For a long time authorship picture in search has been working just fine TRDK 12/18/13 12:58 PM
For a long time authorship picture in search has been working just fine. Never had problems.

But since a couple of days it has disappeared.

The structured data testing tool shows that it's working fine. So Google's own test toll says:

Authorship is working for this webpage.
rel=author markup has successfully established authorship for this webpage.

So what is going own?

Thanks for any help

Mine is doing the same thing. I noticed it disappeared when I changed my profile picture.
I checked using the structured data testing tool, and everything looks great. It's just not great in the SERPs.

I hope it's just a bug and it will be fixed soon.
