Authorship no longer showing on SERP R. Lynn Shell 1/14/13 9:24 AM
I've read the FAQs and searched the help center. 
My URL is: www.gryffynsaeyrieborzoi.com


I implemented Google authorship on my website, and it was showing fine in search engine results.

I did a search today, and it is no longer showing on the SERP.

What's up?

Hi R. Lynn Shell

I see two potential issues:

1. In the profile annotated as the author ( https://plus.google.com/u/0/111928490582871469703/about ) you specify you are a contributor to different URLs on gryffynsaeyrieborzoi.com but your website is www.gryffynsaeyrieborzoi.com. You should specify you are a contributor to the www variant.

2. We have guidelines for authorship images: you "need a Google+ Profile with a good, recognizable headshot as your profile photo". I currently see a non-human photo as your profile image on Google+ and you would need to change that to use Authorship. You can learn more at: 


Hope this helps,
Pierre

Good Point Pierrefar ... I see more and more businesses using a logo or a random image vs. a photo of the poster.

Doing a site:plus.google.com/111928490582871469703 you can see that your image is not showing up so it is not a problem related to the contributor section.

Try reading this http://www.seomoz.org/blog/read-but-learn-by-doing-an-approach-to-the-analysis-of-seo-issues-between-authorship-google-plus-and-snippets

If it was a contributor section issue you should see the picture appear with the site command related to your profile.

This is the first step to identify the real issue.

This morning I changed the photo back to the one that was showing previously.

Hoping it will start to show up soon - as of now, it's not.

In my case, I inserted author's profile gogle and everything started to work fine.

 Then, add the code into the footer of my website that has many dynamic url and suddenly stopped showing my profile in Google searches

Can you google it considered spam?

Wait some days (usually 6/7) and then check your G+ profile snippet.
