How to Get Your Avatar to Show Up Everywhere

gravatar

Have you ever noticed how some people’s photos appear next to their comments and others do not?

In this post you will learn how to get your avatar to show up automatically when you leave a blog comment or forum post.

What is an Avatar?

Avatars are the small photos that represent you online. Most authors use their author photo as their avatar.

Why Bother?

Having an avatar next to your name helps you look more professional and can boost traffic to your website.

How to Setup Your Universal Avatar

These steps take about 5 minutes and will save you tons of time in the long tun.

  • Step #1 Go to Gravitar.com
  • Step #2 Click sign up now!
  • Step #3 Type in your email address and click sign up. Gravatar uses your email address to link your avatar with your comment.
  • Step #4 Check your email and click the activation link.
  • Step #5 Pick a nickname and password. Only lowercase letters and numbers allowed for the username.
  • Step #6 Add an image by clicking “Add one by clicking here.” Gravitar can grab images from your computer, your webcam, and the internet.
  • Step #7 Click “My Computer’s hard drive” to select a photo from your computer.
  • Step #8 Choose file and find the photo you want to use on your computer.
  • Step #9 Crop the photo. This is fun and fairly self explanatory. Then click “G” for your rating.
  • You’re done! Now  your comments on blogs and forums around the world will have your avatar.

Did it work?

    Wow!

  40. Shane January 14, 2012 at 3:20 am #

    Thanks – i’m seeing it won’t work on other’s blogs – when i look at my gravitar account i see i’ve rated it G
    but, when i go to the gravitar page where it shows how your image looks on variously rated pages including R and X – “see how your avatar looks on variously rated pages’ it shows my actual avatar (face) as the same on all of them. I don’t go on R or X rated sites nor leave comments on them but since I rated it as G why is it showing at all on any of the examples other than G. Hope that makes sense!
    eg it’s not showing up on another photographers blog where i made a comment (think it’s the first time i’ve made a comment on someone’s blog – no actually i did make one other through my Google+ account and it did show up when I commented on another G+).
    Shane

    • Thomas Umstattd January 16, 2012 at 9:22 pm #

      Shane,

      I think the issue is whether that blog has Gravitar enabled. Most WordPress blogs have gravatar but not all other blog platforms fully support the service. The best way to test it is to go to WordPress.com and leave some comments and see if you can see your photo.

    Thanks for the article – very useful! I guess Gravatar does not link to Gmail addresses?

      Hi Cofa, I use a gmail address with my Gravatar and it works for me.

      • Cofa Tsui December 24, 2013 at 12:43 pm #

        Thanks Rosemary for your reply. I submitted my favicon separately within the Gmail “settings” area – so I have my favicon stored with my Gmail addresses. I used to have some other email addresses (i.e., cofatsui@not-gmail.com) forwarded to my Gmail accounts. When viewing messages initiated from those not-gmail addresses, my favicon stored at Gmail will not show. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone! (131224)

    I had my gravatar set up for previous sites. But when I just launched my new website http://changegrowachieve.com and used my new email address, I couldn’t figure out how to get my Gravatar to show up with the new email address. I was looking in the wrong place. All you have to do is add any email address you use to make comments with to the actual gravatar account. Phew! Now you can see my smiling face! – Joe
