Here's a cool little trick for the awesome members of Adwork Media. This is the result. I used Blogger but I think the star thing might work on normal websites too. Use this tool to see how your site looks like in Google search: http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets (if your blog is new, you might have to wait for a few minutes before its shows up correctly).

Star rating tutorial

You can edit the parts of the code that I colored. The number five in the end indicates the amount of stars shown in Google search. This is the easy part.
<div class="hreview"> <span class="item"> <span class="fn">Name of the item you want to rate</span><br/> </span> Last Reviewed by <span class="reviewer">Reviewer's Name</span>on <span class="dtreviewed">June 06 2013<span title="2013-10-06" class="value-title"></span><br/> </span> Rating: <span class="rating">5</span></div>

Picture tutorial

I'm not gonna lie. I'm not sure which parts of this code are necessary. I'll provide the code that worked for me. You can probably delete a line or two.
<a href="https://plus.google.com/u/0/PROFILE_ID?rel=author" rel="author">Firstname Lastname</a>
<a href="https://plus.google.com/PROFILE_ID?rel=author" rel="author">Firstname Lastname</a>
youremail@gmail.com (must match the one in G+)

By Firstname Lastname (must match the ones in Google+)

<a href="https://plus.google.com/PROFILE_ID" rel="publisher">Find us on Google+</a>


Things to do.

1. You must verify your email in G+

2. https://plus.google.com/authorship signup with the same email used in your blogspot.
3. You must add your blog to G+'s "Contribute to" page. Can be found by logging in to G+ --> Profile --> About --> Scroll down and you should see something like this. http://gyazo.com/f6896746d11f370fe0536ee50942f3e1 Yeah, I was desperate and added it a few times.

If you have trouble with this, just go to google.com and search.

Thanks for this contribution. You can do this with Google webmaster tools as well. There is also a preview option, how your site will look like on google. For wp I would always recommend the "yoast wpseo plugin" it has this feature inlcuded(with preview), too.

Thanks for the replies. I have always used Yoast but never knew about this option. Apparently it's on by default.
