SD Google Authorship - plugin for Joomla

SD-GoogleAuthorship-LogoFinally there is an easy way how to implement Google Authorship in Joomla sites. I created plugin SD Google Authorship, for easy use and quick setup on Joomla site. Its simply working for multiple authors as well.

Plugin is compatible with Joomla 1.5, Joomla 2.5 and Joomla 3.x.
Since plugin version 3.2 it's properly supports K2 extension



There are only few steps you have need do to get authorship marking for Goole ready on your Joomla site.

  1. Download SD Google Authorship plugin and install it
  2. Allow "System - SD Google Authorship" plugin in Joomla Plug-in management
  3. Create contact for each author and associate it with user and set Website URL as your Google Plus profile




In case you are setuping authorship on different domain, than is your email domain, you should take a look into your G+ profile and verify your page.  https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/1408986?expand=option2, see Option 2

Thats all. If you want be sure, that all is working properly, get some URL with article and put it to Google rich snippet testing tool.

If you like this extension, you can send me some donation as thanks for my work.

Please don't forget rate this plugin on JED http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/news-display/content-infos/authors/23742


Choose amount for donation: EUR

Because of EU MOSS VAT Changes, you shall use this plugin free for commercial purposes as well. Unfortunatelly because of this I will not create any future versions and support in comments will be very limited.

Version updates

Version 3.4:
- removed form from administration to pay for commercial use, it's free for now.

Version 3.3:
- Fixed notice message
- Save and Close buttons working now from plugin management details

Version 3.2:
- supports K2 extension

Jean-François GOUDE: I am not sure why you point as a problem. rel author is not showing in HTML code for some pages? Or Google not shows image in results?

Second reason is because Google decide to drop author photos in search results. More info you can find here: searchengineland.com/google-plays-authorship-search-results-dropping-profile-image-google-circle-count-195163

Hi Stanislav,

thank you for offering such a simple and sleek solution for Google Authorship!

I did everything as described.. Unfortunately the plugin inserts the needed link-tag multiple times..

here ist the code:

Is there a solution to get only one link-tag?

And is my link implemented the right way?

thank you in advance!

best regards from germany!

Hi, problem with multiple times tag is with K2 + k2 modules (latests etc.). It was in my ToDo to fix it, but after Google anouncement, that Authorship is not support any longer I don't think any development make sense here.

There seems to be an isseu with theplugin and J3.4. It does not show up in plugins and your payments box hijacks the plugins management feature - I am sure its not but its acting like ransom ware.

Stanislav hi... How to get my authorship link on the frontpage? For the search results, that's about the most important part to have it ... any suggestion is highly appreciated!

HI Garry as I wrote before in this comment thread, google authorship cannot work on homepage because of principe authorship. Homepage is not article from one author. Its mix of information from website. Joomla is not assigning 1 author to homepage. Only way I can imagine is setup some specific article as homepage, but then homepage will looks as open article which is not what you want to do I guess.
