Hi glynis.sherwood

If you would like to link Google+ authorship for your Yola site, please follow these steps:


  1. Open your site in the Yola Sitebuilder.

  2. Drag and drop a HTML Widget onto your home page. See this link for help : Adding HTML.

  3. Copy and paste this code into the HTML editor : <a href="[profile_url]?rel=author">Google</a>. Replace [profile_url] with your Google+ profile's URL.

  4. Then add a reciprocal link back to your Google+ profile to your site:


  • Log into your Google+ account.

  • Go to the "Contributor To section".

  • Click on "Add custom link".

  • Enter your site's URL (web address) and label or description for your site.

  • Click "Save".




I hope that works for you!

When I paste in the HTML code in I can see the word "Google" (at the end of the code string) on the published page. Is this correct?

Hello glynis.sherwood

Yes, from what I can see in the code provided above, this is correct. You can change the word "Google" between the a tags by any other word or word group you like.

Please let me know if you have more questions.
