A Step by Step Flowchart To Help Troubleshoot Authorship Issues
If your Google Authorship doesn’t show up right away don’t worry. Matt Cutts indicated at PubCon “that Google will likely tighten up authorship which may decrease the number of authors shown in results by about 15%. The goal of this effort would be to improve the quality of authors they show and truly show valuable authors with high authority.” As of December 19, 2013 Matt Cutts stated, “I can confirm that this change has happened” but don’t give up. Keep at it! Keep focused! And follow the Google webmaster guidelines to building your authorship authority. This is important and NOT a waste of time because as Eric Schmidt of Google said, authorship could become the most important factor for ranking!
