Hi! My name is Nataniell and this
is onemorecupof'coffee where we talk about online business, making money on the
internet and financial independence.
Today, is day 14 of the series where we are creating a profitable website on the
internet for free and we are going to be playing with some Google services today.
We are going to set up a Gmail account.
We are going to set up our Google plus profile and we are also going to look at
how to get our Google image in Google results. So, the profile image that you have on Google plus
profile will be able to show up in the results of Google and that's going to help
you get more clicks on your website. So, I'm gonna go ahead and create a fresh
Okay, so now that we have a Gmail account, we're going to add a profile photo.
You're gonna need a profile photo. Don't use any kind of logo or any kind of
funky set that is not actually your face because otherwise it just won't work.
I know for a lot of people when you first start in social medial, it's kinda weird
putting your picture up on the internet but it's just one of those things.
You're gonna have to get some kind of picture. If you're really embarrassed about having
your picture up, you can get a cartoonized picture of your face or you can get some
kind of artistic representation of your face but there needs to be a face.
Otherwise, Google will detect that there's no face and they won't put your
picture in the search engine results.
So, even if you don't have a picture, you should be able to take a picture with your webcam.
Most computers nowadays come with a webcam.
Now, you may actually have a Gmail account already in which case if you
haven't set up your Google plus profile, you need to set that up.
If you don't have a profile, yet it will say plus you over here.
I'm gonna click over to my Google plus profile. We are going to set up.
We're going to skip all this junk coz we don't wanna follow people that we don't
know and you can fill in this information as you want.
You don't have to be completely honest and later on you can turn these things off.
Okay, we are go over to profile about.
Okay, and to edit any of the stuff,
you can see this edit buttons here and we customize it according to what you want to
show other people about yourself. You're not required to show anything if
you don't. All you have to do is turn this off.
Only you or only to your circles or however you wanna do it.
And then if you wanna see what other people see, you can also change this view
profile as public and that will change how you can this.
So, you can preview what other people will see.
The thing that you will have to do that's kind of a pain is you have to get a huge
photo here. Now, you can get the regular stuff from
the default Google images or you can upload your own photos.
If you upload your own photos, it's gonna have to be really really big and it's not
This one is about 800 pixels and that can be just something fun coz you can play
with that. So, now that you have your Google profile
set up what we're going to do is we're going to get your image set up in Google results.
Now, let me go to Google. Okay, we type in.
You can see that my image is here and you can see when I search for this term,
these are the people have images and the results. Well, that's gonna do.
That's gonna add trust with the people who potentially click on your website.
You know, when they look through all these results and there is nothing,
nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing and then suddenly someone's face pops up.
They're like oh, well here's a guy who is honest about what he is doing.
He does not try to hide behind the internets and maybe the thought does not
exactly go through someone's head but it's been proven that having your picture along
side with your content in the internet is going to increase the number of people
that click on your website and it's also going to allow you to connect
with your visitors more when they see that you're a real person, you're a real author.
You're not just some internet robot. You're not just some marketer.
You're a person that really cares about what they're writing about.
It really is going to influence how many people click on your site?
How many people make comments and how many people come back?
How, that's the whole process and actually they're tons of tutorials on
wealthy affiliate on how to do that. So, all I'm gonna do is I'm gonna put
a link in the You Tube description.
You can watch these tutorials for free.
So, there's a couple of different ways to do this.
One, you can do it manually. One, you can do it through a plug in.
I'm gonna put links to both in the description box and then you can do that.
Actually, I'm thinking it's pretty easy now.
So, I'm just gonna show you how to do it and then you can also check out those
other resources as well in case you get lost along the way or for some reason it
doesn't work out for you. There's actually a couple of different
ways to set it up.
So first, we're gonna go to our website. We're gonna grab our URL then we're gonna
go to our Google plus profiles, scroll down, find links, click edit.
Go to contributor to add custom link, paste the URL in there, name our website,
save it and then we are going to grab our Google plus URL.
We are going to go to our website.
Go to menus. We're gonna add the menu.
It doesn't matter what you call it. No one can see this.
I called it Google plus. We're gonna go to custom links, paste in
your Google plus URL and call it what you want, I'm gonna call it Google plus profile.
I'm going to add that.
Open that up. Okay, actually we forgot to add something.
We're gonna type a question mark URL equals author, save that.
Go to widgets, custom menu, give it a name and select our Google plus menu from
here, save it.
Open this up, check to make sure the link works, then we are going to look for
something called the rich snippets tool.
We're going to click on that.
Copy our website, paste it in there. Do a preview and then when you refresh it you'll
see your image here appear and that means although when you type your website into
search right now, there's no image. That's okay.
It takes Google a while to catch up with the changes that you've made.
So, if you see your image here, that's' fine.
Everything is working. You got nothing to worry about.
So, today, we set up our Gmail account.
We set up our Google plus profile.
We got our image to appear in the search engine results and we're done.
Again, I'm gonna link to this two other trainings on how to set up your Google
plus image in the search engine results
because typically a lot of people kinda get lost in this so the more training, the better.
You should be able to do it that way that I have done but if not you can always go
back to these trainings in the You Tube description or you can ask me a question
either on wealthy affiliate or on my
website or via my social media links which are located in the You Tube description as well.
