Google Authorship and You

08/05/2015 Update: Google has retired the authorship feature. See the latest news here.

Today we are excited to announce our latest partnership: Google!  Wondering what this means for you?  Let us tell you!

Previously, while it was relatively easy to claim the content you author on Google, we've made this process even easier by integrating Google+ Sign-In with Google’s Authorship program.

Starting today, if you connect to Typepad with Google, the articles you publish will now be associated with your Google+ profile automatically. All you need to do is go to Account > Google Settings and connect your profile by clicking the shiny new red Google ‘Sign-In’ button:


Don't already have a Google+ profile?  Sign up here. Once you've established a connection to your Google+ profile, you may see your name, picture and/or a link to your Google+ profile when your content appears in Search, News and other Google products. This will make your blog stand out, letting your readers easily notice when content is authored by you when they perform related searches:

You can read more about claiming your content in our Knowledge Base.  And, as always, if you have any questions, we're here for you!

Thank you! I'll try that.

Thank you for this!

Thank you, a great help. Does this affect old posts too or just forthcoming posts? How about photogalleries and other single pages?

Is there any way to automatically share new articles to my circles on Google+ ?


This is something we're looking into doing in the future, but right now, there's not a way to automatically share posts. Thanks for letting us know you'd find that useful, though!


This will affect older posts and Pages as well as new ones. As long as your Photo Albums are public, they should also be affected.
