Google+ Announces Embedded Posts And Author Attribution
Google+ has announced a couple of new features this week: embedded posts and author attribution. Embedded posts allows bloggers and publishers to embed public Google+ posts on other websites. The new author attribution feature streamlines the process of connecting your content on websites like WordPress.com to your Google+ profile.
People that want to embed a Google+ post can click on the “Embed post” tab from the drop-down menu in a post’s upper-righthand corner.
The code for the embed post can be copied and it will include text and photos. The Google+ embedded post will have the same standard +1 button for readers to interact with.
Google also announced that they are integrating the Google+ Sign-In with Google’s Authorship program. This means that if you sign in to WordPress.com with Google, the articles you publish will now be associated with your Google+ profile automatically.
Your Google+ information will be surfaced when it becomes most relevant. For example, you may see your name, picture, and link to your Google+ profile when your content appears in Search, News, and Google products.
