Another option is by having an email address in the Contact Information section of your
Google+ profile from the domain you create content for.
If your content is in www.caseygollan.com.au/blog then you should have a verified email in your
Google+ personal profile with the domain caseygollan.com.au. In the screenshot above you
need to click Verify - this will send a verification email to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the
email, a "Verify" button will be visible. All you need to do is click the "Verify" button in your email
to verify the email address in your Google+ profile. A check mark will appear beside your email
address once you've successfully verified your email address.
