Now there are various way to get this done for yourself but in this post we are going to talk about a simple way to do this, which would require no programming knowledge at all.

This is because Google have launched 'Search Plus Your World' which does one thing that no blog or website owner can ignore. It displays results from people who are recognized as Authors on Google+.
