Adding Google Authorship to WordPress.com (with a little help from iftt.com)

UPDATE – SOMETHING HAS FALLEN OVER & THIS METHOD IS NOT WORKING, I WILL POST A SOLUTION SHORTLY

 

Currently there is no supported way to automate the addition of your Google Authorship to WordPress.com, so using iftt.com I found a hack to achieve this.

First you need to make sure you have added the website you are posting to to your contributors list in your Google + profile.

Then, you need to set up your ifft.com account and recipe making sure that you add the following code in the post decription box:

Connect with me on

<a href=”https://plus.google.com/106692973924660857810?rel=author“>+Enzo Vullo</a>

Making sure you replace my details (in blue) with yours. Don’t worry it is absolutely fine to add some html into the iftt.com box.

Here is an example of the finish result on my Enzography blog

Hope this helps
