I added my g+ 'posts' link in my hubpages profile, but my picture doesn't appear in the results. Any suggestions?
sort by best latest
I have problems after that. The tool confirms I'm the author of my hubs but my picture doesn't appear in search results beside my hubs. I'm not sure what to do now. Do I need a more "close-up" picture?
I've heard conflicting things about that. Altho Google says you need a recognizable thumbnail, it's not always the case. Did you get an e-mail from Google after you set up authorship?
Thomas, you need to be patient. However, even if your confirmed to have set up authorship, if Google doesn't feel your articles are good enough they may not allow your picture to show up next to your articles in search engines.
Is your profile picture on Google+ or just on HubPages?
I don't remember getting an email from google confirming I had set up authorship. I use the same photo on G+. So far I have put my HP profile in the contributer to section on G+, and have my G+ link on my HP profile. That should be it right?
Yeah, those are the right steps. Other people mentioned getting an e-mail after they set it up, and when I went back and checked I got one with the subject, "Welcome to Google Authorship!" It could be that it's a sign of approval from Google. *shrug*
