I just got a note from Gil on my Rel=”author” Squidoo tutorial. (Thanks, Gil!)
The slots on our Squidoo Profile for “other profiles” (Facebook, Twitter, MySpace) are now labeled with rel=”me” automatically. So is the “My Blog” slot.
More importantly, Squidoo has now added a slot on our lensmaster profile for a link to “Google Plus” (which will work just fine for a regular Google profile account as well). This link is automatically marked with rel=”me” in the code.
Therefore, in order to connect your Squidoo lenses to your Google profile, the process is now:
- Create a Google Profile
- Edit your Google Profile, add a link to your Squidoo Lensmaster Page in the “Other Profiles” box
- View your Google profile and copy its URL
- On Squidoo, go to My Settings > Profile, scroll down, and paste your Google Profile URL into the “Google Plus” box
- Save, and you’re done!
P.S. Remember those slots in our Squidoo Profile that we haven’t been able to access since the Dashboard update? They’re editable again!
Great news and done! I found some links I wanted to change in my profile, and those would not “hold”, so sent in bug report. But love being able to add our google plus profiles to that list – and it did “hold” that info! Success! Thank you!
