Gravatar stands for Globally Recognized Avatar. It’s an image that follows you from website to website and appears beside your name when you comment or post on blogs and websites. It helps identify you on the web and helps build your brand.
The nice thing about using a Gravatar is you do not have to upload an image to every site you comment or post on. You simply set it up once and Gravatar associates your email address with the image you selected. If the site you are commenting or guest posting on supports Gravatars, your images will automatically show next to your name. It’s a widely used feature on many websites, blogs and communities.
Simply sign up for a free Gravatar account, upload an image and assign it to your email address. You can also set up additional email accounts and assign different images to those addresses.
It’s not only a time saving feature, it’s an important feature for building your brand and credibility online.
