not a picture of yours. Based on the guidelines I have read, before your photo appears in the SERP, it must be a clear picture of you.
AHHH, so that's why the pic doesn't show up, I thought it was because of the "by name" vs my google+ name.Hmm, Much to think about thanks for the tip

I am working on one of my new websites - and I want to link back to my hubs here. How many times is this OK to do on a website page before it is overkill?

Okay, this is why I dreaded the coming changeover -- Google authorship was working just fine under the old format, but the new profile page won't recognize my Google profile URL because I have an old Google member...

"Paranoia" must think some of you, and honestly, I used to think the same. I didn't even believe that this was possible, even though Google mentioned that they have ways to detect link spamming. But the...
