I write for IBM Midsize Insider and all of us recently established Google authorship which puts our picture next to our articles anytime they show up on a Google search. Is there anyway to link Google authorship with our HP articles?
The above link gives some information about it. if you put
"how will obama's privacy policies influence" in a Google search you will see a recent article I wrote and how the authorship works.
Glennstok has written the definitive hub on this.

I did that but Google Authorship is a little bit different and there is html code involved in getting it to come up as authorship.
Hubpages' template automatically adds the necessary rel=author and rel=me HTML codes to our hubs and profile, once we've filled in our Google Plus url in our profile settings.
At least, it did the last time I checked. Hopefully nothing has busted during updates!
I see authorship info turning up in search results for some of my hubs but not others.
I don't see my photo next to my hubs on google searches. One of my hubs comes up on the first page of Google and other articles have author's photos but it doesn't have mine. I don't think linking the googl+ profile is the same as authorship but, hopefully HP will clarify.
You can see what data Google is getting out of a Hub (or any URL actually), using their Structured Data Testing Tool:
For instance here is one of your Hubs.
Simply having the data correct is the first step, but it doesn't necessarily mean that Google will use it in the search results. I'm not sure exactly how they decide, but it's up to them.
I've asked about that bug myself. It started in about September.
Before that, authorship was pretty straightforward ... Link all your articles to your Profile on the site where you publish with rel=author, then put rel=me Links between your member Profile and Google profile, and between your Google profile and member profile. Hubpages automatically does the first two links, so we just have to do the last one to close the loop.
Except something's gone wrong. That worked fine for most of 2011 and 2012, but lately I and other people are seeing Google override our authorship info sometimes, especially if we link to a book on Amazon or to the website of some person with social clout. That person's author icon sometimes appears on our article in the SERPs.
Yet many of my other hubs and articles display my authorship correctly.
This has been happening not just on HP but on other sites where I write. We've poked HP staff about it, but it certainly doesn't hurt to poke them again!
I actually posted about it on Google's webmaster forums and got a "we'll look into it" reply from a member of Google, but I don't hold out much hope of getting any response from them until a lot of people complain about it. (I've also left comments on searchengineland.com hoping that one of their authors will post on it, because they have enough clout that they might goad Google to work on it.)
I dunno. Keep agitating; I'd love to see this bug fixed, whatever's causing it.
I'm not quite following how I "close the loop" Can you please elaborate? They may be getting overridden because other authors have more clout..a Google thing, not a HP thing. I think tey should do something about it because it can be reputation damaging.

Where are we on this?I see Google has added a new way to verify authors: http://www.google.com/support/webmaster … er=1408986That would seem to make things easier, though we would have to go back and edit hubs unless HP would provide a way to do this automatically if we wanted to (and...

Sometime back when HP switched to the new profile we could not add out Google Authorship to the link. We were told that HP staff would take care of that as long as we linked to our Google profile.Prior to the new profile, all my hubs showed the rich snippet as displayed in the Google...

Okay, this is why I dreaded the coming changeover -- Google authorship was working just fine under the old format, but the new profile page won't recognize my Google profile URL because I have an old Google member profile.Which works just fine with Google authorship, but Hubpages' new profile...

A few weeks ago there was an issue with the wrong Google Authorship photos appearing in SERPs (i.e. Marcy's avatar showed up in the snippet for melbel's Hub). It seems to me, that ever since that issue was resolved, no Google Authorship photos show up any longer for any Hubbers. My authorship is...

Is it worth claiming Google authorship for your Hubpages articles?
by Paul Goodman 8 years ago
Looks like Google made another algo change earlier this week. My traffic rose about 25% on my main HP account around this time, so I'm guessing the update was the cause. My traffic is still low by historical standards (down by more than a third from the start of the year), but I...
