MANILA, Philippines – Google is pushing to make the Google+ a more ubiquitous part of computing life, expanding author attribution on Google searches and introducing post embedding for Google+ posts.

In an announcement post, Google said it was integrating Google+ sign-in features with Google’s authorship program, beginning with integration on WordPress.com and Typepad posts.

If a user signs into those services with his Google account, posts made from that sign in will be associated with that Google+ profile.

Google is also rolling out its own embed code on Google+ posts, allowing users to place public Google+ posts on their sites.
