How To Add Your WordPress Blog To Your Gravatar

How many times have you clicked on the Gravatar image of somebody who has left a comment on a blog post and not been able to find their blog details? Frustrating, isn’t it?

The image that appears next to a comment is known as a Gravatar. Here’s an example.

If I hover my mouse over Ritu’s image, the following happens.

If I wanted to find Ritu’s blog, I would need to click on the ‘View Complete Profile’ button.

When I do that, I’m taken to her Gravatar page.

Ritu’s websites, including her blog, are listed towards the bottom of the page. All I have to do is click on the ‘But I Smile Anyway‘ blog image (under ‘Websites’) and, hey presto, I’m taken straight to her blog.

But how do you add your WordPress blog to your Gravatar profile?

  • Using a search engine, search for Gravatar.
  • Sign into Gravatar by using your WordPress sign in details (top right of the page).

  1. This was really helpful! I actually had some of my profile already set up on Gravatar, but did not have my websites linked, so thank you for helping me figure that out! I also needed to update my profile since it was clearly an old one lol.

  2. Reblogged this on WordPress Guidelines and commented:
    Do you know that you can add your WordPress Blog name to your “Gravatar” which is what readers will see when they hover their mouse over your icon / gravatar when you Comment upon a post? Here is how it is done.

  3. I am definitely saving this for later. I keep seeing things about putting in a gravatar, but haven’t given much thought to it. How do I come up with a logo?

    1. A logo for your Gravatar? Just replace the current picture on your Gravatar with a logo. Under ‘My profile’ click on ‘Photo Gallery’ then on ‘add new image’ and add the new image of your logo from there.
