My picture in Google Search Results

You know that when you search Google some of the results have a picture next to them. I tend to click those more for some reason. (I'm guessing some psychology thing)

2 Steps

1. You need to add a link to your Google+ Profile on your blog. I put mine in the footer.
To get your Google+ Profile Url go to https://plus.google.com/me and Url in the address bar is your Url.

2. Go to your Google+ Profile and edit the Links section and add you blog/site to the Contributor To.
You can also just use this link. Contributor To section.

Link ex.

<a href='http://plus.google.com/xxxxxxx' rel='author' target='_blank'>Your name</a>

There are actually two ways you can get your picture added, but the one above I think is the easiest.
