  • Start typing in About Me section. Write about yourself and add external links. But be careful not to use double quotes (“…”) inside anchor <a> ..</a>) tag. Use single quotes as Gravatar removes everything inside double-quotes. Be specific and add rel=’author’ or any other. Never add rel=’follow’ or rel=’dofollow’ because these tags are incorrect.
  • You can add as many as possible external links using the same way.
  • Save profile.
