Aside from having it linked back to your page and the search engines trusting your page, “real” people would also feel your “authority” being present and visible.

If you work with a style framework or would like to put this in a function, you’ll be able to add this by connecting into wordpress_mind(). Paste the next code inside your theme’s functions.php file.

The next thing you must do is to see your Google plus profile. After which, add backlink to your website underneath the contributing factors section.

Lastly, make certain that the 1’s are public in your Google profile. See to it that it is shown there. Otherwise, the process will not work and you will need to go back and restart the process. See what is lacking.

Considering how simple this is to configure, there is no excuse not to set it up.
