How to check Google Authorship Analytics in Google+

Previously available in Google Webmaster tools, Author Stats is being tested within Google+. This is how Google Authorship works - when you do a search in Google, you see some results with a photo attached along with the name of the Author. This is called Google Authorship and a few lines of code can get this done for you. Especially if you have a site or blog online and want to add your name and photo to each result that shows up on Google - this is something you need to get done. So once you have added Google Authorship to your posts, you can check out detailed analytics by using Google's webmaster tools. Google however have announced that they have begun testing Author stats and analytics in Google+. So if you are a verified author of a blog or website, you can soon check how many people clicked on your article and reached your page right from within Google+.
