How to Authorize Your SlideShare Profile with Google+, Improve CTR

We explained in a previous post how to add your profile picture to Google search results, but now you have an option to take your SlideShare account to the next level. You can authorize your SlideShare profile with G+ so that Google will recognize you as the author of the decks you upload. By doing this, whenever your SlideShares surface in Google search results, your profile picture will be added to them.

Besides establishing credibility and legitimacy to your content, authorship can improve click-through rates on your content.

Check out the deck below for a step-by-step walkthrough of this process:

    Hi, this sounds great, but I can only see LinkedIn and Facebook on my Sharing tab. How do I get Google+ there?

  • http://profiles.google.com/trappermark Mark Traphagen

    It is very important that people know that just setting up authorship successfully for any site does NOT guarantee that an author photo will show in search. Google decides algorithmically when it is best to show such results for a particular searcher for a particular query. You should not lead people to believe that it is automatic simply by following all the right steps.

    Priya, it used to be that you had to have a certain number of followers on Slideshare (I believe 5) before they would enable Google+ verification. Don’t know why they didn’t mention that here.
