I have seen many articles in google search results which have the authors pic beside them. My Dad also told me recently about "claiming authorship" with google to get this to work.
Is this possible with hubpages? Has anyone done it?
In theory, if you link your HP profile page with your Google+ profile, you should get your photo showing up in the search. In practice, there's a problem. Can't remember what the problem is, or whose problem it is - HP's or Google's, but there are at least a couple of threads knocking around on the subject. I do remember that at one point the wrong Hubbers' photos were turning up on hubs.
Here's one of the latest threads about it: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/107793
Thanks for the info. I seem to have the problem then. The thread about it you linked is helpful. There is a link in there to a verification tool. It says I'm verified and gives an example search result with my pic, but google search doesn't show it. I guess I'm an unfortunate one. Maybe I should change my pic to a close-up, it would probably help because I expect they have a face recognition tool.
All you have to do is add your Google+ profile to your external links- you can do this on the edit profile page under My Account.
Thanks for the info. What do you mean by add it to my external links? The only thing I can do in Edit Profile is to tell it my google+ account.. I did this months ago though.
I too show up wwhen gettng a preview on Google's test page, but no otherwise - I believe not all rich snippet enabled pages actually show that way as there are also some judgements / choices made by Google algorithms.
Great question - trying the 'my account' part, thanks!

Remember when your profile pic showed up in the search results along with your article on Google? They're getting of it. I was tempted to feel like this doesn't mean anything, but I think the pic makes people click through. At any rate, it doesn't get rid of authorship, just the pic. More over...

I noticed this morning that my profile pic was appearing next to hubber phdast7's comments on other people's hubs. At first I thought that it was a momentary glitch, so I refreshed, and it was still there. I clicked on the link to the comment, and my pic was still there. Here's a link to (one of)...

What does the number on my profile pic mean?The scores on my individual articles are in the mid-sixties. Does this mean that I am a poor writer according to the standards of Hubpages?

has a girl who was murdered as your profile pic??? I wasn't 100% sure at first but 99.9% since I followed the case every night and then looked it up. I can give you the same photo or her name if you want to look it up and that photo will come up online. I tried it because I was positive it was her....
