The author page should be linked from the Blog Post page via the below code:

<a href="[profile_url]? rel="me">Google+</a>
When you are done with it, make sure you have checked it against Google Rich Snippet Testing tool.

To make your Google Plus presence prominent, you need to place a small piece of code in the source code of your website that will form a cool Google + badge for your website.
This will make it easier for followers to follow your website in Google + and the more the number of followers, the greater the chances of securing top ranking in Search Plus Your World. Moreover, having a prominent position in Google + will certainly have positive impacts on your brand’s social presence.
More Plus +:
Since Google is gathering information from Google + to have an insight into users’ behavior and to get an idea whether a website is good enough for a user or not, you need to take extra care. Try to get as many Google + from different people without doing anything sneaky and you will have a better world to live.
